And you will! I have LT Headers and i'm not lowered and my headers scrap those Monster sized Speed bumps (only let it happen once). Unless you plane on racing on a road course, i really see no need for it. I got the lowered look by adding a Razzi body kit. Good luck on whatever you decide to do.

PS: The scoop is definately a good choice....not much cutting required. As someone else said, don't forget to get the Washer Bottle relocation kit.

Did the 22"s raise the car from stock? If so, then dropping it an inch wont be so bad.
Coil overs are more expensive, but they allow you to set the height you want.

I'd also recommend a Vmax ported throttle body. Not much HP gain, if any, but fabulous throttle response. Big difference over stock. Simple bolt-on mod that can be done in minutes.

JMHO...but whatever you decide to do, keep enjoying that ride!
I was thinking about that ported throttle body. Should I order a new throttle body and send in mine?

Same here. My headers scrape a little sometimes since they are lower. Might think about the scoop since you guys are saying its not that bad

It's about the same because I increased the rim size and decreased the tire size so it's pretty much the same.

I ordered mine from Jannetty with an additional core charge that was refunded promptly when I returned my original throttle body after installing the ported one they sent. Tracy from RX (SC2150 on the forum here) manufactures the the Vmax ones and sells them direct also. You can keep your original one if you like, but you will pay a few hundred dollars more for the mod, and to have a spare throttle body in your possession.
