Correct, it does absolutely nothing for performance.
Thought process was really to see if I was able to accomplish something like this. No it's not gonna be done over night probably not even in a year but as a personal goal to do on my own with out paying a high end shop to do the work I see it possible. It's nothing to prove to any one but myself, because yes this has been done before not necessarily on a mx6, but other cars whether it's in someone's garage or they pay someone.
As far as speed/suspension stuff, never said I wasnt planning for that either. As far as money goes it to the looks I bet I have less then have half into that (minus rims) then most people do in to there paint jobs including the parts for the right hand drive.
It's more or less a personal goal nothing to prove to anyone but myself.
