update on my 03 svt

had this car for about 2 months now. fixed a bunch of the problems it had and regular maintinese on it. threw a couple upgrades on it too. replaced the beat clutch with the luk rep set, found an mbrp exhaust there was already a aem short ram on it and i just did the orp today!!!!! its raining here in PA so i only took it out around the block and i gotta say it sounds amazing. a bit raspy in the mid range but overall i love it cant wait to hit some dry roads!!! now im wondering what to do next any sugestions. im thinking of some suspension work.

Big power changes the character of the car, and it's also quite expensive.

Think about what you wish was different, then figure what changes are needed to "fix" that.

"Suspension" is too wide a category, it helps to have an idea what you want from it to get the results desired.

i know for a fact that it needs new struts and handle now is pretty great. anybody can make a car go fast in a straight line. but to make it go fast and hug corners like its ur buisness is a little tougher. it is my dd and i like driving back roads so i just think suspension would be my next step.
