#1269373 - 06/29/06 05:31 PM

Loking for CEG's input on products and services to be released from PRT's shop for the CDW-27 crowd. I've got several products in mind and in the works that are listed below, but i'ld also love for you guys to supply me with any products you'ld like to see released.

Suspension:

-Boxed front 2-bolt LCA's with shperical bearings in place of the bushings

-Tubular forward and rear arms for the rear suspension

-Tubular and triangulated RSTB

-Upgraded rear subframes

-Spherical endlinks for front and rear swaybars

-Front LCA boxing plates for 2 and 4 bolt arms

-Harness bar, perhaps with a camera mount


Performance:

-Beyond-optimized y-pipe, steps are taken to go beyond the usual optimiation for maximum flow, will be flow tested.

-Optimized TB's

-Fiberglass heatshields

-Fiberglass pin-on hood and trunk

-Mandrel cat-back fabrication


Asthetics:

-Powder and ceramic coating at insanly good prices

-Fiberglass paintable tank(p/s,brake,overflow) and battery covers, i may also look into haveing them CF wraped

-Acid dipped badges, antenna bases, grill rings for painting

-Badgeless SVT stock mesh grill - still working on this, may or may not happen on a more than one scale.

-Molded\repaired Splitters - no job too big, you'll see what i mean soon enough

-Molded jack-point covers into skirts

-Molded gauge pod in place of coin tray

-Shaved front keyhole door handles

-Mirko skidplates

Services:

-Intake re-bilding

-Suspension swaps

-Header installs

....i've done most everything maintanance wise at least once.

tubular frt lower control arms with adjustable ball joints, and camber/caster adjustments for both 2 and 4 bolt designs (2 bolt will be easier obviosly, could use poly bushings or spherical links)

adjustable tie-rod ends to help eliminate bump steer for those that have extremly lowered their car.

frt strut tower braces that bolt to the towers and the firewall for added rigidity.

thats all i can think of for now.
