    Finally the guy pick up the Black Mr2 now I have money to spend. Now I'm back to one. I'm in the process painting my red one. Then adding a links ECU I will tune each Cylinder with sensors on each exhaust outlet. Only wanting 220 to 250 rwkw. I will only get to 250rwkw with e85 at 16psi max, at a guess. So for the time being the goal will be 220 rwkw on 98 ron.

    I'm looking for best value coil-over set for the track with rebound and dampening adjustments for a sw20? What spring weight is best for front and back?

    Be prepared to spend north of $4k on a suspension setup, if you insist on having all that adjustment.
     
    Spring rates are a 'horses for courses' item - there is no 'ideal'.  Learn to drive the car with what it currently has, work out what you do/don't like about it, then adjust from there.

    What's your definition of value? Price? Performance?

    Give Supashock a call. They have all the measurements from my car so should be able to offer you a package already tuned for your car.

    I already have a new set of HR series HSD coil-overs was think of selling these and buying a better set for improving track times.

    Got prices on this setup and I had a heart attack. Try $10000 to $13000. That's not in the budget.

    Mine were $5-$6K from memory. I got the basic race package.

    I might invest in the Supashock Tarmac setup like yours when I finish restoring the car and I have enough money left. The HSD MONOPRO MONOTUBE COILOVERS will have to do for now.

    I have experienced a significant improvement to my lap times due to these coilovers - i.e. they have delivered value

    Did some work on it to just checked panel alignments.

     
    Had some red paint left from an other job. Just did one coat to check for straightness and no defects. Will get more paint the right colour red and blend it to together.


    Ran out of paint. Just checking body alignments.
