    This is funny I was going to post this same thread.
    But anyway:
    MM IRS bushings, I dont regret getting them, but If I was to do it all over I wouldn't have b/c of the time it took to do it.
    Also my Accufab T/B, I wish I would have waited and got a stock ported one or found a used one.
    Oh-and my Nitto 315 DR's, on thestreet they are great. At the track they suck.

    Unless you have a good prepped track, a pullied Cobra wont let them hook.

    I agree with the MM IRS bushings (what a pain in the arse) and the Procharger...although it really didn't end up being a waste of time.

    I will also never move a battery to the trunk again in any car.

    Me too. Nothing but problems with that mod for me. Even blew my alternator out. Besides that, I think the Redline D4 ATF was up there too. That fluid made my tranny almost unshiftable. Horrible stuff to say the least.

    Oh, the densecharger was a pile of shit along with the Autolite 103 plugs

    Magnaflow X-pipe that I sold because of the high pitch sound

    Magnaflow catback (which maybe I should have left on)

    Flowmaster Catback (sold because not loud enough)


    I now have the Borla Stinger which I'm happy with but I wasted all the money from above

    K&N stock replacement filter and Denso IT/22s never could get the gap right. It seemed that every few weeks I would have to re-gap, the car would run good then after said time it would start stumbleing again. The other is special, I am not disappointed with the mod just that when I was installing my Flowmaster cat-back I dropped the back of the car on the ramp mangling the newly installed pipe and later caught the muffler on a city water pipe valve du-hicky sticking out of the street. But for the most part all mods have been on Par.

    I never even had any problems. It just wasn't worth the money and trouble. Did you do the install? What ended up being your problem?

    I don't like the Steeda 100mm idler. Too hard to get off if you ever need to remove it. Other than that, everything else is good.

    I am worried about future mods, however. I am looking at porting the Eaton and a TB but I have heard lots of negatives on these. Any opinions?

    BBK catted-X. Very poor design, pipe hung down to low and was always dragging the ground.

    Pro 5.0 shifter. Made the shifting very "notchy" and emitted terrible gear noise. Got rid of that and did an MGW handle and damn do I ever like it.

    HUH?? I have not heard negatives in a long time. The only negatives I heard were regarding other companies who were new to porting. Steigemeier should be a safe bet!
