Yea That would be me.... Well not many people around my area know much on tuning an AEM standalone. But maintenance (o2 sensors, spark plugs etc...) can be covered.

I do intend to see where the money went from time to time ("aka beating on it")

For the bushings I think I am extremely lucky, I never got an email reply that I sent out 2 weeks ago. But I placed an order for the Daizen control arm bushings and steering wheel bushings on May 30th, order processed by the 1st of June, and Jeff should have it at his house by today (3rd of June). A total of 5 days from process to arrival.

Beats... 56 days of waiting....

Congrats, that is a hell of a setup. Throw on a Vertex kit and it will be Jeff's car all over again.

Make sure you record the reactions of every person that you give a ride in your GS when its done, including your own reaction. I remember I was giggling like a school girl the first time I went for a spin. That would be a fun video to share with all of us .

I think I would be home by the 20-21 latest.

Pics of the parts should be coming up soon. I asked Jeff to help me update the thread with the pics.

Will do...

I think Jeff's ride is way more sophisticated than mine, I am simply for show.

Oh yea, first time having a powerful car. Can't wait....

The reaction you had, will be the same that I will have, or anyone else for that matter.
