    I envy you that you get to meet Kenny Tran, let us all know how it works out when you go over there and take some pics of the work being done if possible, I know I would like too see that.

    Like they say hard work pays off!

    yeah i would def go with the trd lsd b4 the flywheel. flywheel isnt a must as far as i know its going to help with freeing up some weight in the tranny thus letting you accelerate a little faster like a glorified lightweight crank pulley dont quote me on that not 100% sure but thats what i think : ) i didnt upgrade my engine mounts kenny told me that wasnt necessary as far as the brakes trd makesd a big brake kit but im going to go with the willwood kit. im going to bring my video camera and get as much as i can..

    Just like carboncrazy said, a lightweight flywheel will free up horsepower and obviously lightening the weight thus making it spin faster enabling you to accerlate faster.
