Not trying to dampen your modding spirit. I'd suggest you consider fixing the suspension components of the car to increase the reliablility before you continue modding.

Remember your front CCR strut w/o connector and the smell of burning wires if you press the buttons.

The rear struts sound like they past leaking years back and now intend to fall off the car if you don't address them soon. End links on both front and rear sway bars would be easy while struts are being done.
And I would also do a thorough intake cleaning. There is more where this came from.


BTW everyone..meet Jay..aka Lux Premier


Ohh... and in about a month you need to tell me you changed the oil.... 10-20K oil changes are not going to keep your car performing well.

Ok..MOD ON!

Your throttle body is showing signs of a bad PCV valve.
