Mine will just be a daily driver. I have just about finished the interior, new carpet, leather, stereo, camera, carbon wrap the dash console. My summer tires are being delivered, rpf1 18 9.5 45 offset with ps4 265 35. After I get it back and we get some weather to paint in I will complete the exterior. Andrew also put in my new suspension and brakes in the conversion.

I'm joining the ranks here as well. Andrew is aiming for mid-March for my delivery. Very excited.

What are you track guys using for suspension and brakes on these?

I'll start with the current setup - EBC Turbo Groove discs and Stoptech pads. I'll add air ducts and see if it has enough thermal capacity.

As for the suspension I'll be installing KW V3 and 90Sha poli bushings all around.

I'm also upgrading the diff with 4.10 FG and Eaton Detroit Trutrack LSD.

Engine is another story...

If you don't have a good reason to get the KW's, I'd recommend something else.
I have them and they're good but the rear springs are progressive rate. It's not a deal breaker but it makes the math and tuning more complicated. I'd recommend something with linear rate springs all around (like Ohlins or a custom setup from FatCat) if your budget/circumstances allow.

I had a great deal on KW so I'm going to stay with it for this season. I also had an option for KW Competition but it was much more expensive and takes 6-8 weeks to build.
I'll be looking into dofferent springs if it turns out to be not sufficient.

Looking forward to see your cars ready. Mine will be ready somewhere around April I think...

I've been talking with Good-Win about their custom setup (13k/8k springs) and think I'm going that route. I'll be running 275 r comps on the track, i think the grip will overwhelm softer springs.

Do any of you have any data on what the swap did for weight to your car? Andrew seems to think the base model I have will weigh in at 2850 lbs, barely a 50 lb uptick from stock.
