    No cutting. The car was stupid low with drop spindles and lowering springs when I got it... mashed down on the bump stops low. Now with the 5660s and the drop spindles the car has actual suspension travel. However, I am going to replace the 5660s with the 5664 springs in the near future.

    Great. What's the reason for the 5664 spring

    Drove it to work today and it made it (gasp!)

    Been doing a bit of tuning and logs. It has enough HP now to spin in 2nd gear and (maybe?) bottom of 3rd. Tough to tell. It wheel hops all over, needs some boxed lower arms I think.

    Redoing the front suspension was worth it. Rides much better and although it is firm, it is much more comfy than my 4th gen. 275's up front road hunt and i think 245's would be better. Real alignment wouldn't hurt either.

    My changes this winter did something though
    -Went from 10.5psi to now 7psi with the new cam
    -IAT's would start at 120 and the highest I saw was 140. I was at like 160-210 before the intercooler so it did help!
