Payment has been sent for a vibrant strut bar from @filthaypinoy206, and waiting for one white and one red forum decal in the mail!

Spread those forum decals as much as you can. I try to encourage everyone serious about their builds to rep the forum, and the decal is small enough that it isn't obnoxious rice.

Think a white one in the back under the 3rd brake light and a red one somewhere on the front of the car is enough?

I have a white one right under the 3rd brake light on my glass. Have a spare, and one more for my tool box.

I figure one is plenty.

So you finally got your thread started! Can't wait to see where you take it. As for the forum decal, it's winter time here so still haven't "installed" it but defs worth the 5$ :).

Just put in my motor mount!!!! Quite possibly the best 100 dollars I have ever spent on my car. It has this nice satisfying kick/vibration when I start it up and on shifts. It is pretty loud but only when I'm up or down shifting, and its a nice low rumble. Cruising is fine, so the girlfriend and sisters won't be too upset :p but, I don't even want to do my resonator delete because it sounds so good with this :) no louder on the outside of the car, btw, only the inside. anyway, performance-wise: wheel hop, gone. None whatsoever lol. I've tried but I cant do it :p the engine does not move. Very happy with it :) JBR ftw!

Love my JBR RMM. If my ROCA PMM bites the dust, I'll be looking to JBR to replace that one too.

With every JBR product I get, which isn't that many so far, I like them more and more.

I'm expecting my forum decals and strut bar in the mail this week!! Woot! Then I'm gonna let my bank account recover for a while ;)

I am really loving my car after the shocks and control arms are fixed... honestly its moved springs down on the priority list.

I think next on the list is the JBR rear sway and urethane bushings on the front and a few other places. I'll see how the basically new end links hold up before upgrading those. I have so many projects laying around that I need one more part or piece to be able to put on my car.

Drove a big slow box truck with flatish tires that pulls hard to the left all day today going to buy pallets. When I got in my car at the end of the day around 7:45pm I felt like I was driving a racecar. Jus sayin.
