I whole heartedly disagree. My L36 moves me along just fine and sounds good as **** with an intake and flowmaster.

Thank you Vigs! I disagree with Hans too. That'* is his opinion, fine, I'll respect it. but you have to admit the L36 is pretty impressive at what it can do considering it'* naturally aspirtated.

Will do

Just go with what your heart and mind really wants. The car should speak to you.

I must also say that speed is something that I enjoy, and I see some of the 1/4 mile times, but I like 0-60mph times.....I believe stock is 7.1 seconds, so with some popular mods added to the car.... say on a 98 SSEi....what could the 0-60 times be? Thanks

Keep an eye out for performance ride and touring ride buttons. That means CCR struts. If both lights are lit..there is a malfunction with the system.

I'm sure others will add plenty.
Out of curiosity--what'* the problem when both buttons are lit? I think both of them are in my girlfriends car D:

Means there'* a malfunction in the system and you are off to the dealer to get it scanned for special strut codes.
