    i wanted to use this TQ arm>> http://www.umiperformance.com/catalo...roducts_id=212

    with either 2 point (boxed) or 3point SFC
    That torque arm will work, the only downfall is it does reduce ground clearance and will be your lowest point on the car. We have to drop it low enough to clear the y-pipe.

    Are you getting as custom built true dual system around the torque arm or a off shelf unit with dumps like the TSP?

    custom built duels

    Okay good, if you get custom built duals they can work them right through the torque arm.

    The 2-Point boxed would be fine as well. The 3-Points are great but are overkill unless you are pushing some really quick 1/4 mile times.

    1/4 should be low 10s/high 9s with spray

    That's a tough call then... if you are seriously considering running 9's you might want to look at the chromoly option as well. Its not a must but if you are going to the track often running those times you want to consider it.

    For the subframe connectors again it is a tough call.. I feel you would be fine either way.

    Ryan,
    I'm looking into buying your UMI Stage 2 K member. It's comes with parts: 2320, 2300, and 2311. Would it be possible to get 2305 instead of 2300? also, what is the difference in lower A arms? Is the rod version better or louder than the poly version?

    Also, is there a benefit io running the autocross version on the street, like extra strength?

    Sommer, Yes we can supply that kit with the #2305 street A-Arms at the same price. Before Thanksgiving we will have new kits on the site that will include these A-arms. The street A-Arms with polyurethane bushings are designed for street use, rod ends can add some noise and harshness to the vehicle. If the vehicle is being street driven go with #2305 A-Arms, rod ends will be for high handling or drag racing.

    There would be no benefit to using the road race k-member on the street, we only recommend road race k-member if the vehicle is actually being road raced. If not get the standard version.

    Let me know if I can help anymore. Thank you!
    Ryan
