Re: need help with mod advice, really appreciated
Abdullah-thanks for your post.
This is like 6 different questions all rolled into one dialog. Exhaust would be one of the easiest modifications you can do your self. The suspension is more complicated, especially the rear suspension. I have Ohlin coilovers and think they work very well. They deffinately are a upgrade from the R springs you were mentioning above. Long tube cat headers from Soul would be a great addition or Cargraphic Headers, which ever one you can easily import would work.
As far as deep sump oil protection goes, LN makes an excellant deep sump with a windage plate to keep the oil from sloshing up the sides of the sump in long high g corners causing oil starvation and scarring to #6 rod bearing. If you do not drive your car in a manor that would require the deep sump, no high G turns, then you can spend your modification money on other items that will bring you joy and satisfaction from your Cayman.
One modification that you could do to prevent roadside failure is a Numeric steel shifter cable install. The OEM cables could break without any notification, leaving you stranded. So as an insurance for this not happening to you, is to have these cables installed on your car. I would also add that Numeric short shifter is an excellant shifter. You can do rolling downshifts into first gear, even at 20 mph. This shifter system really transforms the manual transmission into a form of art, either up shifting or down shifting. A Numeric rubber insulation hose is also available and reduces the NVH tranmission whine through the steel cables to a non event.
Hope this message helps.
