    No idea where you are,but here in Edmonton we meet last sunday of every month at Volvo of edmonton...free lunch too.
    Dont know how your car is setup,but if you are going to put "350hp" through it, you are definately going to need some suspension improvements...in no particular order here,but I'd start with poly bushings LCA's,and the WHOLE rear suspension,next would be better shocks/struts,and definately look at an LSD/trutrac...cause unless you tubbed the rear/modified rear quarters,your gonna be limited in tire size at the back.If your lowering...get adjustable torque rods/panhard (or make them) allows you to centre you Diff,and you should think about coilovers/camber plates in front....these are nose heavy cars,and they really chew up front tires if driven agressively... and , Yes,I am familiar with all of the above
