Xpipe intake throttlebody and tuner

Well guys I got round one of my new parts installed this weekend
Magnaflow o/r xpipe
Bbk 78mm throttle body
Bbk cai
And flashed the sct tuner with a custom performance tune
The car is like a whole different ride now it's awesome and so loud

Next weekend I'm putting on my new steeda ball joints, strut tower brace, and MM CC plates

Ps anyone know how to get the spindle off the ball joint easily? I would've done the ball joints this weekend if I could've gotten the damn thing to budge

Not sure I would have to take it to a dyno but there is a noticeable difference

Not sure how old your car is, but mine is. 97 GT Conv. Mine were a beast. Took both C-arms off and took them to fella who had to use a impact chisle(blunted) to beat them out due to age and rust. Take care not to damage housing though. Pressing in the new ones were easy. Try some PB Blaster a few days before you begin. Mine didn't have retaining clamps. Other tech is to break joint loose, get an old socket (right fit for shoulder) and beat the crap out it (how's your aim?). Leave the arm attached though. P.S don't hit the car body.

I would take to a pro if its really tough.

You can get one at an auto parts store for under $15. I believe it's called a pickle fork.
You can also put a deposit down on a ball joint press and they'll return your money back when you return it.
