Review: APR Strut Bar and R1 Billet pedals
I've had the APR strut bar on for about 4 days now. The car definitely feels more solid. I took it down a windy road that I usually go fast on, and the car definitelty handled better. I can also tell the difference from just going around turns (intersections and whatnot). I also love the way it looks under my Hood. Install was very simple and took no time at all. I recommend this to anyone.

I can't wait to see how I can handle those turns when I put on my Hotchkis springs and tokico shocks.

Racing Pedals: I love these things. Install sucked a little bit, because it was so freaking hot outside and I had to do it in my driveway so I could have light. The install was easy, just sucked sweating everywhere. They are not 'slippery' with my everyday shoes. But with my work shoes, they are a little slippery. My foot does not fly off the clutch, but I can't be shifting as fast as I could with my casual kicks.
I also put some white vinyl behind them to add to the look, and I love it. They look awesome! These are definitely worth the invest as well. They are great compliments with other interior mods.

Awesome Dan. If you want better handling, get some sway bars. thumbsup

Sways sound great. I have no idea what my next mods will be. I still want that freaking engine mount. But I need cash, I'm all out... cry

would an engine mount make that much of a difference?

I think the engine mount would be a good invest. It will rduce the wheel hop, and allow for a little more torque/hp to the wheels. This mod will help mainly in launches.
