    I did mine myself. Here's a decent guide: http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showpo...6&postcount=22 . Also the bump stop mod: http://www.bowlingss.com/Mods/Instal...Stop%20Mod.mht .It isn't hard, just stay on the safe side. I used a die grinder and ordered flap wheels from: http://www.bulletindustries.com/cata...p/cPath/82_140 . They were the cheapest I could find.

    Some people remove the front swaybar because it helps in off the line straight acceleration. I'm not a fan of it because I like the tight cornering and stiffer handling.

    One of them , with the natural CAI and wider tires.

    What's the short belt mod? This is a new one to me. I've done some searching, and it does not seem to be out there very much...

    dont descreen your maf. it wont help, i disconected my front sway bar end links, you dont have to remove the whole thing but i hated the handling. i did the p&p TB and bumpstop and coolant bypass, all made a difference. i also did the heater hose mod, suprised noone brought this one up, that made it look loads better

    where you take out the 1 1/2 inch rubber cups that the top of your rear coil springs sit into. they cushion the contact of your rear coil springs and the body. if you pull the springs out, and take out that cup that just sits in there, you can get heater hose and run it along the first coil of your spring and it acts as the cushion but lowers the rear of your car by about an inch. i loved the difference since i cant afford a pro kit

    it is worth it if you cant afford a lowering kit. it evens out the rear with the front, or close to it
