What kind of lift kit is made for our cars? I have heard of the TRD lowering springs but haven't heard of a lift kit......
Looks great Handling ??? You likely have a smoother/softer ride but when it comes to hard cornering you probably roll a bit more. I really like the factory 18" for summer and we ride on 16" steelies for winter. Keep the mods comingrusski1990 wrote: installed 205 55 16 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires. they look and handle amazing
Nice! Any pics? I might have to try this on my twin boy's new 09 GT for that price.russki1990 wrote:the intake got installed, and it fits nice. it was a cheap way to get some cool sounds from the engine.
the engine mount gives off a little of vibration at idle but other then that not really noticeable. ( i do need to redo the filling due to me not waiting long enough for the polyurethane to dry)JetBlack wrote:Looks beautifully minimalist, Hows the super strengthened engine mounts feeling?
I do get quite a lot of head soak during summer. i noticed the power start to fall off after driving in traffic.Misanthrope wrote:Thinking about it myself. But I may buy some aftermarket 18''s with the offset built in. It seems like matrix owners do more mods than vibe owners. You ever check out their forums?
Like the mods BTW.
You got the last short throw shift "kit". Can't find it anywhere but did find a true metal short throw shifter for like 160.00.
Found and ordered the same SRI you did. Keep in mind that CAI's get better and more consistent gains. There's a thread somewhere with links to an RSX dyno test with results for various setups. Like you, I'm doing it mostly for sound and a little "(removed) dyno" tweak. Plan in wrapping mine with heatwrap to minimize heat soak.
Your car looks cool. I'm sticking with 18" wheels myself though. Just has a better wheelwell ratio to my eyes.
