Corvettes run that set up. Shouldn't be dangerous, but I don't see the benefit.

I've heard arguments both ways on the benefits of lsds, my personal feeling is that you can still kick out the back end without it, and for 99% of driving on the street you'll never notice it's not...

I've got the Thule 753 roof rack, and really like it. Uses the factory mounting points so no paint contact, Thule velo vise trays are really nice, and it fits the lines of the car well. I've added a...

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. I really like FI, and the 335 is not tuned to the limit like the M3 is.

Interesting that you think a SC 325 would be higher maintenance than an M3. I suppose...

You don't know what mods the car had either. There used to be a stock looking Prelude around here with a turbo that would put the smack down on just about anything.

Lowered or not you should always keep the outer diameter the same when plus sizing. You'll throw off the speedo and other sensors if your wheels are too big or too small.

Looking at keeping the outer diameter the same I personally think that 19" just doesn't leave enough rubber to protect the rim and cushion the ride.

The amp bracket is annoying but easily fixable.
