Arrow Think I'm doing it right

After reading a lot and asking a lot of questions I think the tuning of my viggen is going well. I have the steering rack brace, rear sway bar, and top strut mount. All are very important. Also the car has the gs v2 dp and bsr cat back love the sound! I have installed a ets Fmic and a aem wide band.

I have he stage3 soft where and the 3.5fpr just waiting for better wether to install.

I'm waiting for my aem turbo gauge to come it and the gs trany mount

Can you think if i missed any thing....no lease let me know I want to do this right. Thanks

How many miles?
I'd suggest some more aggressive front pads, and perhaps the 300mm rear brake upgrade. Might be time to start looking at springs, shocks and poly bushings as well.
Oh, and the 6-point subframe brace.

87xxx miles are on the car. Sorry I did not say but I just re-did that control are with poly bushing.

I was thinking about doing the brakes thus summer. The 6 point I was looking it to but not sure.

They drop the car to much for me to drive every day driving.

Can get the shocks without the springs. Wont lower the car but will still help stiffen everything up.

Yes, Koni's with a rear bar, rack brace or bushing, is a major improvement, even if you don't do the springs.
