Installed the jms pedalmax. I haven't added the control knob yet thought I would try it without 1st. A quick drive and it definitely gets rid of the dead space.

I had to look up what that thing even was lol. Kinda like a tuner chip, I guess. No install pics? Is it hidden or can you see it in the car?

It's hidden up under the dash. I'll grab a pic in a second. I didn't want to spend money on a tuner/ cai knowing it will be useless once I save up for the whipple. Plus I picked this up used for cheap on another forum.

You can see it tied up in the corner. It's the thing that looks like a computer monitor connector.

Did a little cosmetic mod today. I think it turned out pretty good. My 1st time ever doing this. Taping everything up sucked. Took about an hour to do all 4 wheels. Then another 4 hours of painting. Did 3 coats. Then 2.5 hours of drying before wheels went back on. It was dark when I finished but will get a better picture tomorrow.

That looks great! Color looks pretty much spot on to body color in the pics.

Those calipers look awesome! Only thing i would be worried about would be the brake dust.

Thanks everyone. The color might be a shade or two different than the body color but I can't see much difference even in person. So far the brake dust hasn't been sticking to them. Still nice and bright 4 days later.

I took a road trip this past weekend with 10 other s550 owners. We cruised the 3 sisters in fredricksburg. The route has 300 curves in a 100 miles. We also took some back roads there and back. Cruised between 90-100 majority of the way. I'll get video from the dash cam up after I download it.

Some of the videos turned out pretty cool. Here are a few I still haven't watched all of it. Click on the picture and the video will play.

Started on the steeda diff bushings tonight. I went with the red ones. I took off my exhaust and the steeda IRS support braces to do the install. I ended up having to completely drop the cradle to get the front driver bushing in. The install is not hard juSt a bit tedious doing it alone on jack stands.







I still need to put the exhaust and IRS support braces back on in the morning.

Got a chance to go do a few launches. Car is definitely more planted. I felt 0 wheel hop at this point. Although my crap tires spin like crazy.

Well at 11,000 miles I finally tried out the line lock.




That was enough to finish the pirellis off.


Upgraded to nitto 555 g2 with 275/35/20 all around.

Some steeda goodies showed up. This will be the last pieces to have full steeda suspension.

Got the vertical links installed tonight. This is by far the worst install I've done yet. Took me a little over 2 hours to get the driver side in and about 15 min on the passenger side. I'll be doing the toe links in the morning.

Those parts look great! So the car will have full Steeda suspension soon? Are you considering coilovers?

Got the toe links installed today. Took about an hour. Very easy straight forward install.

Well it now has full steeda suspension. Probably no on the coilovers I can convince myself to spend the cash. I will upgrade the shocks when it's time to replace then though.
