After reading the text included below from the Steeda website looks like swapping to an aftermarket front swaybar isn't nearly as important as the rear swaybar.

"V6 models come with a 28mm front swaybar for an 85% increase in roll stiffness. V8 GT and GT500 models are equipped with a 34mm front swaybar for a 10% increase in roll stiffness."

So an aftermarket front swaybar is only 10% better than the factory piece. While the rear swaybar is good for a 50% increase as per Steeda.

"This bar provides a 50% increase in roll stiffness for improved handling, improved steering response, and reduced understeer for improved handling balance. A must have for the cornering enthusiast and perfect for street or track use."

So with that said if and when I decide to go with a front swaybar I'm keeping the stock one.

Looks good! The sound is familiar That in-car footage sucked looks like a 8 year old shot it. I wonder how this car handles, I know it has the 2nd gen Watts Link, not sure if they installed coilovers. Looks like a road course is a challenge with those 20's

After much debating, I bit the bullet yesterday and ordered these from GTR (thanks Jed! )...




I'm already in the hole, so what's another $470, right?

btw, I can't have Leo with his N/A engine bay out do mine.

I plan to have my 500 miles in over this weekend and next week..... hopefully..... because I plan to have it dyno tuned on Tuesday 10/7 and hitting the dragstrip on Wednesday 10/8 for our annual local track rental.
