Thanks guys, I am definitely ordering this kit with the sport package. How is installation? Good for a DIY? I can install a stereo, etc, so am hoping this wont be too much more difficult.

Also whats the opinions on engine/tranny wear and tear? Does running it in first gear more often affect this, as well as gas consumption?
The first gear start actually improves transmissions life. Stu Ritter has written about this in the Star Magazine. It is more of a burden to start a car in second gear than in first.
