If I were in your shoes.........there are some fantastic roads in Cali. I'd be finishing out the suspension with some lowering springs, shocks, PHB, strut tower brace, and maybe some lower control arms and relocation brackets.

Hey Elkorita ,

Personally, if you are leaning towards boost, I say bite the bullet and go for it!

I love the Procharger High Output Intercooled Supercharger on the 3.7.

They make awesome power, sound great, and look great glistening under your hood.

Let me know if you have any other questions or are thinking about going a different direction.

-Will

It just seems like they are always messing around with them. I dont know maybe I dont know what Im talking about, but it just seems like in the wrong hands it might be a hassle.

While you're waiting to decide between turbo or PC, build up your suspension and get a 1 piece aluminum drive shaft .
You will need all that anyway , so get it now while you learn research and decide

I guess the only "suspension" mod that I have are the anti roll sway bars. I don't have anything else: control arms, one piece driveshaft, lower springs, etc... I think I enjoy the ride as it currently is. how much will a suspension "kit" run me?

I would personally go with upgrading gears and install a one piece drive shaft. Especially for a daily driver this will make your car more fun to drive around town. Plus, installing a one piece drive shaft would be beneficial especially if you decide to throw a procharger on.

question: I already have the eibach sway bars installed... if I add a panhand bar, front strut brace, and lowering springs would that be enough to notice an increase in handling? also for those who have the springs, how's the ride comfort? I actually enjoy the height where car is at

I havent done many suspension mods, really only lowering springs and strut tower brace. The lowering springs will be a big improvement for sure, cant believe you havent done this yet...but for me the big thing was the strut tower brace. It really tightened the car up a lot. It gets rid of a lot of the front end wanting to bounce around.

Some people go crazy with their suspension mods and some dont. I didnt, but I love the way my car handles and drives. Its nothing to crazy since my car is a DD. I recommend the Eibach Pro kit.

+1 for this.. I agree that you should start building your Suspension and go with 1 piece DS.
