I'm just curious... we had a 2012 charger come in but the software only went up to 2010. and my friend tried to run his stock fiesta but it was too new.

Just wonder if it ended up being run as a 2011 with the weight tweaked. it would be close but I could see it showing a little more or less. We use a mustang dyno too.

Nice drop. How much was the drop (in inches)?

I forgot to take measurements, though it only appears to be about an inch. I am going to take measurements next weekend after it's finished settling and will post them here.

Thanks for the props!

Oh, and I'll post in the clunking thread, but when I pulled my right strut (left was already replaced by the dealer), the top cap came apart in two pieces. This let some of the bearings fall out. I don't know 100% but I'm pretty sure that it shouldn't have done that. I thought I had taken pics, but for some reason I can't find them on my phone.

For those that follow my thread and have the clunking noise...

Ok, here are the new wheel concepts for your opinions. Red would go to final with gunmetal powdercoat and grey (would actually be body color) would go with black powdercoat.

I'll try to post better pics tomorrow, because the pics of the red aren't very accurate. It's roughly the color of the tail lights. It's kind of difficult to say 'it's like this, but different', but I was trying to get close matches without popping the car in the store.

The red is kind of 'hey, look at me!' while the grey is like 'check me out.' Very subdued.

I do appreciate the feedback! I must also throw in the disclaimer that the red was my gf's idea, and I must give her credit for it. (she votes red)

I see where you are going with it, like a ruby color. I agree with ya. The red is kind of "shouty". I'm not a fan of color wheels though. Unless its an Blue STi with Gold wheels.
