Hey man looks mad. U in aus? I know a guy with a 2J putting 400hp atw. Big time cooling issues and not much clearance. I'm probably leaning towards a N/A ported 13b for mine. I'll post pics soon of the rear end. Haven't had it out last few weekends due to crap weather. Shocks are only little short ones. Pretty sure they are to fit older model holdens - toranas etc. If i can get a model number will let u know.

Goodluck finding coilovers for a w114 but with bags your car can sit lower than the bump stops and at the lowest point my front tyres are up against metal so the car won't roll at the lowest setting at the front.

Love it man. My 240D is static slammed and it rides surprisingly well, but Im thinking about bag because i drag skidplate and floorpan almost every time I drive it somewhere with odd bumps/etc.

Only opinion I have is shoulda kept the bundts on there....looked so damned clean ....those wheels look like donk wheels to me.....Get on stanceworks.com. wed love to see this thing on there.
