    Thanks, man. The Epics are doing 'okay,' I guess. They make me feel a little vulnerable. I've hit some nasty holes and bottomed out (hit the bump stops) a few times. Though I don't really need to yet, I plan on installing the Konis very soon.

    Thanks a lot, man. The addition of the TMIC, EBCS, and protune has seriously changed this car and the way I feel about it. My mod bug is finally resting. :-)

    As for the Grimmspeed Master Cylinder Brace, mine says "hi, i'm STILL here" to me everyday, as I pass by it sitting on my workbench. :-) Apparently, unless you're an infant octopus, it's a very tight and difficult install. Did you see my recent post about it? - "

    Attempted to install Grimmspeed Master Cylinder Brace, only to find out that I'll need to completely reroute/move all of the Grimmspeed AOS lines to have even a remote chance of getting that thing in there. UGH.

    Thanks, man. Other than the Grimmspeed uppipe with 44mm Tial EWG, my performance progress should be paused for a little bit. It's time for more work on suspension and braking.

    So which CBE do you have saved to your Favorites? :-)

    This is the route I'm going currently

    Im Currently stage 2 (DP, CBE and CAI) and definitely want the TMIC and EBCS. Which reminds me, how's the fitment on the PWTMIC? I've read that there have been issues with the Perrin

    I've since installed F&R sways, 18s, springs, end links, bushings etc. STS and now want to drop in steel lines, and the GS MBC Brace

    I didn't see your post. I did read from others that it's a ***** of an install. In my opinion if I can do the rear shifter bushings and steering rack bushings I can do anything. Hahaha!

    Cool. Fitment for the PW TMIC is almost perfect...and I'm a pretty harsh judge. There is some play in the holes of the added brackets that comes in use when tightening it all down at the end. It's a fairly straightforward install. The bellhousing bolt (1 of 2 used to hold the supporting bracket) was the only frustrating part for me. That sucker is TIGHT. PB blaster and lateral force, it will go.

    Oh, the rear shifter bushing...once the scars were gone from doing mine, I was stupid enough to help a friend with his, too. I finally just cut that heat shield off. I'm not even considering doing the steering rack bushings! :-0

    Haha I actually got my rear bushing off and on in 15 minutes. But that steering rack bushing set was a MFer!!! My 3 year old son helped too... So it took a bit longer.

    I took my TMIC off once to install the pitch stop. Seems like it would be a straight forward install!
