cool.. where did you pick up he Vorsteiner hood? is it dual sided CF?
its their normal non CF hood, since i was painting it there was no reason to go with the carbonfiber one. I orderd the hood direct from Vorsteiner.

Yea i hear ya, i orderd one with the hood but it wasnt it stock, should be hear soon. I just got to find a place that makes a GOOD carbon front grill. The blacked out grill looks okay but i think the carbon would look much better.

I am looking for the same....I've only seen CF grills made in Hong Kong and are super expensive....let me know when you find a vendor that produces a reliable CF front grill.
Although at the Mfest in Vegas I ran into StealthAuto, and they say they can overlay CF on OEM grills...have to give them a call

Not feeling it,

Suspension is to high,

rubber on wheels is too thick,

hood vents look ricer and u dont have a turbo or supercharger for the benifit so its pointless.

and color, well it reminds me of my red headed freind rusty..

to each his own..im sure others will disagree with me.. these are positive critisizims btw

sigh,

Suspension is stock, rubber is stock, since i have a typhoon the vents in the hood DOES serve a purpose.

Oh and the color is stock but looks a little off due to shop lights.

Thanks for digging up this old thread just to post this crap and waisting space on the site. :cheers:

BTW the site has a spell check so you may want to use it next time. :dunno:

Didnt realize it was an old thread..

Typhoon intake looses HP from what I understand esp from my own experiences with M engines,

Did you get the rubber changed?

Any Better pics of the color as it does look awful in those pics..

Spell check is for when im writing an important document, i could really care less for random forum blabber..

Pics were done with a phone camera and i agree they are not good. The Typhoon does make power when moving but it comes at the cost of a CEL on startup. Car made 455rwhp with the typhoon and evo pulley. With Dinan software, exhaust and mids it made 470rwhp. I'm sick of the CEL from the K&N and am taking it off this weekend and going back to stock boxes with BMP filters.

Here is a current pic of the car, i cant lower it anymore due to my driveway. Its setup to my taste and sorry if your not liking it. THe stock tires are almost done and will go with PS2's.

Nice ride Bro. Whats up with these suspension freaks?! Do you really think dropping the car a few centimeters is that damn important. It's a pain in the ***, expensive, and serves little purpose. It's a GT dude, not a GT3 that is going to spend every moment on a track. I get irritated with some guys always blabbering about dropping cars. to top it off, it's almost barely perceptible to everyone but the biggest gear heads! The car looks fine Bro. The stock tires are fine and the suspension looks fine. Some folks are just too critical. I don't know where you could live with the car any lower than it is with that huge lip. Certainly not here in Chicago. That **** would be sitting on the side of the road after one pothole. Let's try to be a bit practical..shall we:rolleyes:
