Um this is not a comment on anyone’* driving and I don’t plan to challenge anyone but learning to drive will give you more performance than any screen removal and that with the mods you suggested will make for some fun. i mean really learning to drive. Look into it you will find once you start learning what is "better and worse that even the nicest car can be beaten with fool behind the wheel. Alot of fools own nice cars...lol

What do you mean in your signature by 'running on 5 cylinders'? Is something wrong with your engine?
yep as of right now one of the pistons isn't connected anymore :( Right now i'm searching around for the BEST deal on a transplant.

Yeah Ty i do agree w/ learning how to drive better as a means of performance. Dumb asses are fun to beat esp, when there w/ thier girlfriends. he he he

lol i already cut a hole out of the metal behind my headlight, i can see the filter if i look under my headlight. I know when i took my doors apart to fix some squeeking i could have taken alot of metal out but that might come in handy should a car ram into my side.

Take all the doors off, they are just adding weight you dont really need! Just remember to wear your seatbelt!
