    Drive the car around and let the computer adjust to the mods. Give it a few pulls and have some fuckin fun.

    You'll have the ses light on do you still have the o2 sensors in? If you have an ory and no rear o2's then yes it will throw a code-not going to hurt you. Hopefully the car runs rich (safe mode) like most the other cars you'll be good to go any other mods on the way?

    Maybe a catback on the way. Probably not much more in terms of performance. Maybe a short shifter. New tires for sure. Should I put the rear O2s in? Or leave them out?

    The rear o2's just make sure the cats are doing there job if you have cats then yes plug them in, if you no longer have cats then just unplug them or leave them in and have them tuned out when you get a tune.

    Absolutely, feels like you are driving on rails! Plus it is just good for the car, takes care of any tweaking on the unibody on hard launches!

    You have a convertible. I've had a vert (96 Z28 vert). You know how it sorta feels loose when you go over railroad tracks or on not so smooth roads? Weld in SFC's make all of that go away..... it'll feel more like a hardtop - stiffer actually.

    If it was a t-top I would say skip the sfc's since you have a convertable it would probably be a good investment. Everyone seems to agree on lower control arms for traction, and relocation brackets for lowered cars.

    Yes! Well worth doing on a vert. Check out BMR weld-ins - did great things for my vert to improve handling and stability.

    I have a T-top car and I definitely noticed a difference once they were in! But then again, I put on the LCA's and both panhard bars before I actually tested it on the road. HUGE difference!

    Well I'll definitely get them next then. Can anyone link me to some good bolt on SFCs? And my car sounds like a damn monster with the headers.
