yah got some small plans in the immediate future, the factory suspensions sucks!!! we have had our shocks replaced 4 times!!!! under warranty that is, but that fine

But on the short list

19x9.5 dished rims
rolled fenders
Tein electronically adjustable coilovers(a bitch to install but ride quality well worth it, nice part is, we will be to gain +.5" lift for winter :P
Cobb AP stage 2
Ultimate Racing UIC and LIC piping
Ultimate Racing test pipe
UR downpipe
UR catback exhaust(i guess I could just go full turboback exhaust instead)
new blowoff valve
and a boost pill
tint all around minus front winshield
lip spoiler on the trunk versus the giant wing
big brake kit


should make for one hell of a fun car for daily driving and look great while doing it

Yea some Variations of the OEM stuff never is. Haha I suppose thats why the aftermarket sector even exists.

I'll leave my suspension as is for now. Only rubbed snow once or twice last winter, plus I've got a whole bunch of under carriage protective plastic. I dont think it can take too much abuse but should be strong enough to keep leveling snow banks

So, my initial reaction towards the Agency pulley. I'm loving it. Everything feels more spirited throught the drivetrain, the dropping in power band is the best part. The car has enough power now I can take off from the absolute tiniest bit of gas so damn near impossible to stall.

Worth the $$.

I'm going to put the lightweight flywheel idea on the bench for now. While it would be a nice freed power boost, I've found there are some side-effects/ disadvantages that I want to avoid in a daily driver-esk type vehicle. Maybe a mid-weight flywheel one day, who knows. But for now I don't have any desire to drop the transmission and deal with it.

Just searched up this ATI super damper crank pulley you mentioned. I'm not so sure it solves the problem I'm refering too.

People are reporting rapid acceleration and deceleration due too the lighter 9~ Ibs lightweight over the 17~ Ibs stock flywheel. Making it annoyingly super touchy. I think that would bother the piss out of me. The mid-weight version which is 12~ Ibs supposedly people are finding it much more reasonable for daily driving.
