Well first I am goin to upgrade my Torque Converter in Feb. after that I want to work on handeling: FSTB, RSTB, Antisway Bar, coilovers, tires, etc. All set up for the Summer of 2003 when mt QG will be sporting Trav's QG18DET HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. That is my future plans.
currently I am sporting full bolt ons. within a few weeks I'll have the brake lines offered by Greg V. at Mossy. I'm looking into some dampers, and I am currently unsure of how much more I want to spend on the car until I pay off some debt.
Well i currently have on my actual engine a JWT POP style intake, UR underdrive pulley, HS header. Nothing else.
Reason i ask is because everyone but us seem to be doing things. I know we're not made out of money but we gotta have goals and ambitions. I know i do. I am currently trying to get some stuff together but its not easy. Specially this being my first time that i get into the performance world. I cant really say what im gonna do to mine because i dont like jumping to conclusions and what not. But i wont leave you guys out when something happens.
I just wanna know where everyone wants to go with theirs.
So without jumping to conclusions what DO you have planned?
Just wondering what would the All-Star setup be for a QG staying in a middle income bracket (ex. "X" is the best coilover, but "Y" is just as good yet cheaper) suspension wise, just throw stuff out and stick an appox. price if possible....
All star setup. Well thats a thread of its own lol. How bout you start it and ill put in what i think would be an All Star setup for the middle income bracket. That be a good topic. Its one of those things that one person think one way and another will think that their way is better.
Sorry i will not talk about certain things. I however will talk about my tranny. Its an Auto. When i bought my car i never cared about fast cars. The bug finally bit me but i have no regrets about my tranny. Best auto tranny ive ever driven by far. I have an extra TQ converter that i will be sending away to get worked on. Im also looking for an extra Valve Body. Im also gonna do the tranny Fluid cooler but ive been to lazy to buy one. They are dirt cheap. I want my tranny to hold up some power.
Well the Tranny is def. gonna need to hold up above 200whp, I hope. I haven't heard or read much about the auto's holding up some decent hp. Enlighten me, if possible, PLEASE!
I have the Turbo fund building as we speak,ok'd by the wife (that was the hardest part) and by this summer................. well you know. I figured, and read that Trav mentioned the upgraded clutch so I knew a TC was a must. The VB mod is for quicker shifts from what i gather, and i am gonna hold out on it till i have the money to do it most likely after the boost. but if the tranny cant hang I may start seriously looking at a tranny swap, I really want to keep the Magic (automagic that is).
I think this has been a three man forum for the past month.
Well no body has taken the auto tranny up that much yet. All i can tell you is that the 1.8 and 2.0 have the exact same auto tranny except the 2.0 has a larger final gear. In case you do end up getting a new tranny you might wanna look at one for the 2.0.
as of last night, I purchased a 5" LCD monitor and mobile DVD player for install in my ride. Gonna get some help from Nismogirl2001 on installing it in the pop up compartment. Once that's done......It'll be niiice to cruise around
