    Decided to keep a record of changes, upgrades and " improvements " that I will be making,and giving my personal, unsolicited observations.
    First up was replacing the Pirelli P Zero tires with Hancook Ventus V12s. After 2 weeks of driving I have found them to be much quieter and smoother, with no noticeable drop off in handling.
    Next was a Steeda clutch spring kit, which I think is a must upgrade, clutch has a whole new feel to it, for the better !
    Last was an MGW shifter with a new ball, this is an awesome but slightly pricey piece but well worth the money. I thought the stock shifter was very sloppy and sometimes had difficulty even when " granny shifting ). Now shifts are tight and precise! IMG_0085.jpg IMG_0082.jpg IMG_0084.jpg

    Well I know I will get a lot of boos and thumbs down on this one but I replaced the SVE axle back and installed stock cat back system. A little louder than stock with the resonator gone and the x-pipe in its place. Even though the SVE was quitter than Roush it was still noisier than I could deal with, to much drone in sixth gear. I lost my hearing in one ear many years ago so some time my one good ear gets overwhelmed processing loud sounds. Oh well it's definitely quiet now!

    On another note I installed H&R lowering springs and am very happy with the results. The car's stance just looks right now, and it rides well. I think next upgrade may be Bilstein's !
