Talking GE8 Mod Report, Whats working for me w/ VIDEO!

So I don't post much, but have been doing all my research here on FF. So its time to return the favor and let you know what HAS been working for me. Most of this info it already out there but I feel this is a good testament to my own experience.

2010 FIt Sport

Suspension- Eibach Pro-Kit with OEM shocks.

Ride quality is just a tiny bit firmer than stock and really helps with fast corners and sprinted driving.

Wheels and Tires - Enkei J-Speed 15x7 +38 & BFG G-Force Sport 205/50


Before I got the 15x7's I was running 16x7 +38 205/50 and would only rub fully loaded, this combo still works just need to be careful not to take tight corners too fast, but whats the fun in that!

Also I need to add the weight savings (Almost 6lbs per wheel/Tire combo) really helped out with acceleration and overall performance, Smaller is better!

Custom Exhaust - Full Cat back system using 2.5" tubing, Straight though Dynomax muffler and resinator

Sounds is great, almost too quite but I do enjoy the fact I can still listen to the radio and hear my GF talk.

I have a 45 mile commute (each way) and I look forward to getting in my little car and taking her for a spin every morning. I attached some links to my videos, gives you a good idea what the car looks like in terms of the stance and overall appearance.

Thanks & Enjoy...

Nice work, like the final cut. What are names of artist/ song? Also, do you have a few still images of your car for reference of wheel/suspension? Thanks.

Where did you get your exhaust system work done? Are you located in La Mesa, San Diego County?

I will post some photos soon, as for the exhaust I had my work done here...

Ed Hanson's Muffler Service - Spring Valley, CA

Ed is a great guy and I highly recommend this work. I got exactly what I asked for and than some. This is not just some crappy muffler shop they do custom work for all types of cars.
