This is pretty much dead on. I had an 04 Z06 for 4 years and it is a great car but it will need a lot of little things to actually be reliable if you drive it hard.

Seating, cooling, and braking...

I expect that the 4.3 will require 8000 RPM and taller tires if they'll fit, like 245/45/17 or going to 18s. Dunno if they make those in A052 though.

I like the shorter gearing on mine but I'm not...

No clue on headers, but you'll feel the annoyance of stopping for fuel more often and with fewer stopping options if you go E85.

Any idea how much of that is spring/shock vs the bound up rear sway? In CS you can fix the bar, leaving the TRD bar "stock" up front and using whatever in the back.

Oh and, not that it'll have any chance at being competitive at all, but a 17+ 86 with TRD springs, bars, and wheels is now the best twin for Street class.

I sold my nearly perfect RX8 with 44k miles for $7500, I'd hunt for another one. The 86 is the closest thing I could find to that car, I loved it and should have kept it.
