Just picked up my car from realspeed automotive in long island where they installed a full maximum motorsports suspension package along with some other goodies. Car is amazing now Smile

It's on both the realspeed and maximum motorsports facebook pages:
https://www.facebook.com/MaximumMotorsports
https://www.facebook.com/Realspeed

mm road & track package + torque arm and coilovers
87 spindles and front brakes +SS lines
ssbc rear disc brakes (to keep the 4 lug stock rims)
converted to mass air, car tuned w/ sct chip (stock heads / small block)
- 24lb injectors + BBK black out cold air kit / mass air meter / throttle body
- bbk fuel rail + guage + aeromotive fpr
- 255 fuel pump + new fuel tank
- long tube headers + flowmaster SS catback + hpipe
- performer rpmII black intake +
- new water pump, radiator, hoses etc

Have done so much work this year, car is running great now and thrilled.
Probably another 2 years until I'm done, but going down the road!!!

Your car looks great. Glad to see you doing the upgrades so that you can enjoy the car like you want. I bet it sounds awesome with the long tubes and the flowmasters.

Sorry for slow replies I was on vacation in maine since saturday (it was awesome!).

Car handles amazing, I haven't put enough miles on it or really pushed it yet. I went out for a curvy drive but it started sprinkling so I took it easy. I could feel all the MM gear moving the rear axle around if I get on it in a corner, alot of traction. I stepped on the brakes 1 time so far and it felt like a modern sports car, ie like my 2011 evolution lancer with bbs brakes feltl. I mainly went with ssbc to retain stock 4 lug and asc rims, but can't tell how much is coming from them or the upgraded front brakes.

Exhaust sounds amazing, perfect for me. I know many don't like the old flowmaster sound but it works well for this car Smile

Have a leak to sort out before I can drive it more, think its coming from speedo cable down onto my feet!

Will update more later.
