RE: Upgrading everything else

Given the added power you've got, I'd certainly upgrade the tires - and struts
when the time comes. I've got 215 60HR14 Yokohama AVS U+4 on my stock 14" rims
('85 5000S) - so you should be able to get at least 215 60 15's on your car.
Most places will try the tires on for fit for you, just check for clearance
between the front tires and the struts. I've got about 1/2" clearance but I
don't know what the offset difference is on the 15" rim.

For struts - I've heard that Bilstein is the best, but they are very pricey. I
settled for a set of KYB's for about 1/3 the price. They're better than stock-
but I've only got 110hp to push me through the turns...

Good Luck-
