Changes the rotational speed of the accessories, and slow them down to a minimal speed required, freeing up power that the engine already makes that is eaten up by accessories like the alternator and power steering.

Excellent product, the shift engagement is solid.
The install was straight forward using the 'MGW' video tutorial and the 'Planet Lsx' "How to" guide;

Yes, you will feel the difference!
Acceleration is noticeably improved, with most gains coming in low-end torque.
There is absolutely no difference in noise output or drivability of the car.
All accessories work just as well as before.

Im liking everything you've done to this car everything is very tastefully done.. one thing that i would change is the SLP SS logos they just don't match IMO, other than that i love it!

Cool "Daytime Running Lamps" with halo's or headlights On and retaining the standard DRL

I went the "badkarma" way, after trying "the brainhart" DIY and burning the driver side diode twice.
'Ivan' piggyback the front side markers to the Foglights when they come on (without using diodes).
Yellowish DRL lights on at the same time as the white RS lights will look wrong.
My LED bulbs are from vled'shttp://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/P...26829-1-2.html
You will have to cut the factory light connector and replaced it with a connector socket that fit in the housing snuggly
(I used NAPAs LS6472 http://www.napaonline.com/Search/Det...472_0218441387). Now you can use any 921 type bulb!
Don't need to remove the bumper, just remove the 3 screws on the wheel well liner with a torx bit/screwdriver.
Pull the wheel well liner back to reach in . It well only take a few minutes.
If you don't want to cut the factory light connector you can buy the P13W LED's from 'AACstyle' for $99.http://www.automotivelightstore.com/P13W.aspx...
