    A breakdown of my planned C63 mods, opinions welcome

    Click here to enlarge


    With the motor I am going for the Weistec Stage 2 kit. I am still considering doing the heads but have not decided on it yet. For a exhaust system I am probably going to go with the Innotech system with the valves to try keep the car quieter at certain times. My concern is that their branches are not true LTH and the collector is only 2.75inches. Dont really know what kind of peak power loss this will cause?
    The outside of the car will get the Renntech rear arches only. I am planning to go with the Forgestar F14 wheels in piano black. 11X18 in the back and 19's in the front. This should sort the traction out quite a bit.
    In regard to the suspension the car has the P30 Performance pack so am going to stay stock for now. I would like to get a Bilstein Kit eventually that has the various stages of ride to try make the daily driving more comfortable.
    Any comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

    Maybe this was a typo...but you're planning on running 19's up front and 18's out back ???

    Yeah, I think that's what he meant. Probably because the smaller rim diameter will allow for a thicker sidewall and better traction, similar to people putting on fat drag radials on a small rim

    Yip, going to run MT 305 18 in the back. Fronts are 19 for cosmetic reasons.

    cosmetic reasons? The smaller front wheels are going to look funny in my opinion. Go either 18 all the way around or better yet go 19 all the way around and then get a set of 17 rears with DRs for drag racing if that's your forte.

    The fronts are the larger 19's. Do you mean smaller as in narrower?
    I am not sure what 17's would fit in the back for the DR's hence the 18 in the rear. Many cars have staggered sized wheels and I do not really think having a rear wheel a inch smaller will look wierd.
    JRCART do you think I will manage to run a 60-130 in the low 6's once I am done? I am asking because I do not want the car to be slower than my 35 hehe.

    They will fit if you have them made with the proper offset. I have a set of 16's and 17's for my BS that fit fine.

    As for the front I meant what I typed, if you are running different diameter wheels the smaller ones should always be on the front.

    Damn then it will look a little dragster hehe. Will email the vendors and see who can be confident enough to ship wheels overseas that will fit. 17's would be great then I can go 19's all round for streets.

    CCW built my latest set of drag wheels, they will build you what you need in the offset you need.
