Put the FR500 steering wheel and the Cobra floor mats in today. I really like the wheel - much thicker and more comfortable than the original. Kind of like adding a good wrap over the stock wheel. And yes Edmond - I took some pics and make a note of the tools I used. You may finally have a tech write up soon.

Thinking about real mods and re-read the FR500 exhaust review in MMFF. The guy in that article was putting down similar number to mine pre install. Post install he was putting down 287.6 horsepower and 292.2 lbs.-ft.of torque. Things that make you go hmmm.

KICK A$$... finally a tech write up...(mike owes me plenty of those :doubt: )
I have the FR500 catback, it made about 10rwhp and 9 rwtq, but if you ask Sherri, "it doesn't sound mean" :p

It was a present, but it was about 180 dollars. I also had the Tri-ax shifter listed, but the wheel was cheaper :). Figured it was good present material. I would probably never have bought it for myself, but still wanted one.
