can you tell a difference at all? I've heard stories saying yes and no
yes I have notice a difference but whether its for good or bad I'm not sure yet. First thing I notice is how stiff the car feels. From the steering wheel, shifter, gas pedal and even the brakes. Before everything felt loose but now it feels tight. More of a solid feeling. When it comes to accelerating the car feels slighty slower but then again honestly I can't tell. The exhaust note has gotten deeper but not by much. Enough to notice a difference. Overall I am pleased with the mod. Next is the ETD.

Installed my BC coilovers last night. Still need to get them set so everything is completely even and figure out where I should set the shocks.

Not hard at all... it's keeping them that way that's the headache. Between the sun and the stone chips, unavoidable w/every day driving, you'll have your hands full.
If you plan to strip the chrome plating first, there's a How-To on here somewhere...? I did and just left them that way. It's gives you kind of a marbled effect which I thought just different enough.
As much as I liked the look of the deep red I had mine, it was taking way too much time and energy to keep mine in that color... 3-4 times a year and an all-day/two-day affair.
