SixPackSurprise Progress Documentation

General Information

When I first got the car, it was ready for a junkyard. It barely ran, the exterior was beat up, the interior was destroyed to be polite about it, The suspension was ****ed for lack of better words, etc.. you get the point. Since I got it through the pics you can see, I've replaced lower control arms w/ ball joints, installed lowering springs, replaced sway bar end links, added 2003 GT dual piston brakes, installed new OEM Replacement 97 Cobra headlights, and started the convert the trashed Saddle Tan interior over to black. Considering my car has manual windows/locks, the door panels were a PITA to find. I had to drive through 3 states to get them, Replaced center console, replaced trashed carpet with Factory carpet out of a friends 96 Cobra when he took it out to build a drag car with his. etc... I still have a ways to go, but as you can see, its getting there.

My hobby away from my car is building firearms (glocks, and AR platform rifles)...
 
Added the cars first "go fast" goodie... The OE Intake tube was torn and filter was nasty, so I figured why not..
 
Ok, update time... In the last 2 weeks, I've gotten tired of the sloppyness and squeaking from the suspension so, I added/upgraded. Prothane Polyurethane Front lower control bushings, Prothane Sway Bar Endlinks, Prothane Front Sway bar bushings, BMR Rear lower Control Arms with poly bushings, BMR Rear upper control arms with Poly bushings, Added the AmericanMuscle housebrand Cold Air Intake, And I haven't put them on yet, But I picked up a set of OEM 06GT Rims. I need to transfer tires over and add 1.5" Spacers in the rear and 1" spacers in the front due to offset differences.
 
Feel Like A New Beast!! LOL It Will Feel Good On The Road Handling Will Be Much Tighter!! Power Only Good If You Can Get It To The Road, Suspension Big Part Of That, Goin At It In Right Way From What You've Said.
 
Yes, I'm a firm believer in "Power is nothing without control". I'm working on getting the car itself ready to handle any amount of power over stock, before I actually start trying to put power down.
