Yes, slow down.... Suspension changes should be made slowly IMHO, with careful thought of what you're trying to achieve. Of all the parts you listed the only part that makes sense to me right now is...

Sure..... Good power can be had wihout headers. It's just not a max effort build, and of course you'll be leaving power on the table. I'm considering a build myself without headers. Albeit for...

PS2's look like a superior wet weather tire. However, I'm only concerned with overall steering response and dry weather performance (CA summer car). By the sounds of things the KD's will fit the...

Finest steering response - PS2's?

A good friend runs Michelin PS2's on his 97SS, and frankly I'm amazed as others have been at how precise and responsive this rubber is. I'm looking for the finest dry weather tire that will offer the...

Sure, it's another plus of SA's..... But only if stock springs are used. This should not be done if lowering springs are installed.

Well, i'm not sure what 9 second cars you are seeing without fully built suspensions. Again, a single digit car is no joke. Your M6 will need around 550rwhp (with a good curve) in a car on a diet...
