Pondering..........ProDTM bumper or rare special euro bumper??????? Euro is almost 3x the cost of the DTM. Also euro is an abs factory type plastic opposed to the duraflex of the DTM. So euro would be more durable but have heard DTM is pretty durable though. Just don't know if I really want to spend that much on the euro lol. Alot to think about................

Soo IT'S ALIVE! IT'S ALIVE! Yeller' drives again. Replaced the starter (which came with it's own dyno sheet FTW!), swapped motor mounts from the SVT (still waiting on new inserts), and changed the oil. Oh and I ordered the bushing direct from ES which was pretty cool. Very good price, and I know this insert will last a few years since it's got the big lip to keep it from slipping out like the Prothane one is doing on the SVT's mount. Just flipped it on the side of the good lip for now lol

Euro hands down and I'm going to use the glass pack as well as the current muffler. Just holding it up to the exhaust already takes some sound out of it and mellows it out. Hopefully it mellow it out as much as I want.
