Nice mods, might be an idea to move your airfilter to somewhere, where it can get a good feed of nice cold air, where it is it will suck in all that nasty hot engine air.
Maybe a flexi pipe down to behind the grill?

thanks for the info. i have been wanting to get a set but the dealer is miles and miles away from where I live.

how much did the springs drop your car by? 1/2 inch? Is the ride harsher now?
