I had a third gen IROC and the seats were comfortable but not very supportive for cornering.
The fourth gen seats look and feel much better with better support in the seatback area.

2nd gen seats are a close bolt in by re-drilling mounting holes in the support rails. 4th gen will need special adaptors made. I hear 3rd and 4th gen seats are close for mounting?

I don't know about bolting in.

I've ordered a pair of Corbeau seats that will bolt in and they are around $350 each. http://www.upgrademotoring.com/index2.htm
They are the A-4 model.

This might sound stupid, but if I remember right, my stock '67's seats (and seating position) was the best that I ever sat in. And, I got a tilt wheel, too.

Of course, it's been years ago, and I'm bigger and FATTER now than I was when I was younger.

I haven't driven my car since '86 and '73 before that, but when I last got behind the wheel it was just as though the sucker was moulded to me. IMHO pdq67

I found my 67's to be pretty good but no lumbar support for my 50 year old back.

When I was autocrossing the car I had to cinch the lap belt down hard to keep me from falling out of the seat! The vinyl is slippery too, although I had a couple of tears in the upolstery that helped hold me in!

I finally put a cheap taylor plastic bucket in it for autocross and it was good but not safe as it's all plastic, and won't adjust or tilt forward.

I too added Corbeau seats to mine. I used the GTB seats and am very happy with them. Expensive though at around $1100 for the pair with mounting brackets. www.corbeau.com
