Yup, its still a work in progress so expect more things to be added as time goes on (and as we get a chance to try them out).

please take off Tein S tech springs from cars that are daily drivers, will kill shocks/struts very quickly.

Fluids option:
AMSOIL Motor Oil, Tranny - Oil Doc for purchasing
Mitsudiaqueen - Transfercase, Front diff, Rear Diff = mitsubishiparts.net price$45shipped i think?

Oil Catch can:

Shifter - Greddy Shift knob = $30-35

Motor Mounts: Powerflex = Contact GSC or Stikiller.com

I'll add more when I have time

My S.Techs have over 25k daily-driven miles on the stock IX KYB shocks and have had zero issues; even scored an auto-x trophy this summer.

The best shift knobs for any car IMO are the Team Voodoo shift knobs, they are counter-sunk, and they sit lower than the stock shift knob.

I know the S2000 guys love the VooDoo knobs too; I've never personally felt one though.

Definitely a worthy product to get if you ask me. Both Scheides and I, along with pretty much all our local friends, are running them with great results. I powder coated mine black to be extra sleek
