    In response to anyone asking about getting a 4.0 in place of a 3.8... do it. $1000 tops (including install labor for gears) in bolt on's to have the car running VERY low 14's in full street trim. They are a very solid and comfortable ride, plus regardless of mixed emotions within this forum... it seems that S197's turn alot more heads.

    Black on black, lowered, with black or gunmetal rims = drool.

    yeah, nothing turns more heads than a High School Girl's car.

    the S197 doesnt handle like a truck. it is far superior to the SN95 (stock for stock)

    you said the new ones are like the old ones, and listed bad qualities about them. if the new ones are not like the old ones, then why did you even bring the old ones up?
