sounds like you're on the right track, keep up with those goals. Front H brace is the best investment so far for me, I had one on my old car as well... Love love love it.

passwordjdm 3-point front strut and passwordjdm rear strut are very good choices. solid bars with no pivots points. along with the rear lower tie bar. and like blahman said, an h brace is nice too.

another thing u might want to look at is the EM Racing trunk floor bar (may be for bling but the more bars, the stiffer ur chassis is). also an oem si/gsr rear sway bar (12 or 13mm). if u go bigger than 12 or 13, ull want to consider an ASR subframe reinforcement brace for the bigger bars have been known to tear out the subframe with is no good.

actually... on my old car I had every single bar you could buy, I had my suspension completly done and build, the last thing I added was a sway bar, and man did the over steer come, I personally wouldn't recommend a huge sway bar with other bars, imo the H brace is all you need to prevent much of the sway. The body needs to sway a tiny bit atleast to make a good turn.

Its not a game of how much money and mods you can have on your car, its a game to get it how you like it and still have it ready to compete and still be a strong competitor. You don't see the pro's having all the mods you could buy. I don't know if I got out what I'm trying to say clearly, but I hope you know what I mean.

I guess I'm saying you don't want a car that the track will over power, you want a car that the track will be over powered by.

you can get the megan h brace on ebay for like 20 bucks, i'm not sure it has the megan name, but its the same thing.

Edit: Oh yea, if you plan to turbo the car, don't get fog lights, you'll prob end up having to remove them anyways.
