$10k for upgrades need advice

Let's say I have $10k just laying around to mod the boss with. What mods should I buy and why? Let me start by saying I am not looking to do any type of forced induction. I will be tracking the car on a road course. Looking mainly for suspension, bolt on upgrades, cooling, breaking etc

With 10k u would have a lot of things done!!!!!!
For the track my #1 advice is upgrading the brakes. For the first few times the last thing u will want is more power lol. Specially with a boss

Bolt on rear end brace on AM. Only requires two holes drilled in the pumpkin. Wilwoods for brakes.. That's my brand of choice and dot 3-4 fluid. Lower it, cage it, take weight off, and use water wetter!

You pretty much nailed what's in my mind. I'm thinking just like McQueen also Im about to order some HPS brakes BC it is my dd as well. Then I'm thinking maybe the rear brake upgrade, lowering it, maybe even coil overs, maybe that rear end brace, rear seat delete or full on roll cage like McQueen lol racing harness, by that time I will probably break down and finally have it tuned

Oh I forgot the most important thing new rims and sticky tires. I'm most likely going 18x9.5or10 all around. Maybe gold or black Forgestar's 18x10 all around with some sticky ickys on there

WHATT??? U still not tuned?? Shame on uuuuuuuu lol jk

I have the HPS for dd and if u want for track days get the hp plus, just take it easy on the first lap because they need to be HOT to work correctly and on the streets they sound like a train stopping lol it is so embarrassing everyone looks at u like ur brakes are F up lol

They have a big *** sign in the back saying "not for drag racing" lol

Sve or AM are a much better choice price wise for track rims also lightweight. If they F Up it wouldn't hurt as much but if u have the $$$$ then get the forgestar. Hoosier R6 295 30 18 on a 18x10 is a good set up.

I knew the itch would come sooner or later. I'm thinking VMP for my tunes. What do you suggest other than a dyno tune?

I've heard the ams are heavy and the quality sucks. The enkie and Forgestar's are right at 20lbs a piece. I need to get a one piece shaft as well.

So I'm gonna ask this. Do you know anyone running meth on the track NA? Over the last couple hours I have read some good stuff about it. Any thing I need to do to use it? It basically turns your gas into race fuel and helps cool everything down.

ditch the dot 3-4 fluid for some 5.1...you'll never worry about boiling while you're under heavy braking. i did the swap and never looked back

you are correct never use dot 5 it is silicon based...however dot 5.1 is polyclycol based and is perfectly safe and is used for racing applications

that works...if you do the swap buy plenty..you'll have to fully bleed the old fluid out of the system ...so rent a vaccuum pump

If you use the 5.1 fluid with ss lines and hawk pads what kind of a difference should one expect going from stock

Only seen high hp car run this but none at the road course. Ur boss will be fine with stock cooling. I was also thinking about this if I ever go FI and track it but for now I see no need. It could also be illegal to run it as some events so I have to check into that

U would want the Hoosier R6 that are for the road course because the A6 are for autocross. Look that the sve from LMR they are awesome IMO for track 18x10.

I just emailed them about the SVE drifts. I like them but I have a feeling they are going to be heavy. I'm looking to stay as close to 20lbs per wheel as possible. 24-25 max

They fit but u might need a spacer because it might rub with the brake cooling ducts.
