true. i think the only difference sometimes thats noticeable to me is when choosing 17's or 18's. sometimes either look to small or too big

Very true...when I swapped from the 18s to the 17s I didn't like them.The car almost looks too big to o'clock 17s when dropped.

Second trip to hybrid-racing


This time around i made the trip to help compare there intake to the others on the market.I couldnt pass up a chance to help a company develope parts as well as the 8th community.

Bumper off and suspension raised!Ready for the dyno.You can get a clear shot at them 235/40 falken rt615ks that gave me a hard time all the way up and down I-10.I never hydroplaned so much.

Loaded up on the dyno ready to do some work.Russ from hybrid posted the results earlier 236/156 for those that just want the numbers.



There not the greatest videos ive taken but i was flatout tired.


Some pics of the test intake installed on my car.After installing my intake i slid back to H-town just in time for work.

Lmk if you sell your intensity! I was about to order one, but figured I could help you out and buy yours if you want to sell it lol. Wish I had enough dough for the hybrid racing though.

Stiffening up the Hasports

after a phone call to hasport i learned that in the 8th gen kit no matter what durometer you chose the rear mount always comes with 62a inserts.If you look thru my builds list you'll see im using 88a.After pressing out the original 62a insert i noticed it was ridiculously soft compared to the 88a insert.
Before

After

As you can see the regular style insert fits perfectly!

You can see here that the shoulder i thought would interfere starts right where the 62a insert starts to taper.



All in all i think it was a worthwhile swap.Theres not much more vibration than usually other than on throttle.And i can now punch it in 5th and the engine doesnt move as much.I also have ultimate racing aluminum inserts in my front mount which is injected as well.
