Ok guys, I'm done with my FD mods for now, just had the springs installed 2 days ago. So here is my review:
1- DBW- Not a "must have", but a "don't buy a CC without it". It's truly amazing, it makes the car easier and pleasant to drive in traffic and more agressive when driven hard. Yes, it's that good! For some reason that I can't explain makes the car feel like it has more torque. If you have a CC, buy it now. Right now. If you are considering buying a Maserati, with the DBW I like the CC better than the Manual.
2- Springs- If you have a Coupe is a "must have" - "don't buy a Coupe without it", but if you have a GS it's "just" a "must have". I have a GS and I'm very glad I got it. Now my car rides completely flat, no body roll. I remember people talking about the car not moving back and forward when accelerating or braking and I couldn't understand. Now I can. The car doesn't move, but it's not any harsher. Again, believe me, it's that good!
I also lowered the car 1". Again, before I thought the car looked pretty good, but now it looks awesome! I'll post pictures tomorrow.
3- Tubi- In terms of performance, the car revs a lot easier now, it rides pass 4-5k rpm very smoothly, sometimes I don't even notice that I'm driving at 5k rpm, before the car would struggle a little around 4k and then would take off. Now it's revs smoothly form 2k all the way to 8k rpm.
Sound- Well... it sounds awesome! But loud. As I mentioned in another thread, adults think it's too loud and I should go back to OEM, and kids think it's awesome and begg me to keep it like that. For now I'm keeping it, because it does sound awesome and I like the way the engine revs freely. But there is a chance I'm moving back to OEM...
4-EMC- I haven't notice any difference in performance. First I thought I did, but it was actually the DBW. But Jeff thinks he's sent me the wrong one, for QP, and he's already shipped a new one to me, so I'll install it on Monday and let you guys know.
5-BMC Air Filter- The only thing I've noticed was the car got louder and pops more. But I'm sure it's worth it, the problem was I installed everything at once, so it was hard to know what did what...
That's all for now, but I'll have more updates and pictures in the next few days.
PS- Next mods: brakes and sway bars. And tinted windows, of course.
