I have striven to make it better than stock without making it a completely different car. In effect I want it to ampify its strengths and hids its weaknesses wihthout drastic measures, it is my daily driver!

It can handle family duty, but it can also tear up the back roads on the weekends. Future plans would be more exhaust work if I can keep it quite. Camber adjustable ball joints and 2 way adjustable shocks would be nice as well.

Thanks for the Vote-up and comments on my '94 GT. You've got a great looking MazdaSPEED 6... sounds like it runs well too! And, you're daughter would be lucky to drive it (in a few years)!

Definitely go with the SPC ball joints. I have the same spring setup as you along with Bilstein HDs and the car really digs in with the extra negative camber up front. Wheels look great by the way!
