The actual modification took very litle time. Most of the time was spent gabbing about cars, jobs, etc. and discovering that we all had lots of common interests. It was a fun time.
We did Adam's car first and he declared the mod a success after a short drive around the neighborhood. He said it made a dramatic difference. Next we did Leigh's car. Fresh from the experience of doing Adam's, the 2nd car went much more quickly.
Then it was off to the end of the street for a quick photo opportunity:

Next, we had lunch at a charming little restaurant in Maplewood called American Fare, which is famous for its wonderful meatloaf.

After lunch, we did some car swapping so we could compare modifications. I handed Adam the key to my car which has the UUC shifter so Adam could decide if he liked it. He did. Then my wife, Maria, took a drive in Leigh's car, which was equipped with the Dinan Stage III suspension. Her comment when she returned, "Do it!"
So, I guess the next modification on my to-do list (after the Porsche brakes) is a suspension upgrade. That was an expensive ride Maria took! :-)
All in all it was a fun day and I enjoyed getting to meet a couple members of this message board.
