    Went the cheap route on tires once, never again. I also did a horribly bad job painting my calipers too, I left them on the car and one handed it with a piece of cardboard. Any appearance mods that you tackle yourself should always be done right the first time step by step, cutting corners gets expensive. My latest and greatest mistake is having a cam installed and a built up A4 without upgrading the rear end to something/anything stronger. So now I'm looking forward to a tax season 12 bolt

    ASA Cam, Built A4, 3500 Stall, LT's, ORY, Hooker CB, E Cut-out, Lid, Modified SSRA, , SFC's,UMI Tq Arm w/relo, Spohn LCA's, 3.73's, Free Mods, Dyno tuned by James @ SpeedShift Performance. Need more suspension mods!!!

    lol still don't understand why everybody hates slp. (is funny) i have slp loud mouth II and slp lid for about a year now and i love them both. Oh and the very rear slp shifter i think is one of the best shifter's. I just got it with a umi short stick i love it. I have stock, b&m, hurst, pro 5.0, and slp shifter's and i have to say i really like the slp shifter. (yes i collect them lol)

    the worst mod i done to my car (and is not really that bad) is my flow-tec X pipe witch i got from speed inc for 120. Is a great x pipe is just my ground clearance sucks but i think that was the muffler shops fault and not so much the X pipe. If your going with a X pipe or true duels get ready to lose some ground clearance and forget about lowering your car

    Their parts suck compared to other stuff out there.
    Their customer service sucks.
    Their prices suck.
    Their power gain claims are bullshit.

    Innovate LC-1 wideband pisses me off every time I open my cutout or go to the track. Just tried their "recommended fix" this evening so we'll see if it works properly now.

    Yeah, mine was sagged so much everytime it hit a hump the weight on my drive shaft would hit my drive shaft loop. Right now I am running z28 springs with a coil cut off in the rear until I get a new set of springs.

    A cut out, I loved the sound but I hated my ground clearance and the factthat it wasn't electric it's now gone and I'm back to my normal exhaust which I absolutely love! The pro kit was bad with stock shocks but I like it now with the bilstein shocks, I actually love the way my car rides.

    Tru-Trac carrier - for the 10 bolt. Anything spent on the stock rear is a waste. Unless it's spent to remove it

    Used parts...this 9" is great and hold the power like nothing else, but I'll be breaking it open for a third time to replace these damn leaks.

    Not sure if I'm doing a drag set up or not yet, if I don't I will definitly be getting Strano.
