Beat me to it.

Lower control arms and get rid of that 4x4 stock stance. Also a MGW shifter.

Make sure you get some good CC plates when you lower it. I recommend MM CC plates, Steeda LCAs, stock uppers and then your choice of budget lowering springs/shocks/struts until you get a legit coilover setup going.

You'll eventually want a good aftermarket stall converter then. Look into J-modding the trans too. I think I told you that in another thread tho... makes a difference x1000.

If you do a stall converter make sure to get a tranny cooler. It's gonna get hot as f and it will lessen the life of your tranny if you let it get that hit all the time

B&M twin fan cooler will keep the temps down and make it last a very long time.

It sounds like you definitely have some great mods so far! Post up some pictures of your New Edge, we'd love to check it out.

If I were you, I would probably throw a set of Long Tube Headers on there and a Throttle body next! Then I would focus on the suspension. Upper/Lower Control Arms, Lowering Springs, Struts/Shocks etc..

This is just a few recommendations but that's definitely the next step of your build!

Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future! You can also give my CS team a call anytime you have a questions, they're happy to help.

-Dan

Recommending longtubes over a good suspension? Why? Stock manifolds are not restrictive and getting the car's stance correct and some extra ability to put the power already there to the ground is a MUCH better bang for the buck.

I'm passing up on the PS4 and getting some springs and CC plates this Christmas. I am so sick of wheel gap. Always wanted to do coil overs, but they're so expensive. Just hopin' i don't rub the front.

For you OP, i'd recommend doing the same!

UPR Front Kit. Might want to think about this, its not going to be much more than a PS4. Its on sale now but IIRC they do even bigger sales around the holidays. Its the lightest K out there and lots of ppl use this kit with great results.

Also, eff consoles, build a gaming PC that'll be good for longer and run higher end games. You only think your graphics are great on a console till you play a modified Skyrim with 4000K texture packs and ENB.

I have about 150 mods loaded on mine. One of my favorite armor mods is below.

Fixt the pic above, realized that was an outdated version with less bling. Blasphemy!

I won't go into some of the ...mods... out there. Some people really need a GF is all I will say haha.

Back on topic, OP should seriously consider the UPR. Probably going on my car this spring along with some other stuff actually. The MM piece is really nice too but at $1k more and heavier... unless you are corner carving its overkill.

wish i could justify that as a gift. I don't think i'll get away with more than 400 bucks for a gift though, lol. And, there seems to be alot of people going the PC route these days. I don't blame uhm. It's just, trolling 14 year olds on the Xbox while reclined in a lazy boy, sippin a beer. It's just my thing man. But i'm not too excited for the new Generation anyway. I'm going to wait until they fix all the inevitable kinks in the system.

Watch out for those kids in some of these games... they dont mess around. However it is fun to hear some of the stuff they say like its going to be offensive.

It's hilarious, usually I just laugh at them and mute them, sometimes I argue with them, shuts them up, and proceed to own them in whatever game it is, but it's hilarious when they are on my team...
