What would you choose? And if you know of any videos with similar set ups please post them. Only thing that slightly worries me is having the OBX system sound tinny in WOT. I know from reviews the prochamber smoothes it out. But I'm still after a loud system, but refined I guess I should say.

Help?
I've never really looked into the LT's so I have no Idea which one's are better or which sound better etc.. Not much help I know. Just go with the most popular one. There's a reason why there's a more popluar one. Perfect example is Stingers.

Better vision at night is always better.

Of course, that always comes at a price.

Doug (and probably Brenspeed) offers post-sale support in terms of modifying your tune when you add/delete mods (except FI) at no additional cost. At $50+ a pop, it adds up quick, especially if you keep modding your car.

Looks like the mirrors may have to go on hold so I can get the panhard and why not the panhard support while I'm down there.
Cool! Post pics tomorrow if you can. Would like to see how the 255/spacer combo looks.

Which brand adj. panhard bar you thinking of going with?

No first hand experience with LT's either.

Leo, 'grats on the tires..... expect to see pix soon.

Jonco- honestly between those two choices, I'd probably pick the OBX headers. Just my 2 cents.

Don't miss out. I ordered my set.
http://www.silverhorseracing.com/web...ategory_id=255

Brian-I'll be ordering the BMR Panhard and Panhard suppor tomorrow. Assuming Bill's cool with it I'll bring both parts down so you guys can see the install. Seems pretty straight foward though.

OK now I'm seriously done modding. I don't know what got into me these past few weeks.

Looked at Steeda's adj panhard bar? Looks like it's maintenance free like my LCA's.

Looks like an easy install, especially with the air compressor.

I believe VMP tuning does as well. For you Jonco, it wouldn't be that far if to drive if you ever had a problem. They are located on the other side of Orlando (still far away, but closer than anyone else) in Deland. Justin has great customer service.

The panhard install is fairly easy. You just gotta use some old fashioned force to get it in there. I don't know about the support though. Adjusting the panhard bar is pretty cool though. You can actually see the body move over the tires as you adjust it.

Congrats on the tires too by the way Leo. Mine should be going on in a couple days too.

Phil- love the HIDs. I wouldn't mind having a set myself. Your engine bay wasn't nearly as bad as you tried to make us think it was. Mine is probably just as bad, but I'll be digging around in there cleaning it tomorrow.

Looking at the pic from their website looks like their panhard bar's got zirc fittings so it may not be maintence free. Yeah looks easier than your LCA's were. Unless of course my car has some other hidden paperweights. More like empty moneybags.

After looking at prices it's acutally cheaper to get both parts from Steeda. Reason is the lower cost of the support bar balances out the lower price of BMR's panhard bar. So both setup's are within $10-$20 of each other depeding on the vendor. Who knew.

No doubt it looks very easy. It's just it's become like a tradition to do it a Kev's now. Plus gives me a good excuse to drive the car down to LA. (Assuming Bill and Kevin are cool with it.)

What kind and what size tire you getting? Rims too?

Phil-HID's look good. Do they sell matching Fogs?

Am I the only one thats ordered the SHR grilles?

I ordered the Nitto 555s (285/40/18 and 255/45/18). I'll let the new rims be a bit of a surprise.

I was looking at Nitto 555's as well but chose the BFG because of the tread pattern. Well then what kind of rims did you get?

Tonight at our Mustang club meeting I met up with Luis aka Superfly on TMS. He just bought a new 07 white GTCS nice ride and options. Would have taken pictures but since it was a meeting at Pizza Butt I didn't bring a camera. If the weathers good on Saturday Luis may check out Cars & Coffee in Irvine.

On a second note I'm off tomorrow. The Roush is getting an alignment and after that I'm going to get my rims black chrome plated. This should take a week or two. Bill did you play hookie from work? I think you said your were coming down with a cold

I believe they do Leo, what are the fogs H10 or H11 can't remember.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/HID-C...spagenameZWDVW

You just specify what bulb type and color you want. Shipping is a bit excessive but combined cost of $71 is not to bad.

I think I'm going to jump on the SHR grilles as well Leo, I like the look.

Also I'm going to order a tune from Brenspeed to try out. Just not feeling satisfied with my BAMA 93Race tune lately so I'm going to get the Brenspeed and do a comparo.

FYI fogs are H10.

Hey Phil, make sure you tell Brenspeed what you want in your tune.... they don't do the marketing "street, torque, performance, race" thing- send Brent an email at: [email protected] and let him know what you have now and what you're looking for.
