thanks im kind of torn in between keep moding for speed or just leave it as is and make it more of a pimp ride like with some 22"s i have a freind that will do some custom interior work..i have 2 other cars that are DD's so if i decide to mod it for speed or looks either way i dont have to depend on it to drive everyday..with my current mods even with a set of 22's id still walk a stock riv,i know how modding for fast 1/4 mile times can be addicting and very expensive, lol been down that route many times,any thoughts?
