The e-brake on these cars is a drum inside the rear rotors, so if you can feel the caliper is sticking then it's not the e-brake.

You can get more travel out of a longer spring before getting coil bind, but that assumes the damper has enough travel for that to be an issue with the shorter spring. On the KW/RCE bodies a 6"...

Removing the secondary cat won't effect the ECU at all, the O2 sensors are both ahead of the front pipe (before and after the primary cat in the header).

The TB in isolation flows more air. My whole point was that if there's something else downstream that is still more restrictive then the TB won't be flowing more air overall.
