That'd be nice! It's a good recognition especially for us sixxers... We basically have to start from scratch...

the thing i love about coils is not the fact that u can constantly change ur ride height, but that u can perfectly slam your car. with springs u take a chance. some sides might be higher than the other and u cant do much about it. with coils u can even them all out .

If you do an 8.8 swap before I get to it, do a write up in the stickies for all the sixxers to read! Thanks

True. If you are going to spend money on performance parts, you have to make sure you base your decisions according to what are your actual plans for the car.

Took my car to the shop for an AC evacuation and recharge and they found out that my radiator fan is broken so it wont cool. They wanted to charge $70 for undoing the 3 bolts and wire harness and I said screw you I'm coming up there and ill be done in 5 minutes with taking it out, swapping the fan motor, and install. Needless to say, I made $70 in 5 minutes theoretically

I did that a few weeks ago and a buddy of mine who works at the shopped called me and said that after filling it he got shot in the face from a leak i had in my hoses. Shop said it was 300 to fix so i said who needs ac when your car has no roof? Lol

Well I had no leaks just needed the useless pressure in the system to be vacuumed out and my fan motor died and I went up there and swapped it out.

Now my AC is colder than alaska
