So, here's an update-

I went out last night and decided I wanted to get these plugs done. Two were still pretty tight.

I was able to spin all the rest out, 100% intact, with a 3/8" drive...

It looks like through a little bargain shopping I can put together a complete set of Koni STR.T's and GT500 strut mounts for right around $400.

Seeing as my factory struts & shocks have 80K on...

I tried to start working on this Sunday and the plugs wouldn't even budge at 35 ft-lbs (probably didn't help that it was around 30 degrees outside).

I'm gonna start it and run it either tonight or...

It's due to how the smart junction box works (this is what I heard elsewhere)...it doesn't just cut power like a switch, instead there's always a small trickle of power going to the socket.

Basically the 18x10 rears would stick out an inch further than the stock wheels I have now, that would probably look dumb.

How would +25 offset wheels fit?

I found some awesome wheels that I really like-- XXR 521's. They have them in 18x10 and 18x8.5, but they only come in +25mm offset (well, the 8.5's are also available in a +32mm offset).

Would...

If the threads are stripped, Loctite may hold it for awhile but there's a good chance the bolts will still come out. Just keep an eye on it.

With the engine more or less "stock" I so far prefer the sound of the 4.6 (with an H pipe and chambered mufflers). But, that's because the 4.6 still uses the 5.0 HO/351W firing order, vs. the new 5.0...

Going a size up won't help unless he drills it out and runs a tap in there.

BTW, James did you try running an M8-1.25 tap into those holes? How do the threads on the bolts look?

There are no resonators on anything before a '10 or '11 as far as I know.

Removing the cats will make it WAY louder. You might consider a high flow catted midpipe of some sort.
