    CoolModification update.

    Just a short note on modifications to the Caddy. First, OEM Fog lights installed. (Used seperate switch) However factory steering column switch will be installed. The thumbnail switch will then be used to control the front LEDS. Brake duct grilles installed. Be aware that the E&G grilles use double sided 3M tape which do not make a complete contact with the bezels. We utilized some fine chrome plated stainless steel wire to help secure in place. (No you cannot see the additional wire.) Third, side molding 98% finished, waiting for the front Calgon Bra to arrive before during front wheel lips. Fourth, all Weather Tech floor and trunk liners are in. Fifth, installed the DashHawk II, works great. Future parts (within next 2 weeks) to be ordered include the fine wire mesh front grilles, and the rearview mirror bracket for the Radar Detector. (Yes, it will be hot wired into the mirrors' power supply.) This will pretty much finish phase I . Phase II will be the CAI and plenium gasket. (Would like to add the dual exhaust but really have not check out the $$$ involved. Phase III will be upgrading the FE1 to FE2 suspension. (Shocks, struts and sway bars) Phase IV wil be upgrading to 18" rims and tires if needed. Would like to change the steering rack over to the performance one but I cannot locate costs of the parts needeed. Also looking at the performance bradkes but won't be untill the OEM are ready for replacement. ........What I wish for, a turbo kit or supercharger for the 3.0 or even a tune.

    Sounds promising. Is the V sway bar any better than all of the others?
