Teaser pics. Keep in mind the front lip is not installed, I just had to see what it was going to look like.
















how were you able to get the front lip painted in the ebii? is it possible to order it that way or did you have it painted once delivered after market?

think thats def the best look for the front lip. not sure how i like it when its all black.

I had it painted once it was delivered. Any competent body shop should be able to handle it. Glad you like the paint scheme as the plan was to make it as clean as possible. I didn't want it to look like a bolted on aftermarket part if that makes sense.

Mod update:

So in theory today is the day I get the car back with the lip installed. As I mentioned above here are two pics of the intake. I removed the company logo so it would look cleaner and I like how it's black and blue. Makes it look like it belongs on the car.

Let me know which ones you guys like so I can delete the others. One of the perks of having a journal is being able to post a bunch of horrible pics lol...

Thanks for sharing. I like em all. Keen on the side lips as I don't whether to do the same. So I would take more of those.

Looks just superb and the car isn't bad either lol.

Really nice finish I appreciate you posting.

Ps could I trouble you for some fairly close side view low down to get a good view of how the side lips fit and look please.

Now I just don't know what the h3ll to do with mine! I'm enjoying the stock-ish look with slight mods on mine but I'm thinking those side skirts, front lip and rear diffuser would look really nice on my white!

Awesome pictures. What is your impression of the intake? Do you feel a loss of power or even an increase of power? How does it sound in the cabin? Do you mind making a video for us? I'm really on the fence about this mod.

No problem, glad you like the pics. I will try to get some pics of the side skirts for you. If you take a look at the install instructions of the kit, found on this forum, you will see just how secure the sides are mounted. You can still use the jacking points as well so the actual piece is not that that thick at all.

Yeah it would. Be wary of the mod bug because once it takes hold it's all over lol...

Wouldn't be able to tell you power wise since I did everything within couple weeks and haven't been able to drive it much as I'm getting it ready for the show on Sunday. I also don't know if my other performance mods helped the intake to make more power than it would if only the intake was installed. I bought it purely for the sound and the sound is definietly worth it imo if you can get it for a good deal. You hear the blow off valve now, even with the windows closed.

My friend has a gopro so I should hopefully have a video soon. I can say the sound the car makes has completely changed it's character for the better.

Sounds like a good deal on the intake. You also have the challenge downpipe correct? Do you have a tune yet?
