Pfadt installed!

Got my Pfadt lowering springs thanks to Chase @ Apex Motorsports. Did a self-install yesterday and was pretty easy. Any body can do it as long as you have a T50 torx wrench .....had to run into work to pick one up

Now the car handles like how it should.....feels like as if it were on rails and I don't know if its me or not, but I think it has a better ride quality than the stock suspension.....no bounce or pounding at all!!! I'd recomend these to anybody looking a good set of lowering springs....Pfadt nailed it on this one!!

NOW.....for the next mod......22's! Just waiting for the Forgestar F14's to come out in 22's...hopefully by December!

Before and after pics...

After

No problem, what kind of business do you do here? I live right next to the airport too, so when you land you might see my car in the driveway. LOL

Cool. You should fly down and spend a longer time here! The port is in George Town and I live in George Town. When the cruise ships are in, I can just see the stacks on the top of them from my house.

Barton short throw shifter

Did this a while back but forgot to post it up. Shifts are nice and short and feel so much better than the sloppy stock unit.

Painted brake calipers

I painted the calipers red first and then used a Brembo stencil that I got a local shop to make and them painted the black on. Came out perfect

Upgraded Plasma LEDs from AAC

They really look good and are a lot brighter than the original LEDs they had first.
I am going to change the factor HIDs from 4300K to 6000K, hopefully they will match better then
