Lol, yea they have that kind of effect. I felt that way to but with the suspension pretty much done my only gripe is wanting more power.

Yea it's not the fastest car I've owned (had 2 talons and a supercharged pickup) but its decent for now . I'm currently waiting for raceland to finish developing their USDM coilover kit so I can get that and a set of swaybars because the lowering springs/strut combo isn't my cup if tea

Yeah I had a Mustang before this and a worked VW. I can't lie, the handling on these cars a great. LMK when you get ready to install the coilover kit if you need a hand.

yea i love the way i can toss this car in the twisties and it feels so planted, i cant wait till i get the coilovers and sway bars and get it dialed in. thanks fo rthe offer but im more of a one man show when it comes to my own car (bad past experiences) but im a mechanic anyway so i have access to tools and a lift if i want at work. but if you or anyone else in the area ever needs help give me a shout im always down to help

also i saw ur a welder, do you have a setup at home ? i love welding and have started getting into mig, i modified my turbo manifold on my talon to fit an hx35 diesel turbo and built my own downpipe and exhaust for it from 3 inch pipe

No prob I understand, and I'll keep that in mind if I need a hand. At the moment I don't have a setup at home. I can mig but I'm a Tig welder, any smaller side jobs I can usually do at work. Lmk if you need anything done.

Awesome I'm currently brainstorming ideas for turbo manifolds, I like how fewers has an adapter to use the stock zetec manifold, I may just go that route

sounds like a plan. I'm sort of in between if I want to go turbo or not. If I do I was planning to go with the stock manifold setup.
