    Nice and well done. Only thing I wanted to ask is about the intercooler hanging a little low below the grill. Did you cut the crash bar? It just look weird to me.

    i actually get that question alot..the crash bar isnt cut at all..which was a descision made by me and my local body tech, its there for a reason, that reason being safety in a front end crash, so its there to stay lol..and to add to that my personal feeling is that removing the bar would make the car unsafe from a unibody standpoint as it is tied into it, so if u auto x it or drive it hard u could twist the unibody with the bar removed or cut.


    edit: found the TIP pic and a few others.. enjoy!

    I understand. That's why I've been contemplating on whether I should get an FMIC or not. I really don't want to cut the crash bar for that reason so that's why I think I'll just go with an upgraded TMIC and go FMIC when I go big turbo or something.

    Not gonna happen.. if my car is rice as u say, then theres alot of riced out MS6's out there, it covers up the UGLY grey wire loom and exposed wires that come stock on the car, im sure if u removed the TMIC before u would see that.. pictures make that blue loom come out really light in color,its all dark blue.. goes with my theme, my goal with the car is to make it be a show car and race car. that engine bay u say is "rice" will hopefully push over 350 AWHP next month on a dyno..

    Overall, I really like the work you've done. The blue isn't for me, but at least you did it completely, so it looks good.

    My own personal dislike is the way you did the exhausts, not using the valence piece. I prefer the cleaner look, but different strokes for different folks. Very nicely written listing too.

    EDIT - I didn't see any pics of the Corksport TBE, but I'd like to see the rear with that installed.

    yes it'll look better soon .. i have the brand new plastic pieces for both sides of the rear bumper coming in along with the bezels, the corksport is said to sit inside the bezels and im going to powdercoat the bezels black.. should look stock looking but it wont be hehe.. ill post the pics up when its all installed, it looks kinda goofy now because the corksport is way smaller then the piece i had cut out for the old exhaust...

    Gary, I'm gonna ask you a really, really lame question:

    What sort of gas mileage are you getting with all these assorted modifications?

    By the bye, I dig the blue accents under the hood.
