Well, my take on the situation is - I've already lost 2 gear sets including a stock set and a cryo treated stock set... Do I really want to lose a set of the old RA gears that were still decent? Anything CAN and WILL help, right? Well - next mod for me is going to be the 10.9 hardware along with some braces from jhargis.
I basically don't want to lose another gearset and I am trying to prevent paying for PPGs at all costs. The longer I can make my **** last - the longer I can put off dropping 5 grand or more on another gearset.
