    Think that should just about do me.

    Nice one Nicely! You car will then be even more similar to mine. My HKS Hyper Max D's are running 10kg springs in the front and 8kg in the rear - it's fairly stiff on the road to say the least! I don't know what you have planned but let me know how your spring rate suits on the road. I'm getting used to mine now - I was planning to switch to 8f and 6r. If it was a daily driver, I think I would. It'll be interesting to see if the BB version turbo makes a big difference in performance - spool wise etc (maybe high flow it before installation?). My brakes are standard at present, maybe future track time will highlight them for tinkering! Mind you, I'll try new pads and fluid before any hardware changes.
    What do you call a Rx7 with reliability, decent build quality and a better exhaust note? - a specR S15!

    The turbo shouldn't make much difference as its the same; just newly new. I've got one or two minor worries about my current one (other than a leaking water feed ) and it makes me concerned that it may be about to die. The newly new one came up for sale at a very good price, so I got it.

    I've got softer coilovers. A mate got the stiffer ones and warned me about ahving to take out a Denplan policy...

    I warped my standard disks and got horrendous fade on standard pads on my first S15 track day last year... Some decent Project Mu Street or Ferodo DS2500 pads help a lot.

    Can vouch for decent pads

    You must have some desk space to fit all that under it

    The drift cars have the graphics mirrored on one side so that all the stickers line up symetrically.

    If they didn't reverse them, the other side would only look similar, ie the words would be going the other way along the car.
