The first real test drive was today
....... had alot of honey do Saturday after the install job.
First impressions........ Yes there is more vibs felt at idle, but not excessive...... and with the a/c goin' full blast there is barely a hint of a vib at some rpm's. But then again I've been told I'm one of those people that will notice things more than the average person.
The hard launch....... She will slightly haze the left front tire (in the wheel hop manner) but I believe that is just because I run a slightly higher psi in my tires.
The shift up and down........ Well the engine isn't in the bay jumpin' around from the changin' rpm's...... kinda answers itself, nothing is movin' so the shift cable stays put, no flexing and movin' around.
Torque steer........ It's always been there but now it's not as wild, it's more predictable and a lot easier to handle.
Now my personal opinion......... heck of a upgrade ( and on sale! ). If you stop and think 'bout it you have eliminated the first thing the engine does when you get on the go pedal........ it wants to jump up and pitch to the side or front depending on how you look at it.
It's not for everyone but then again the SS isn't something that everyone wants. And for the stage 1 guys it might very well solve boost issues from things goin' bump if you know what I mean.
