I believe he blew the motor a lil while back and that's why he's not driving it. Not sure tho.

I'd say you'd be okay you may see it lift the engine a little higher, or move the front wheels forward. But if you have adjustable arms then there are ways around it.

I didn't have to move my oil filter with my qa1... And you can reuse your factory a arms so you can run the stock spring and strut, or buy the kit that comes with everything including sleeves so you can use factory style struts and still have coilovers

All I had to do was just grind a Lil bit off of the tie rods, but I have 17s to... Weird though cause other than push my wheels to the front just a little bit, mines the same width as it was with the factory k and arms... Do you have the tubular a-arms or did you keep the factory?

Got the tubular control arms I don't get it either I looked and looked could not find anything like what I have going on I bought some 1/4inch spacers and it stopped it if the wheels are strait but if I turn the wheel from 12 oclock to 4 o'clock it rubs my wheels aren't pushed forward at all either and when u grinded your tie rods did u have to do both sides I did had to take an inch or so off both sides

I have a PA racing tubular K member. I had their tubular A-arms to, but the rims, yes the inner rim would rub their A-arms at anything past about a 80% turn (meant no U-turns). But I just refurbished the stock A-arms with prothane bushings, steeda X2s and bump steer and I'm really happy with the car Now. Ohh and my K member has spring perches, obviously why I was able to re-use the stock A-arms. Car also shook badly at or above 90mph with the tubular A-arms, thus more of a reason to go back to stock. My oil filter is ok, a little tight, but still Abel to take off with no problem. So yes I gained another 10lbs or so but for a street car they feel more comfortable.

My problem is that it hits the coilovers to the point if I had to turn hard it would spin the spring I can go lock out to lock out doesn't touch the arms in fact still have all most an inch I had guy tell me to get the adjustable arms because you can get then out more but I put my winter rims on now no rubbing at all I the I'm gonna get the one inch adapters hopefully that should fix it when I put my saleens back on

Up until about a year agoI posted in the 3.8l forum because this car was originally a V6. Then I found a 2000 GT donor and had all the Drivetrain stuff swapped in and now I have a GT. The gauges I have are Autometer Lunar V6 gauges. I seldom go faster than 120mph...lol and I kept these gauges because I think they are easier to read and look great with the larger numbers. Ohh and I didn't feel like forking out another $350-400 for more gauges. I like em.
