You talking about the vent on the side of the white MR2 we got here?

Guilty as charged. Now, stop bouncing around town.

Ok, first things first. The struts may have blown shocks, but the springs will give a better ride, use the springs with your strut assemblies.
I have spare heads, but the one I started porting is not done. Suspension bushings can be found at Prothane, get the rack bushings too. The motor mounts are aa bit of a challenge though. The torque bushings, front and rear are available, but I can't find the compqany that makes them. I'll keep looking though. The left and right "hangers" I haven't found, but a urethane mix can be poured to reinforce them. I have a 2 part urethane mix. Sway bars should be balanced to your springrates and shock damping. Brakes, you are on your own, I like the brakes on the car already. The brakes will lock all the tires with no problems, try stickier tires first. If you get the right transaxle you'll already have an LSD. A lot of the 6 speed trannys came with LSD. Cams need be balanced to the rest of the engine. Just remember that stock cam followers are only good to about 8.5 mm lift, after that you risk throwing a shim. I have a set of TRD under bucket type followers if you are interested though. Cam gears are made by a lot of companies. And the side skirts are not mine to give or sell, sorry, they belong to the Little Deuce Poupe'. Team effort on that bit bro. Besides, they are chewed up a bit, need a little work. Get my # from Big Mike, or come up with him next time he comes up here.

Hey Chee,

Can you use these cam gears? I might want to pick up these cams but I can't afford the entire auction right now... It ends tomorrow morning

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280561746237

Pair of WebCam grind 577s and a pair of HKS adjustable cam gears

Currently it's at $300 and no bids


EDIT: Actually, I am not sure if I want grind 577. They are not aggressive enough for my future plans...
