Question Who's got 3.0 projects underway?

I just got a 2.5" catalytic converter installed yesterday. I'm getting the TCCA intake next as well as porting and polishing a lower intake manifold. That's probably going to be about it for mods for me for a long time except for some minor things. Who's got some fun plans in the works now?

Hey Barry what's up? I don't have anything planned much right now except getting my car IM'd so that I can install the Zex kit. I've been waiting this whole time for emmisions because I didnt want it to stop me from getting my tags. After that I'm sure my clutch will start slipping so I am probably going to get a kevlar clutch or something that can handle it. The high flow cat (or test pipe) sounds like a great idea especially if it makes the car sound better like you mentioned on PT. OH, and I DO plan on taking off the Pacesetter muffler and replacing it with something that's better and stainless steel.

So,

Exhaust plans: 2.5" High Flow Cat, New muffler
Engine: Nitrous, needs new spark plugs (will get NGKs 1 step colder) Also, the TCCA Intake looks really nice but I would like to see one installed on a Probe before I get it. ALso, I might have to wait around for another BB unless they will sell single intakes.
Ignition: Badly needs upgraded - will probably go with MSD ingition coil and control box -

LOTS of stuff are planned, it just takes time and money which I have neither of.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I also have a big brake upgrade planned for the future with bigger rotors and better pads and such.

Then there is the rims, and the paint job - but that's going to cost MUCHO money!

You know I do!
Porting and polishing the heads, SI Stainless Hi-Flow Valves, Crane springs, retainers, the works.
Adding more boost, copper head gaskets and ARP head studs for the holidays.
