I wish I could drive mine. The biggest setback for me is that the car is in Delaware and I am not, so I have to work on it on the weekends. No coming home and wrenching on it after work.

That sucks man !!! I couldnt stand that!!
Got done driving it!! Runs pretty good, but the coilover springs I ordered are WAYYYYY to soft. Even on the shocks full stiff it will eventually rub the fenders on hard accell.... She was pretty rich WOT (10.2) so I cruised back home and made some adjustments, as well as dropped the oil. Putting in fresh oil and tune, gunna order some 225# rear springs, (had 150#). Its running 40Lbs of oil pressure @ idle, 53lbs @ cruising rpm, and 70lbs WOT so all in all pretty good! Im stoked!!

Ya I have a 12" spring VS I think the Gforce kits are 10"? But I think I may still go with the 225# springs! Hows the ride with yours??

I got it leaned up some and HOLY SHIT it pulls hard no matter what rpm its at. The old setup pulled hard after 4,000 but this thing doesnt care were it is in the RPM range it will pull it. I am LOVING IT!!!

Got a race against a bolton 350Z friday and a 60 trim bolton SRT4 neon so good week

As long as I have my dampening in a softer to medium setting, they are street friendly for me. I do some corner carving and DD mine.

Hell ya, wish there were more around! I did my first 1-2-3 WOT pull banging gears earlier and about put it in the ditch on the 2-3, ass end went way wide on me. This sumbitch pulls so much harder than before, and im on stock gears vs it had 3:91`s before! Im madly in love!!!! Accept that damn rasp in the exhaust, that was NOT there before and it sounds HORRIBLE!

The rasp you talking about that truck-ish popping right at the end of each gear starting at :59 in the video?

Yes, that horendous sound it is making :/

PS, if you go the coilover route DO NOT get 150# springs. Atleast get 200#. Ill be stepping up to 225# springs

LOL I saw that when reading the posts. I will keep that in mind. I have a feeling you will install and drive on the 225#'s before I even start aquiring parts so you can give a review/advice on them.



Off topic, but you don't happen to have a stock 04 catback laying around do you??

Try switching to an X-pipe and see if that helps any. 3" all the way back? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that good for turbo/supercharger applications, but bad for N/A because of the back pressure loss?

Supercharged Applications dont pickup much from 3" exhaust vs 2.5" either.. at least with 364cu in.. theres not much on an increase..

As for back pressure loss Most of it changes the peak torque curve on the down (How Much or where it will peak)... Muffler selection can make a difference as well
