looks good so far. If I were you I'd look into some sway bars and endlinks as well, and possibly some stiffer springs. You'll be dancing after that.

I wish I could afford $400 for a radar detector. Although my $80 Cobra has saved me plenty of times and I have still never been caught speeding.

Everyone should just remember that if it's laser you are screwed. The V1 has the most range of any detector. When it picks up laser you better plan to get pulled over. For K, Ka or X you'll get warned over a mile ahead.

Only defense for Laser is a jammer or slow down.

I have been told through this forum that with the UTEC you should get an EGT gauge and Wideband O2 kit if you plan on tuning it.
