You don't want to go true duals if that is what you're thinking. The pipes need to come together to help the engine breath. If you do true duals, you'll need a H pipe joining the two sides.
Headers, and good ones. Tim at Raptor makes a set for the 3.0R in different varieties. Header pipes from the Gen 2 3.0 WILL NOT WORK. They have to be made specifically for the 3.0R heads. Porting is different. After the headers, get a tune. I'd recommend XTreme Racing Tuning, he's done a lot of R engines, both NA and boosted.
The 235/60/16 is a shorter tire. The speedo will be off a little. If you are wanting to go with a higher tire to increase the clearance a little, then go with 215/60 or a little bigger 205/60 and 205/55. Did you use the tire calculator on Tire Rack?
I was wondering if 235/60/16's will fit on my 02 beaner without issues. I will be replacing the entire suspension including springs with stock kyb. any protips while I'm in there?
I plan on taking all the new components to a tire place for assembly so I wont have to mess with spring compressors. good idea? is it a good idea to replace the ball joints as long as I'm in there? other things? as to the 235 question, I've scoured the forums and cant find a definitive answer. I'm buying new wheels and tires from tirerack.
