the probe vulcan, and other vulcans are a bit diffferent though, most others have a map sensor, when the probe does not.

Your right about the sensor. The probes ecu and wiring harness is also different, along with minor changes thoughout the years. The block, and many internal parts are the same and could be swapped.

What about how Porsche 911 carrera brakes are direct fit on a 2G (twin pot!).....
I think I'd buy a 2g just to put Carrera brakes on it. I didn't know that....

Millenia calipers are a better fit.

From this thread going in the Racing/Suspension forum, we have found that 99-03 Protege coilovers are compatible.
http://forums.probetalk.com/showthread.php?t=1701137475
93GTSR - Ty - says he is currently running them, and by the looks of his pics and pics of a Protege install we have, the strut top hats have the same bolt patterns front and rear and the strut mounting brackets to the spindles are the same.
Only difference is the Protege coilovers have a tab for mounting their sway bar link, we dont have this and it does not interfere with install on a probe.

Dont all cars that came with mcpherson (not sure on spellin) struts fit on our cars?

There is a gentleman in Elkton, MD that has this setup on his NASA Series track car, and 93? PGT, White. I believe he, with his machinist, would be making a limited production run of these brake kits, bolt on.

Millenia Calipers, HD rotors, bracket and hardware......even the option of NASCAR Brake pads......

I'll touch base wth him, see where they are at on production.

Todd did it. Goes under the name b16 something around here. I bought an exhaust from him a while ago, and said he had about 10 kits lying around, completed. I think thats what you meant by gentleman in elkton Travis.

Lower fuel injector o-rings from any gen 4 chrysler V-6 engine, or gen 4 chevy small block will fit the probe.

Fel Pro ES70599, Niehoff Ignition 27478 (I am not 100% confident on the neihoffs, this set is a upper and lower, but may be direct replacements for our upper and lower), GP Sorensen 8009212 should all work, I used the fel pro ones. (2.99 a pack, 4 rings per pack)
