Got my NGK plug wires and Arospeed tower bar installed, and today my whiteline rear sway bar just came in, so I'll have time to install it (hopefully) tomorrow after work.

here's some pics of the NGK plug wires and arospeed tower bar in my cam:





and I also got a better pic of my CAI, which is:



next week I should be getting my muffler so I can finally do my catback as well. :)

Oh yeah, I'd like to thank sean for the incrediblely fast service on my rsb. :thumbup:

magnaflow 14848 with a glasspack and 2.25" mandrel bent tubing, I need to figure out what glasspack I'm going to get though.

The Arospeed bar I ordered directly from arospeed. :)

sorry for this noobish question but what is a tower bar?
what does it do for your car's performance?
does it prevent the swaying in turns giving you a better handling?

it's the bar that goes between the strut mounts. it reduces body roll.

does it improve handling on turns or handling in general?
also, is there a specific brand i should look for in purchasing this?

It reduces body roll. Less body roll means the weight is more equally disributed between the wheels giving you better traction and better handling.

Brand doesn't really matter. Just make sure it is a Full circle that covers the strut tower. There are some cheap ones out there that are a half crecent that don't do anything. Ebay ones for example are usually crap.

I know the tip won't, but I plan on having the muffler itself pushed out further to compensate. :)

edit: just PM me with your new AIM name.

can someone give me a good site to buy front and back struts?
there's a lot of places you can buy struts from, it depends on the kind you want, there's monroe (essentially OEM), tokico (very stiff) and KYB GR2's (stiffer than OEM but much softer than Tokico's).

ctmotorsport.com offers the tokico's, sparkplug.com offers the KYB's and your local autozone or advance auto will sell you monroe.

well, which brand do you favor the most?
In struts? I'm going to get tokico's, but I don't mind a stiff ride, I'm actually looking forward to it. Just expect to feel the bumps in the road quite well if you get stiff struts with lowering springs. :)
