    I would love to, but probably not anytime soon. With the Buddy Club already on there it just doesn't make sense to go to the Acuity before a number of other things. Next is gonna be DP. I was gonna hit up Procivic like you'd suggested, but by the time I went to see what they had, the only thing that's listed on their site is the Magnaflow DP.

    Ahh woot ! We aren't alone ;-) I'm waiting for Pro Civic to get back from lunch, so I can see if they still have what parts I am looking for from them today.

    Congrats on your purchase today !

    Let's just say....... As long as they have what I'm looking for in stock, I will be one or two steps closer to completing Lucille's suspension setup 100% :)

    Progress 22mm Rear Sway Bar installed with @ron v.

    Only did about 15 miles, but hot damn it handles so much better. I'm glad that the RSB was installed prior to any other suspension upgrades. Being able to tell the difference with just the one upgrade was AWESOME. People say that this upgrade is one of the most bang for your buck upgrades and I'd be hard pressed to disagree.

    Energy suspension bushings and moog end links make the 22mm solid progressive sway bar work even better. The bushing that come with the sway bar are not as good as well as the stock end links. I have to agree, 22mm progressive actually turn the car into a sports car. I would say the hasport engine mounts and this sway bar are the two best things to add. It takes grease for the bar to slide better and work better too. I just got the acuity shifter collar fixed too-change the tranny oil too-very easy now with a acuity CAI intake. Add the tranny fluid from the top 2 qts exactly after draining fluid. cnt catted down pipe $289 and its 3" working fine

    So happy for you ! How long did it take you guys to do the exchange? It is hard for me to imagine the result I will experience after having both chassis and subframe suspension kit installed already. I can't wait to have mine install soon enough. Congrats on your new setup !

    That exhaust looks huge in the end, I am glad I choosen just a 3.5 exhaust tip-It almost looks like mine came with the car from the rear. On the side passenger side you can clealy see its a custom exhaust which i think looks perfect. my car is so shiny that you can see my skinny legs reflecting back. I don't like the fart can look.

    And guess what? It's loud too!

    My UR has two small muffler or resonators so the end muffler doesn't have to be so big-I think that is a good idea and spreads the weight more evenly, it is also noisy buit mostly in a good way. Just barely would pass a cop noise test. It's also a full 3". I take a pic of the side look because i think its very nice showing off that hand poslish SS
