Only the 'important' ones (non cosmetic):

MM Camber Plates: To increase negative camber for better handling into corners
AirAid CAI: Slightly wider power band in high RPM's.
FRPP Diff Cover: Has integrated drain plug, adjustable supports on bearing caps.
Turkey Baster: Manage potential overflow of rear diff fluid. Also switch to Redline fluid for same reason.
AeroForce Gauge: Ability to monitor multiple engine parameters in real time (primarily temps)
Corbeau Harness Bar: For 4 pt. Schroth harness system
Harnesses: New set of 2" (for Hans device compatability) 4 pt. Schroth harnesses, expandable to 6 pt.
Tires: Set of Conti Extreme Contact DW tires for wet track conditions
JLT Oil Catchers: Keeps some dirty oil from being recycled back into engine.
Redline Water Wetter: Helps manage engine temps.
Redline MTL: Increased protection for gearbox, smoother shifts (reportedly, I'll see at next event).
Fire Extinguisher: SO I'll never have to use it ;D
Brakes: Pagid pads and Castrol SRF fluid - so the damn thing can stop (vs. stock pads)
Factory: All LS options installed (Air Splitter, Brake cooling lines, Tranny Cooler)
Boss 302S Front Grille (modified): Provides more air to radiator for better engine cooling capabilities

Aeroforce Gauge and oil temp sensor - Monitor water and oil temps as well as read and clear DTCs
LS wing - downforce
Corsa Extremes - weight reduction, increased hp and better sound :D
Trans scoop - cool the tranny during track use
brake cooling hoses - avoid boiling the brakes or pad fade
Goodridge SS Lines - firmer brake pedal and responsiveness
DBA 5000/4000 rotors - weight reduction, increased safety and track durability
MM c/c plates - improved turn-in and increased track tire longevity
JLT Oil Separator - keep oil out of the intake
MM 4pt roll bar - to allow safe usage of harnesses, save my neck, hopefully never need it (may improve chassis rigidity)
Sparco race seat, Crow harnesses, fire extinguisher and HANS device - increased safety
Tiger Racing hood - increase downforce (reduce lift), improve cooling
302S grille - improve cooling
302S radiator - improve cooling
302S air-to-oil cooler - improve cooling
World Challenge front splitter - increase downforce

You still have me beat! And I remind the Mrs. every day that the 'guy out west' is crazier than I am. ;D

I spoke to someone today that is doing some very interesting things with the Boss suspension. Let's just say it's what the guys who race a 302S are doing. If I go that route you'll want to follow, and then we'll both be living alone somewhere... ;D

If the damn weather would break I could just drive and I wouldn't have time to think about all these damn mods ! :eek:

Forgot the ARP wheel studs and Roush mufflers on my mod list!

Gary is the mod king so far! When you gonna get that 302S wing? :)
Ugh, that'd be cheap compared to Pete's suggestion :eek: My head is spinning. Yes we need tracks to open so I can start wasting money on pads, rotors and tires. Oh yea, next Friday ;D
