HybridGT's Black Stealth GT

EDIT: Delivery ETA is currently 29 February - 4 March 2016. About time, after waiting over a year!!!

Ok so before I start, I'm gonna mention here that I am currently GT-less, until sometime in November (which is when delivery happens). I suppose nows a good a time as any, as there isn't too long to go (about 3 months). FYI, I ordered the car in January this year! Imagine that for a wait! Haha...

I do however have an extensive (or semi-extensive, based on some of you other crazy modders lol) part list. Some things are for sure, others...

Open to suggestions of course. Key point to note, I won't be supercharging - ever. Pretty sure lol. Won't be tracking the car, even if I do, probably once or twice a year max. Mainly street driving, generally good roads everywhere. I work at home, so technically don't even need a car... this is more just a car I've always wanted

Total mod budget US$7,000 - 8,000 inclusive of postage () to Australia. Will be ordering prior to delivery of the car, again call me crazy. Just figured I'll do almost everything I want early and not constantly tinker with it like my current car.

What I have come up with so far:

For sure
ARH H-pipe catback
MGW Shifter
Steeda IRS stuff
Steeda Clutch line
Steeda Trans Bushing
Steeda Sway Bars and Billets
Bob's Ultimate Oil Separator
Steeda Strut
Steeda OR JLT Intake and NGauge (which I'll only put in after a couple 1000km's. Sorry, we don't have miles here lol )
19/20" wheels (undecided. not forged) and Michelin PSS

Contemplating
ARH catted headers
Air Lift Digital Kit OR Coilovers OR Steeda progressive

Yes, I'm strongly aware the 2 items in the 'contemplating' list are basically about $5K alone lol

No particular reason for the Air Lift, I just think it looked cool and it would be nice to be able to raise/lower the ride to clear stuff without a worry. Also I love that the dampening is adjustable, which means I can opt for a comfortable long drive when needed. Is that worth the extra $ though? I don't know.

My budget is about fixed somewhat, can be stretched slightly more if needed. But I do have to allocate some for stuff like tint, insurance and paint maintenance etc.

Apart from that, I'm all ears to any opinions, suggestions etc.

Thanks for reading!

Didn't know JLT came with blue filters and custom colos too. Only reason I wanted the steeda initially, the filter and the design lol

But the JLT with hydrocarbon and blue filter is sick!
