So my dad tossed me a Street Rodder and said "make a wish list". Now when my dad says something like that... well, come to think of it, he has not said that for about 6 or 7 years haha, but when he does say it, he has come across a little extra money and wants to do something nice for my brother or I. Lucky right :veryhappy: it's always nice to get a new shifter or pedals . . . you know, something small.

But as I was flipping the pages and I keep seeing all around big disk brake up grade kits for Ford and GM products and nice new independent suspension packages that look just awesome. But could you work any of these in to the GT simply? Like say a Chevelle, Camaro or Nova brake kit be fitted to the GT? Are there any GM US parts that can be used?

Sorry if this is kind of a newbie new question :sad6:

I do know any bolt on suspension kit. You can custom make one.
Pictures shows Opel Manta racing front suspension.

pure porn should be banned
and not easy to fit in a gt



i think theres more BMW stuff that will fit an Opel than anything from a US GM product

I have seen his thread looks real good, but now I have to ask how much HP can the Opel hold? I am looking for 230-270hp... could the stock rear end hold that? If it cant then I need to find a one that can hold it.

This thread has departed from the intent of the GT Forum (which is reserved to address model-specific questions such as "how many GT's were built?"), so I have moved it to the Performance Forum. There are sub-Forums relating to suspension, braking and engine upgrades, and before you take too much of our member's time asking questions that have been answered already, I suggest that you take a bit of your own time to read, and search, for some of your answers.

Thanks for moving it to its proper place, sometime I like to think out loud (or type) and i can sometimes drift of topic. So every now and then when I do a noob thing feel free to :slap:
