Powell's CABs arent going to make the drive worse, they'll help with wheel hop and torque steer (doesn't get rid of all of it just most). They affect the comfort of the driving less than the trans mounts.

They're not going to cause excess vibration or make the ride worse.

i didnt notice any difference in in vibrations with these. they tightened up the front of the car and the steering feels a bit more responsive. i recommend either powell or ottp if your gonna go through the trouble of doing it.

installed the high rise wing today. got it from a member in maryland. used 3m double sided tape and have not noticed any vibration up too 85 mph so far. i like the high rise. i feel like its one of the things that makes an ss what it is.

Be careful with the tires, if they start to break free it can turn into wheel hop quickly. Car looks nice.

im hoping the mounts and control arms help prevent the hopping. id like alittle spin off the line to prevent dead hooking or bogging it. its gonna take some time to figure out the sweet spot for sure. i want that 12 second quarter mile. once i do that then im gonna upgrade to the 7163.

wrapped the upper charge pipe today with boost monkeys heat reflective tape. gonna try it out and see if it helps with the heat soaking issues i have been having. debating on wrapping the intake tube but unsure if it would be worth doing.

I run a cai and typically I see about 8-10 hotter at a stoplight with temps in the 80's. But that's a different setup than you.
