I dyno'ed it after installing plugs, coils, and fuel filter made no difference in power but it did run smoother. The new MAF and airbox made the improvement.

tom, if u need parts, lmk. i have literally the whole car. most of it gone.
if you want full leather interior. i got it for this car too.
btw RS wheel should work on narrow car, it will stick out but works.
we tried it. and the guy is fast with it.

I thought the RS rears were the same but with spacers for the wider body?

I believe the RS rear wheels have more aggressive offsets compared to NB version.

Absolutely not. I would never sell anyone bent parts. The thrust arms you got were spares from my previous car.

RS rear wheels are 51mm offset. NB wheel's are 68mm. That would be equivalent to using 17mm spacers on NB wheels(see photo in post #15). I am predicting about 1.5 inch of rear suspension compression travel with the stock shocks and springs so even if there's no contact its too close for comfort for me for track use.
