Picked up a chest of drawers from a neighbor, fit no problem in the back. Took family to dinner at the local Mexican restaraunt in record time. Got groceries. Laughed at a V-6 Challenger that revved up beside me at a stop light.

Did you do it yourself, [MENTION=739]Disneymike[/MENTION]?
Yes. Trying to get the covers back on was the hardest part but anybody with any skills can do this without paying the dealer
$200 plus for labor.

I'll be doing the plugs in a couple of days. Any tips? I've watch the YouTube a million times and still worried I might break something lol

Did you have a shop install the springs? I've ask an Express tire if they can install springs on the stinger and they wanted $600! "Because its new"

Chip is super easy to install. Almost no way to mess it up. Just make sure to zip tie everything away from any belts. And I'd definitely recommend swapping your spark plugs. Good luck! :)

I meant the spark plugs. How long did it take you?

Ah, I have the 2.0 so it was very straight-foward, probably only about 15 minutes. The 3.3 is apparently much more of a task. There are a few good write ups here if you need more info.

I have been looking at those. Do you have any photos? How does it compare with the stock ride?

Rides great. Really stiffens up the suspension without being harsh.

I had Les Schwab here in Sacramento do the install and alignment. With springs and all labor cost $640.

This pic is a little overdue, crappy lighting outside today, too.

So far I have the roof wrapped, wheels blacked, windows tinted, rebadged, and LAP3/spark plugs installed. Waiting on the exhaust, then probably intake and intercooler after that.

What did they charge you to wrap the roof?
