Engine mounts can be found fairly cheap from our sponsors, so I'd suggest buying from them. No point in buying used mounts when new ones aren't very expensive.

Throttle body spacers are useless, atleast for our cars.

Chips for a 97 Z24 do not exist. The actual computer chip that you would replace with a performance chip (in older cars), simply isnt found in a '95+ vehicle.

Congrats on not putting an "s" on the end of header though, most people screw that one up. Goodluck with finding items 1-3, but I just figured I should let you know 4-5 are a waste of money.

For the control arms, You might be better off to find a set of GA control arms in the classifieds. Much better than stock.

Header is up to you, There are a few different brands.

95 manual pcms can be chipped. 95 auto pcms cannot. (We are not talking an ebay chip either. Those don't work period.) 96 is s.o.l.. And 97+ has HPT

ok well thats good to know. Just trying to get opinions on what way to di a n/a build with mild bolt ons. So instead of chipping the ecu can u get it reprogramed with a computer to tune it cuz a guy i met said he tuned sunfire gt and worked??. What mods would give u a good power gain for the best buck with out turboing it.

Intake and exhaust, you will need HPTuners to modify the stock pcm, quite a bit of power can be found in a custom tune, even N/A.

Hp tuners is a software program, not a company. It costs roughly a @!#$ ton, and it cannot remove the governor. I doubt you could in any way justify needing the governor removed anyway.... Now enjoy the lack of help you will get because you are clearly a street racing moron...

It's not a governor anyway it's a speed limiter.

I've got a used header, $100 and it's yours. RK Sport 4-1. Come get it, I've had it way too damn long.



14.330 @ 96.37mph

If you're trapping past the limiter in the 1/4, then you will get help to remove the governor, but since it is obvious you are not even close to touching that much mph, I nor more than likely anyone else will help you with removing it.

Also D.Simoes, HPTuners is not that costly if you're serious about tuning... also it CAN remove the governor, myself plus many others have done it.

I know this, I own hptuners, I was just trying to discourage the op from asking us to remove it for him. Followed by us explaining why its unsafe, and why he would have to pay us $100, yadda yadda.... But techinicaly it doesn't remove the governor, so I may have exagerated the price, but the rest was truth (although it was intentionaly misleading).

Discouraging someone that is lost as much as he is, kind of a useless cause

Governor is there for YOUR safety but in thise case especially, others on the road as well, there is no reason to do those speeds on the street, we all break the law/speed so I cannot say I don't because I know I do, but I know the consequences of doing so if I get caught and I am the one to blame for doing so, I have no one else to blame, no one showed me how to remove the safety devices from my car, so if someone helped you remove yours, they could be (and would be if you were smart and had a good lawyer) liable if you were to be in an accident at a said speed over what the governor is set for (108mph?). I cannot explain it any better than that, this is the reason why someone cannot help you remove it, even by telling you, we are helping.

Now lets say you were trapping over 108 in the 1/4 at the track, well then I would expect you to realize what it would take to remove it anyway, you wouldn't need to ask.

Don't take it personally, its just not something people here like talking about for many reasons. Sorry about the harsh comment earlier, you seem like a decent guy. Good luck finding those other parts.
