since you're already doing the brakes, you could always swap to 300zx. That would kill a lot of your budget though.

That and they wouldn't fit under your blacks. Unless... you had some 300zx blacks =)

Well, since you *think* your stock brakes are good enough, and you have springs and struts (you failed to mention what kind), you don't want to mod the engine, and you have 1170 left to spend. Here's some options:

- SS Brake lines, you'll need them to make those stock brakes feel somewhat adequate when the SR goes in. ($100)
- Get a CF hood, weight reduction is never a bad thing. ($600)
- Get an LSD ($300-800)
- Get a K&N Cone filter and the adaptor to mate it to your MFAS, you can use it again on the SR later.
- Get an assortment of gauges that'll benefit you when the SR goes in (Boost, Oil Pressure, Water Temp)
- Get a set of electric fans, you'll gain a couple HP and you won't have to worry about the Mechanical fan shroud when the SR goes in.

I'm sure I'm leaving LOTS of things off, but whatever.

- Steve

(I'm just so happy and cheery at finals time)

You can get a whole LSD pumpkin for the amount Steve mentioned and it bolts right on if you get a Nismo or S14 one.

As for the fan... I have a FLA220 flexalite dual 12"... more than enough for my SR. I got it here

for $204 shipped. Hope it helps...
