When I did the swap wheels, tires, brakes, and suspension was all done at the same time. Anyone who thinks they can get away with just an engine swap and be able to run it well at the track is kidding themselves.
That's what you get with a 20 year old on a budget wrenching in his parent's garage. The car was slammed with stock wheels. I didn't know the guy that well and I didn't really want to sit in his car again after that ride.
