sunnys25,

I didn't really have a chance to check it out yet. On the drive home and after the ECU reset it seemed that all was much the same except it reved a little faster. This was helped by the lightened pulleys I'm sure. I have a chance to do a little "spirited" :cool: driving today and should be able to report a little better then. Also, at WOT, there is a nice growl from under the hood.

Quick review: I like the mods. The car seens to be faster and pull to the redline more smoothly. Sway bar has a definte impact on handleing(sp). I'm going to have to get used to it. I am very happy I got the mods.


Long Review:

Okay, I've scared myself. After having the above modifications done I went for a "SPIRITED" drive. It kind of went like this:

Interstate, boring but a nice chance to see if I had any acceleration issues. Seemed a little faster sounded a lot louder than before at WOT. Nice sucking rumble at WOT. Can't imagine can't imagine living with a Cobb Intake...Not at my age.

Two lane highways. First one had to much traffic. Passed a Big Assed Pickup as soon as I hit the second one. The Suby was in its element. 45mph Speed Limit some turns posted at 15mph. With the new swaybar everything felt great even on RE 92s. In 10 miles, the road had well over a hundred and fifty turns of varying severetiy, with as many elevation changes. More than once I thought that my speed, although ALWAYS within the speed limit :rolleyes: , might be a little quick:)

Gravel Roads. Holy Fu&^%$ng Sh#t!. It had been a long time since I tried to drive fast on these. To top it off, the first one I hit was while driving on a paved road that decided to go gravel as it crested a hill. The road fell away with a little turn and before I knew it, i was sideways one way then the other. The rear end seemed very light. I was lucky the road was wide and no one was coming at me. What a rush! I slowed down and calmed down and was able to successfully do a few decent turns, with controlled slides. The few times I looked at my speedo I was going a lot fast than I thought.

I like the mods and I like the Suby even more!
