Default I think i have changed my mind

WEll as some of you know i was full force on making my car one fo the fastest n/a bonnies. I was going to get some rockers/ pcm/ throttlebody. well now i have been thinking again. lol
i am still goingto get a pcm whe i comes out because i hate going 105 and not being able to pass anyone. however i think i am going to drop all perf mods. and go for handling/looks. to me its just not worth 600 bucks to drop .5 sec off ym et and still be slow.
I drove a new maxima today and i was very very impressed. I will never buy a foreign car but still that thing was QUICK !!!! and it also handled like a dream. So knowing that my car would never compare to a new car esp the v8'* out there i am going for ULTRA LUXURY im am going to sound deaden my whole car untill its as quiet as a lexus and i am going to get some subframe connectors/ possible kybs to make it ride great. I am also going to upgrade my speakers ( thanks to term ) and do some custom mods like moving my jackstand and adding 2 square subs in the cubbie holes where the jack stand is and the opposite side where there is nothing. that way i can have more room for my stuff. I am also thinking or upgrading the rest of my suspension so i can handle the roads at quicker speeds and handle the turns while feeling safer.

so now my ? for you all. has anyone tried KYB struts for our cars??? what kind of ride do they provide? stiff - bouncey?
ill have more ?'* later.

We use different struts than the the Grand Prix'*, jus some FYI, take a look. And don't go cheap, do Koni'* since you can get those adjustable. And you never know, you could put the ZZP CSC kit on the car and make it move or maybe later a turbo?
