Mmstsx, your car is a beast and you're not even done modding it (read you're planning on SC). Mind me asking what your occupation is? I mean, you've probably spent over 50K altogether including the cost of the car. You're a legend in my books.I bought mine brand new in 08, paid full sticker price.
and I quickly ended up spending more than I paid for the car in mods, even
though I paid out the ass for the car.
doesn't matter what the car costs, even if it's 30k+. if you have the money
to mod, you'll probably spend it.
omg, i didnt even know bout most of those suspension replacements :Ohaha. yeah, I'm far from done with the car, lots to go.
and yeah, I'm over 50k for sure.
for now I'll put the m62 on while I finish up the body.
I still need a new hood and I need to attach my spoiler.
I need a new set of wheels too, well always, lol.
I'll probably end up taking my comfort sports off and switching
to some kind of other suspension. maybe air, maybe some
sort of hybrid, not too sure there. something not too heavy I hope.
of course the motor will be pulled probably sooner rather than later.
I'm all over the damn place picking a new car, but as soon as I have
one in my possession, I can really tear the TSX apart. I probably won't
put the stock motor back, I'll swap something or another in there. even
if it's just a spoon k-series or something, not sure.
thing is with the TSX is that power is not the goal. so it has to be approached
a bit differently. I read the OP saying that his TSX has some terrible body roll.
well that's just unacceptable. to me, if I feel any body roll that's not super minimal,
it's not acceptable. not on the TSX anyway.
so stuff like sway bars, chassis bracing, good coilovers and a nice low stance and
whatnot are pretty important I think. if I were to start fro scratch, I would start
there. I would start by replacing my front a-arms with the spoon ones, putting on
the spoon zero bump steer kit, putting on a rear lower camber/toe kit, putting a thick
sway bar in the back with some awesome bushings, putting on adjustable rear end links,
putting on full chassis bracing, and putting on some quality coilovers.
I would do that before touching the rims/tires and before buying a body kit. once you
have your suspension in line, next for me would be some lightweight quality high performance
tires wrapped around some lightweight forged rims. and then after that, body kit, etc.
I'm drunk and rambling woooo... and the ufc sucked tonight, boo.
oh yeah, occupation. real estate. investing and sales, leaning more towards investing
these days. simple concept really:
buy house or multi-family dwelling.
renovate it fully, make it very nice, top quality everything.
rent out property for high end rent to high end tenants.
collect usually problem free rent on properties forever.
fix things when needed, but that's rare, it's all new.
