6/6/11 Installed my VMAX ported throttle body today. Biggest waste of money. I felt no difference and all the dynos I have see show no power gains. I will also never buy anything from Janetty racing I had to wait 8 weeks on something they said would take 2-4 weeks and when i tried to cancel my order half way in they wanted to charge me $71 even though they had done nothing but charge my credit card.
Cost of today's mods $171.70
Vmax ported TB $171.70

6/13/11 Swapped out my Nitto NT05R 315/40 18 drag radials for my Falken Azenis 295/40 18 street tires so I wouldn't wear the drag radials out. The Nittos have a tread wear of 00 and the Falken have a tread wear of 200. I also ordered another set of 18x11 Forgestar F14s for my drag radials.
Cost of today's mods $ 600.16
Falken Azenis RT-615 295/40 18 $575.16
swapping tires $25

I had something similar happen.

And the VMAX is snake oil.

Love your build.

Got my powder coated calipers today! This pretty much finishes off all of the planned appearance mods I wanted to do to my car. I honestly can't think of anything else I would do appearance wise to my car. The orange doesn't match the IOM perfectly (the calipers are a little bit lighter), but it is pretty close. It is nice to know my wallet woin't be taking anymore hits that won't make my car faster. The swap was pretty easy, just had the wife pump the brakes while I bled them.

I REALLY want to drive next to my car to see these calipers through the spinning wheels on the road!

Total cost of todays mods: $330
Caliper swap from Mike: $330

Yours look good. Makes me feel better about the IOM ones mike just did for me. I only have IOM stripes, but the powdercoat did look a little off from the actual stripe color. Seeing yours look that good puts my mind at ease.

7/2/11 So I have a goal of reducing Ginger's weight without taking anything away from being able to daily driver. I was a little worried about this battery not holding up, since I always have my Ac on, stereo blasting and raise/lower my top multiple times everyday. I have had it on for almost a week now and it has been GREAT! It actually has a little more voltage than the stock battery. Keep in mind I also have the ASP under drive pulley so the alternator is spinning slower than stock and the battery still hold up great. Only think I don't do anymore is sit in the car with it off and lights/stereo on or operate the top.

Stock battery is about 44 lbs and this one is just under 15 lbs. I also removed the compressor/slime and styrofoam holder. So all together I lost about 36 lbs.

I used some foam pads I had laying around to secure the battery in the stock location.

Cost of Today's mod: $158.52
Braille 2015 15 lb battery $158.52

I just checked Ebay and found one for $130 shipped
