    We are trying to get rid of our debts so we can buy a house. Partially stocking out my car to sell some mods and use the money to pay off debt.

    Almost pulled the trigger on that setup, but haven't really seen enough info out there. I'll likely go the Bilstein/Eibach route.

    I am really happy with the results. The back seems to be lowered more than the front just by looking at the gap between the fender and tire. It. handles like it is on rails. I'm loving it!

    This is on Corksport springs and shocks? I thought that the Corksport shocks had oem fitment, so the front shouldn't be sitting higher like it would be on Koni/Bilstein shocks. Also the Corksport springs lower the front more than the rear. Maybe it just needs time to settle.

    I agree, and am waiting for things to settle...that and I am driving it to make that happen. Right now the car is much more neutral in handling, which is my goal. I am plenty happy with the power this car has and now the torque steer is negligible on acceleration. When the NVH from the motor mounts is balanced a bit more I will look at a cat back exhaust.

    Drop those emblems in a bleach bath for a couple days to strip to bare plastic and then paint.

    Very happy so far with the new Eonon. Seems very fast, very little load or lag time.

    Completed the pivot shaft seal, bearing, and breather. Easier than I thought. Just followed the MS3 how to from MSF. No leaks and shifting smooth!

    The NVH is noticeable in the e-brake handle, but with the stock PMM and CS TMM insert, my NVH has decreased dramatically since I took the DM PMM out. I find it very acceptable and it sure helps decrease the torque steer.

    So you're saying, for a daily driver, DM PMM and CS Stage 2 RMM aren't exactly a good combo when it comes to NVH?

    I DD with DM PMM and CS Stage2. The vibes were noticeably increased when I recently switched from the original CS RMM but they've died down a ton after break-in. Not bothersome to me at all.

    I did the DM PMM and CPE Stg2 RMM, my vibes are not bad at all. Just on accel from a stop it gets a little vibey. I think my tmm is dead though and that is not helping with overall vibes etc. The PMM made a huge diff in traction , the car actually felt slower because I was in control so much more than before. My wife rides in the car and does not have any complaints and she is part of the a car is only for going from a to b crowd.

    I will be getting the DM TMM soon to replace my borked tmm and hoping it does not make it crazy full race car annoying.
