Uh, I like the ride with my H&Rs, and so does pretty much everyone else I've ever seen that is using them.

The spring rates are 575/285, whereas eibachs are 628/257 (max).

I like mine, I just am tired of having to avoid some speedbumps and whatnot... i guess it's not really that big a deal but things like that just bug me. I would have even just thrown the stock springs on, but I threw out all my old stock parts cause we had too much crap piling up in my parents carport and I didn't want to haul it all down here.

Anyways I just figured I would ask, if nobody is interested then I'll just put some spacers on/shim the front. But just cause you don't have/like them doesn't mean they are garbage...but then again my old struts were pretty damn worn out so pretty much anything was an improvement

Just ordered SP61gt!

It was on sale so i figured i'd get it now then do the engine... kinda the opposite way i wanted to do things but the conversion rate hurts and any sale is good in my books

yeah don't worry about that...
and also if you are worried the stock manifold flow, i know of a direct bolt-on tubular mani that's pretty much past the development stages - just not sure if/when he's producing them but the possibility is there, and maybe even sooner than later.

Tim @ SP recommended that i get the stock ext. mani ported because that's the restriction point.

instead of paying for porting, spend the money and buy an air compressor, die grinder, and carbide bits

It's not all that restrictive...That said, my manifold is ported to all hell and you can see the obvious difference

Only thing I don't like about the sp61gt is the internal wastegate

Ryan, remember not everybody wants to go with a T4 manifold, run an ext wastegate , use a v-band...

the sp61 is 100% bolt on, not even in the same league as the 67
our turbos are good for 700rwhp+
