Cool Gee Tee Pee

If it was mine, I would try to clean up the compressor install in the trunk.

Can I be constructively critical?

Exhaust-little or no gain if you kept the U-bend and stock cat.

Airbag hardware-adds weight, no performance. DETRACTS from performance.

Chrome rims- lose performance because of rotating mass. Lo-pro tires lose grip.

CAI and pulley add performance.

"3 steps forward, 2 steps back"

What'* the goal here, and what'* with the suspension?

Pics look fine to me. That'* the right size for posting.

I'm just curious what the goal here is. Is the pulley and CAI intended to make up for the loss of quickness the other mods do?

He wants to show the car more than racing the car but still wants to keep his edge on the performance part of view. There will be more performance mods and cosmetic mods.

He is into cosmetic and sound he loves the sound of the flowmasters and loves all the looks when he pops the back end way up in the air and lowers the front way down making it look like it should be like a RWD car everone loves it and complements him on it
