Done Gone and Done It

Well I started my time on this forum by asking the question why do the mods and spend the money making a great car better? Pretty much what I walked away learning was, if you gotta ask why then your in the wrong place. So like all before me I am a convert and can now say I understand. I've been busy and my credit card company is going to have an annual holiday in my honor. Here is the sum total of what I have done:
Konig Beyond Wheels 20x10/20x9
Pilot Sport A/S 275/35ZR20 245/40R20
Eibach Pro Sport Springs
JBA Long Tube Headers - JBA Hi-Flow Catted H-Pipe
MRT Aeroturbine Mufflers
C&L Cold Air Intake
XCalibrator 2 Tune
Silver Horse Racing Honeycomb Taillight Panel
I'll put some pictures up in the next couple of days. The rear tires are monsters. They really fill the wheel wells.

Thanks to all who have helped make my decisions even better ones

I think my first post was "Who is going to keep their car as-is". At that time I said no mods for me because the car was perfect. That didn't last too long. I'm right there with ya. Well not quite, but I have made a few mods and am planning my next one(s). This forum is definitely addicting but it has made my car much more fun to own.

Yeah, I'm curious about the MRT aero-turbines too!!!

We stuck just a single one on my V6 and seen a 7RWHP gain OVER my Magnaflow! And the sound was amazing... So now I'm curious what the GT guys think about them..... LOL!

Yea, they're a good mod, wish I'd know sooner there actually IS some power in our exhausts!

I'm swapping my cats for off-road pipes on my Kooks system today... should be good for 5-8 RWHP... Hopefully not too loud...

The Kooks system goes on with the stock K-member and motor mounts.

I'm not sure but I think they changed the JBA to fit with the stock mounts? You used to have to, or at least it was recommended, to get the Steeda AM mounts...

It is a pita to get them on from under there and a lift is strongly recommended!

Plan on 4-5 hours of labour if you have them installed... prolly double laying on the drive way...??

Too add the mid pipes (removing the cats) is an easy swap, again I don't know on the JBA system but on the Koos system they're separate... just ~2 feet of high grade SS piping with the hangers welded on...

Kooks testing shows a 7-8 RWHP gain with the off-road pipes over the catted pipes, a total gain of close to 30 RWHP!

Had to change the fronts the tires looked out of proportion. Went up to 255/35 on the front stuck with the 275/35 on the rear. here are some pics.

Come to think of it... I haven't encountered a single person on this site that has replaced the stock brakes on their S197. I'd like to see a nice set of cross drilled rotors behind some 18's or 19's
