Are you going to run any boost or keep it NA? I think others here will agree that you might not like a 2 1/2" exhaust system (you'll lose torque if you stay NA). Our cars do fairly well with the 1 7/8" stock piping. BUT, if you get a better free-flowing muffler (highly recommend a Borla ProXS) and a mandrel-bend axle pipe, you'll notice a little more oomph.

Also, have you done the throttle body bypass?

I like your list, reminds me of mine somewhat. (: If you go and find my member thread I made, I have a complete write up on the Racelands on our cars, as I have them but on an 05, if you want to read up.

so 2.5 in is too big for an na setup, maybe a 2 in exhaust w/ a flowmaster muffler....

Oh and no I haven't done the tb bypass and I'm not sure I should with the winters we have up here....

As for the Raceland coilovers, how low did they put you? Cause if its too low I might just go with some lowering springs instead.
