That all looks really good. Is this purely performance? Is the only suspension work you've done the tein s techs?
If yes, what about swaybars (specifically, get a good adjustable rear one)? Endlinks? Bushings? Those all make a huge difference. I would get rid of those strut bars for the complete end. I still will stand by that strut bars are quite controversial and may end up doing nothing for you.

Thats all I can really think of. Good selection on all the stuff ya have there.

good selection of mods~!

for now what i can think of other than what holycrikey has already suggested is TWE P&P head, whiteline anti-lift kit, and some sort of body kit~

at the mean time, maybe you can do some dyno testing and drag slips. we'd be very interested in how much power this mods would put down to the wheels.

That is a nice car with a nice list of mods that will be going on soon. I bet you make around 140awhp maybe even as high as 150 with the PP tuned properly, and man the torque will be very nice. I would expect to see around 160ft/lbs at the wheels. I'm jealous. I'm saving the money now so that I can put down that kind of power somtime in the fall.

As far as what you could add. I could make a long list of stuff, but will keep it short.

How about some brake upgrades? You could get larger rotors and some pads with SS lines and some nice fluid. Or if you want to go all out you could get some nice subaru 4 pots on the front, and maybe even some 2 pots in the rear. No sense in having all that power if you can't slow it down.

Or you could finish up with some small suspension bits. You will probably want to get some group N top mounts as the stock RS ones are too soft. Rear sway bar would be good with some end links. You could get an ALK if you wanted too. How about some new steering rack bushings to make the steering feel a little better? Those are a few other ideas.

Or you could spend more money to make more power. You could get a nice set of heads to match. With the PP on the car I would'nt be surprised if you made 170awhp or a little more. Or you could (flame suit on) get nitrous. Yeah I know a lot of people here frown on it, but if you get away from your F&F phobia you will see that it's a great mod if you want a quick burst of power at the strip or on the street. I mean you are getting the PP installed, so you would be able to tune the car for it. The PP can switch between two maps. So you could have a regular map, and a nitrous map. I bet with nitrous you would put down over 200awhp and who knows what kind of torque. Can you say high 13's?

But, thats all IMO. If, and when I have the money my car will look something like this.

I'd dump the strut bars and put on sway bars (well, rear anyways).
Those springs are going to kill your struts. get some aftermarket struts!
what kind of tires are you running on those wheels?
Where do you live? does it snow? get some snow tires.

looks good... staying with stock springs for now? GR2s are good all around struts Springs would be my only thing just because it's easy to do both struts/springs at the same time... or if you do springs later get new hats while you have them out
