Default Two questions

please forgive me if this is a repeat question, i have researched the previous threads and didnt find the exact answers i was looking for or they were from years ago, first question: 2001 WS6 T/A, running american racing torgue thrust type rims, 275/40R17 in front, 315/35R17 in back, will brembo's big brake GT set work on my car? it appears the spokes will clear but not sure about inside clearance, Second question: In the state of CA is there anything i can do to loosen up some HP? is super/turbo charging my only option? are engine swaps to newer GM motors even legal? thank for any info, i have taken a near 10 year hiatus from F-bodies and now i have a little more funds to work with, thanks again!

You can get away with an engine swap if its registered as a replacement. I had zero issues doing that. Your ONLY smog legal turbo option is rear mount turbo, which includes its own set of complications. With a supercharger, I am not sure which ones are 50 state legal, I guess you could Google it. Welcome back to the world of f bodies!
