I just got ome from having the FSD koni's installed on my '04 32' Brave, W20 chassis. They do indeed smooth things out a lot. I hardly knew the joints in the roadway were there. The handling in a curve seems to have improved also. I figure if Koni's are good enough for Formula 1 racers they are good enough for me. I am still working on my downshifting technique though so I can get through the turns a little faster.

I also have had the Ultrapower reprogramming done and coming home there is a 6% or 8% grade, not quite sure which, and I pulled it in cruise at 60 in 4th gear with only a momentary slowdown to 55. No toad but still pretty impressive for just a reprogramming and the cold air intake system.

I also have the Banks but that has been on for about 2 years and I was not able to duplicate todays performmance with the Banks alone. I would have had to put my foot in it a lot more.
