Coilovers

Taking into account the advice you guys gave me i'm gonna skip out on headers and start working on the cars' suspension, to avoid dealing with a bunch of bull **** i think i'm just gonna save up for some good coilovers. I heard tein was good so if anyone's got em lemme know what you think, or what other brands are good, also what else should i get to compliment them?

first off, excellent idea to start with suspension, thats what i did and i am really happy. but, im not to keen on what a good set of coilovers are. but as for your other question on what to get to compliment them, first off, never go to cheep with suspension, which im sure you know. with that being said, get yourself a progress rear sway bar.. its expensive but worth it. i got one and and couldnt be more happy.

tein type flex, JIC magic.

very expensive, but worth every penny. adjustable height and damping on both!
The JIC's are monotube which is better for autocross.
The Tein's are dualtube which tend to overheat and fail with heavy track use.

Either will be fine for regular road use.

werd werd, well seeing as performance is definitely a priority over aesthetics, u think the JIC's would be the better choice? My friend told me the tein's were really good for a achieving diveristy in ride height easily but didnt really mention much about their performance.
