I'd be getting the V3s, but what would really sell me is if they come out with an EDFC like system. Maybe I'd go with a spring shock combo if magnetic control is offered- that is if the range and controller for the shocks perform.
Two of my buds run the FLT-A2s and for having a stiffer spring rate than my Flex, they ride amazingly smooth- much better than the Flex IMO. That said, IMO I have a lot of NVH coming into the cabin via the pillowball mounts, so its a civilize mod for me to change that.
someguy, do you run a cat? I hate the smell of non-catted exhaust so I have two. I also have a resonator and muffler in my 3", the exhaust noise is very tame.
I wonder if ISX50 seats fit, those are pretty comfy and offer both heat and cooling. I can get measurements later tonight on that front- I would imagine they won't clear the Bpillers- we have a very limited range of seat options...
At the age of this car, I bet a refresh on the motor mounts could provide a change as well. Chassis stiffening could help too, apparently the more rigid the frame, the more harshness gets absorbed into the suspension vs. becoming movement in the cab. If you have a welder and you have the carpet up already for installing more sound deadening, maybe a tack here and there would help.
My short shifter transmits a lot of noise into the cabin as well. I think the carlsport has material to address this, but he doesn't make SS's anymore. Might have to put the OE back in if I get annoyed.
My clutch is due, the W55 has held up because the clutch is the first point of failure. Hearing how R154s shift, I'm willing to throw some money into testing for the community and have my W55 shot peened by a local company (WPC). The Company feels that if the trannies are failing around 300 rwtq, then after the treatment it could be good for 400+ rwtq. This way, the OEM teeth that are made more for quiet operation vs. strength can stay that way, yet be strengthened and the ratios stay the same. If your a manual (and I know your boosted) this is an option to retain the OEM fitment, feel and sound of W55 while being at higher power levels, and the pricing isn't nearly as bad as a tranny swap.
If you haven't done Figs hood props yet, they are a very nice touch and I'm looking forward to trunk props if they come out.
