Not with that turbo position.

I was saying that tower braces will not work with the HKS and T25 setup. Atleast when I just went and looked I don't see them working to well with it though they might be alright. Most everything I read says that tower braces aren't worth it. Many of them don't do what they are supposed to and just cause the car to push. You'd be better of getting FM rails or something instead. I've done none of these mods myself though so i'm just speaking from what i've read.

Driving hard on fucked up raods bumpsteer etc. Yeah they are not as linear as before and i don't get the rigth feel from them. + while driving at 120+ i notice the rebound is alot less predictable than it was before. Could have something to do with my evasive manuevers to aviod a 80 mph braodside from a suv as i merged onto a louisville highway. sideways at 80 mph and then into the median with no damage other than my nerves or shocks.
**** for 1K $ i would go with some teins. **** that.

i have the cheapo tokico HP (non-adjustable, shock & spring) package. I think i picked them up brand new under 300 bucks. I love them....stiff enough for some autox (about 1/8-1/4" drop) but soft enough for daily driving. We'll see how they hold up in the long run. I can't believe there is anything better out there for a person on a budget.

+1

I wouldn't touch Tokico, and AGX (which I have) are ok but I would have rather gotten Koni yellows.

You kind of need a plan what you want to do with the suspension later down the road. Everything effects everything else.
