don't even bother with PCing you drums. you will be happier by just doing a rear disk swap.

and the dual halo projectors? take it from someone that bought them: don't. the halos have barely any illumination, and the quality is kinda shitty. the only way to adjust them, is to take them out of the car.

you should however add: smoked front turns.

I totally forgot to add them to the list!! I am doing that. And how difficult is the whole disk brake conversion. My girlfriend already bought me the dual halos so we'll see. If I don't like them I can always sell them.

difficulty? can you turn a wrench? use a car jack? take a off a wheel? bleed a brake line? replace a drum shoe? remove (and put back on) a "C" clip?

if you answered yes to those questions, it is easy.

I think I scored a 70%. It's not a fail :p. I do not know how to bleed a brake line, but I'm sure I could learn easily with a little research on google. Using a C clip doesn't seem to difficult. Replacing a pad doesn't seem to difficult either. Just have no first hand experience.

My drums like to resemble a subway coming to a halt sometimes. And I'd loveeee some rear calipers. I love the way they look

Sounds good. What's a good estimate of costs I'd be looking at, $200 ish? Because I'd put that up last on the "to-do" list. Most expensive mods there would be the intake and the sub. So those come first for me. And I've been looking at some how-to's. This forum is setup so well, I'm new but it's so easy to search and find exactly what you need. I find it funny when everyone gets yelled at to search and they're all like "OMgZ I sEarcHed AnD NuTin WaZ HeLpIN" and then someone else searches and find exactly what they need. Haha.

well, price is REALLY variable. it depends on how cheap you can find the parts. i got the ebrake (drums, but smaller) backing plates and calipers for 80 bucks (junkyard off a 2g talon, i think i got lucky though), then got new disks, and pads, and was good to go. i think it was 150 total.

on the intake, do not get a no name ebay one. i did that, and after 1 year both pounting tabs had broken off, and the couplers were rotting. i just got a nice (used) AEM one for cheap, and while it looks pretty darn close, you can FEEL that the metal is of a higher grade. it seem that is will just last longer.

and for the sub: talk to KEN, he can design you a perfect box, that will leave the most interior space, and still look good.

Haha thanks!

And Scarr, I'm alrady set on the tube. The measurements are literally PERFECT for my trunk, and I've already wired the remote.

And for the intake, I was going for a new K&N.

I'm glad that's your girlfriend... as I started scrolling through the pics, I was REALLY hoping it wasn't you doing a handstand on the back of your car.
