You should have to struggle to put on a good FSTB...that's when you know it's keeping inward pressure on the strut towers to counteract the constant outward pull on the car. Easily bolting on the threaded style then tightening them is pretty useless.
agreed

Overdrive crank pulley for the kl 2.5 engine ...
Did some research on here, and 6.625 seems to be the biggest possible, without hitting the water pump pulley.

Also with that maybe a larger alt pulley, so it doesnt overdrive the alt.
This could be used with the clutched m62 sc'r , and other people with a sc, that want more boost.

Another vote for Camber plates - with the correct size hole in the spherical bearing for the Bilstein coilovers that AWR Racing sells.

hmm, thats about it in the front i think

Rear:
trailing arms both ends
front control arms both ends
rear control arms both ends
sway bar bushings

im sure a lot of PGT owners are driving around with clunking suspensions waiting on someone to make, or at least put together a kit of existing bushings for a GE platform, because theres no point wasting money on OEM replacemet shit

id be down for a full suspension bushing kit, my shit is clunking bad everywhere, ebay coilovers are destroying the 14 year old rubber bushings

A good quality 2.2 N/A header since the Pacesetter one is complete junk.
A header for the 3.0 since there isn't one that exists.
Turbo manifold.
Turbo downpipes.
Catbacks for any of the 1st gens.
Sway bars
Trailing arms
Strut bars
Shifters
SS brake lines
Big brake kit


I could honestly go on all night. 1st gens really need some support, we have practically nothing to work with.



Also, I'm not sure what exactly you guys are limiting yourselves from making, but carbon fiber body panels would be nice also.

Hood
Hatch
Fenders
Doors A pipe dream of mine right now for the 1st gen, since the factory ones weigh a ton.

I'm intrigued with the mention of a side mount. Do you have any pictures or a link of this mount? Also how much is it?

I would love to see a light-weight pully kit for the 2.5 V6, and a stock sized crank pulley too. I hate underdrive pully's!
