I love spring (just expressing happyness)

Hello,
Just recived parts from Mcnews this past week and I put them on. I got a scream demon coil and wires, tb, vf motor mount, apexi super grounding kit and also put all four bfg g-force kdw on (225-45-17). All I have to say is that my svt runs very well now and just fell like all around performance and drivablity has improved very nicely. When you take it up the rpm, it is smooth and pulls harder now. Also the tires made the biggest difference. They spin once or twice then they just grab. They are the best thing I have done to my car yet. Was concidering lowering it, but with one size bigger, it fill the wheel wells and gives the car a nice mean look now. The first corner i took, it just huges the road so well I could not belive it. If you have an svt I recomend these tires before you lower it, because I just love my svt. When it get nice out, I just love putting parts on my car and just rip around town. Before with shot tires, intake, cat-back, orp, upd, sts, stut bars and new cluth i raced my friend rsx-s and lost by one car over and over again, both of us had good races and drive well, know with new tires and my parts from mcnews, I bet him by a fender. (I win is a win) 4 out of 4 races yesterday. I can wait to get my car tuned by mcnews in april.
Andrew

Not yet, I hope to get it tuned in april. I talked to menews and they recomended me to do the bolt on before I get it tuned. My car is already quicker then stock. My friend has a stock svt, I took it for a drive yesterday and what a difference. My car pull harder and when you shift from 1st to 2nd your out. No more mising second (If you have an 04, you now what I mean)

I raced an RSX-S a while ago and was dead even with him until about 80mph, we shut down at 120 and I was only about a foot and a half from his rear bumper. If I didnt hit the rev limiter in 1st I may have been slightly closer.
