Nice post, MM97 :)

Funny, I was gonna "fill in" some info from your last paragraph on post #1, but you beat me to it ;)

I agree with the sub-frames whole-heartedly :D This was the single best upgrade of my entire suspension. I wish I knew about them when I ran around in my Fox body for over 20 years :( The Fox is said to be 25% less stiff than the SN95/New Edge and the S197 is supposed to be 75% (or 125%, I forget) stiffer than those! Think of sub-frames as Viagra® for your pre-'05 Stang :cool: Even Griggs does not do any sub-frame support on the S197, but hey do install a tubular "K" member and certainly helps. Oh, I almost forgot, nowhere on the Griggs site will you even find a strut-tower brace. So if someone wants to sell one for an S197, tell 'em to.... fugettabouttit! :D

Jazzer :)

i like mine to handle to:D

i'll let you know, i'll probably install em this weekend. came out to 140 shipped for the plates and pedals, with a lifetime warranty so it'll probably be good.

yea the drop in is cheaper than the fenderwell one
i had the drop in before, and removed the silencer, but i've wanted that intake since i got the car and because he let it go so cheap i had to buy it. i'll have the drop in filter for sale as soon as i clean it.
