Had the chance to snap a few photo's and wanted to share. Next week finishes up the Mods with Dinan Stage 2 suspension, Dinan 3.91 Rear Differential, Dinan underdrive pulley and Dinan CF Front Strut Brace. I believe I've scratched the Mod bug enough for now. I can't wait for the new suspension it should lower it around 1/2 inch which is enough for me. Let me know what you guys think.

:cheers:

Great mods...but I think you should have lowered it and put wheels on it before that hood ever went on.

Aftermarket Hoods are very aggresive mods, which can look great. But from those pictures, you have a relatively stock looking car (stock wheels and no drop) are big mods that make a big difference in the aggresive department.

I see you have plans for the Dinan suspension, but what about any wheels?

After the charcoal filter delete, RPI Scoops, block off plates and BMC filters I couldn't believe the difference in the throttle response. I was amazed, my butt-seat meter was off the charts!

No plans as of yet, haven't found any that really catches my eye and says, hell yea those would look sick. Have only had the car four months so far so it still early!

You better believe you'll see me, can't wait for the next one. Doing two days HPDE at VIR end of Feb, there still may be some spots available. I did the hood myself, was easier than I had anticipated. Guess I was used to the old style hoods that were really tough for adjusting.
