I asked for about a loaner when I dropped it off and was told I didn't qualify because I didn't have the extended warranty.

Are my expectations unrealistic?

If you're paying over 6 grand for a supercharger kit and you can't afford 400-600 for a dyno tune, maybe you should rethink the supercharger.

I've had both mufflers on an otherwise stock exhaust. The Roush mufflers are MUCH louder than the GT500 mufflers. The GT500 mufflers didn't have the volume I wanted. Both have a nice deep sound,...

I bought those 265/40-18 Michelin PSS for the street, they're on a set of 18x10 Forgestar wheels.

All four tires stacked next to my AutoX tires, 285/35-18 RS-3s on 18x10.5 Enkei wheels are less...

I run 18x10 Forgestars with a 43mm offset with no problem. The RTRs have a 45mm offset. I haven't looked at what kind of inside clearance I have to be able to say whether the extra 2mm would be a...

I had significant wheel hop after installing the Konis and ultralights. I'll be installing control arms and brackets this spring trying to at least reduce, and hopefully eliminate it.

This is truth.

With a 'factory' alignment, I would get significantly greater wear on the outside edges of the tires, even rotating regularly.

When you say car wash, are you referring to those automated washes that pull your car through?

If so, The ultralites may be too low. Mine are, but I'm also running lower profile tires.
