Ok, so here are what I have on order atm..

Tiburon bucket seats from ebay.. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...RTQ:MOTORS:1123 - talking him down to where i only get the front seats laugh.gif
New 2.5" in 4" out exhaust (getting ready for my boost project this summer) getting a cuttout on the bumper so I can tilt the exhaust up and out a little so when I drop i can still go up driveways.
Coilovers - ATM talking the guy down on the price over the phone today after work.

Soon to come this summer:
Rims
tint
Jattus stage 2 kit..
Stage 3 clutch. - don't know what kind yet to get. And don't have to tools to install myself. Anyone have a price guess?

I'm getting the PFD this year so I'll have more money then normal to spend on mods. I'll post pics of the seats, exhaust and coil overs once they are installed.

This is true. BUT! I have the money and have been on the NT forums a lot here recently and have seen the potential of the beta2 that they have done over there. It's pretty sweet. I have no car payments or anything owed on the car so it makes it a good money pit for the time being. I now get he pfd so I can now look forward to better things instead of attempting to save up which never happens due to I'm in college. But I also got a nice raise at my job so a little more money. Plus full time this summer.

I have read up on the NGM shit and everyone who have ordered from them never get their stuff. There is a guy on ElantraXD that hasn't gotten all of his parts for over a year. I plan on going through with this project tho. I'll keep yall updated on what is being done with photos.

Oh also, I know i can use the tib steering wheel. but is there another steering wheel i can use besides that? Like a more sporty one?

4" exhaust? You'd need about 40psi of boost to require an exhaust that large.

You'll need the second generation airbags for the GK and God help you if they ever needed. I can see spending the money on performance, but it's a waste, AND very dangerous, to screw around with the airbags.

Of course he does. Typically at least once a week too! tongue.gif

Sounds like quite a few projects you have planned. Good luck!

Thank you. Right now I am still trying to talk down the Ebay guys on the seats. So far they want 150$ for the front seats with 200$ shipping. I'm trying to see if he can go down on the price due to the 150 was for the front and back seats.

Also question about a turbo kit...

Would it be wise to piece my own together? I've been talking to a few guys over on NT and they say that it can work and it will be cheaper. I also emailed the jattus guys to see their opinion due to they have a lot of the turbo's and header that I would need. I'll keep yall updated on what jattus has to say.

The coilovers I had to call the guy from ebay and he would give them to me for 800$.. I'll check the FS threads to see if anyone is selling their used ones.

Anyway. Things are coming together. Should have pics up as soon as my exhaust is in the 2nd. smile.gif
