Sorry for this long post but im needing of information. I bought an EL about 1 year ago its a February Model Hybrid engine with stock everything. its done 130,000k now and i was just curious as to what i can get out of this car.

Future Mods include.

Full intake mods
JMM Dev 5 Kit ( Race series Head and Extractors)
Koni adjustables and King Super Lows
18" Rims not sure of brand or type yet
DBA slotted rotors and 4 Pot Caliper pistons (would like some pricing or info on the calipers?? where to go and what brand??)
Full whiteline Sway Bars +extras (the small suspension things)
Full Nolathane bushes Kit.
Big Stereo
Interior decked out.

What would be a recomended for a Transmission and Diff?? Its a BTR 4 Speed, im thinking a Manual or Hi-Stall with full transmission rebuild.

Thanks for any info you could give me.

P.S. the Dev 5 kit is rated at 170KW, if i get full engine managment can i increase the 170KW with bottom END Improvement and still have a good running car??

If your looking at 4 pot calipers, the only company who does them is Cebco. BUT you have to use the 330mm rotors which comes with a hefty tag.
$2500 per end (pads, lines, discs, caliper etc.)
It should be drivable with what you intend. Mark154 has this done to his minus an A/M Ecu, but in a manual and he only whinges about the heavy clutch :P jjkes dude.
good luck.
