This is killing me. I can't wait for the weather to warm up in March/April so I can start to install these parts. Brutal waking up every morning and starring at this...

Parts list so far:
-SSC lowering springs
-KYB GR2 struts
-New mounts
-shorter dogbones
-anti pogo washers
-ZZP Plog
-Autolite 104s (parts below won't be put on until top swap)
-ZZP 10.3mm wires
-ZZP 3.4" MPS
-180 t-stat
-I was also able to pick up 2 sets of Mechanix gloves for $20

I was hesitant at buying these wires at first, even after reading all the rave reviews, but I am glad I bought these. These wires are huge and you can't help but notice them. The wires are good quality, not the best I have ever seen. I installed these along with MSD Coil Packs and Bosch IR fusion +4...

i figured out how to get to the back passenger one. i layed under the car and had 1 hand through the tire well and the other through the downpipe hole. IMO pretty easy that way to change that one out.

Everytime i went to a local meet everybody would see my spark plug wires and my clear airbox. Cool

I wouldn't dare try to change my spark plugs myself. Reading about how much of a PITA to do.

Don't sit on them as long as I have. I got my springs in July of last year, my struts in November of last year, mounts and rubber parts in February and assembled them in May. Now they are assembled and sitting in my garage waiting for me to install them...

And I thought I had it bad, all I have is a DP to put on. You gonna get a tune after that pulley drop? EDIT: Nevermind, you haven't top swapped yet, have you?

No, haven''t really got any parts for the swap yet. Just what's listed. In April I plan on calling Morad and getting the majority of the parts. Twisted Evil

I was looking for your thread earlier to do more research. Could you link me?I'll probably install mine as soon as spring time hits. This drop needed to happen mainly because of the 19s. Any tips for the compressing the spring?
