What suspension for a 156 semi track day car

A close friend who has a 1999 2.5 V6 has decided he'd like to turn it into a semi track day car. I semi because he wants to be able to use it on the road as well without it taking his teeth out.

And I thought since this is the place were the experts hang out could some kind soul give me a bit of guidence on this.

It's a standard car at the moment with 17" wheels that he wants to keep on the car.

Thanks in advance.

A popular choice for road and track days has always been the Eibach ProKit springs & dampers.
If you go any further than that it will compromise its usability on the road.

Zender 156 V6

Depends also how much he wants to spend. Could look at Eibach Anti Roll bars which would reduce the body roll without destroying the ride or even GTA Anti Roll bars

The V6 is heavy so you'll need quite a bit of suspension work to keep it under control. Q2 diff also

Maybe some KW coilovers, either V2s or V3s. These are over a grand though, plus fitting.
