While I like my F2 bumper, I've had a handful of issues (most of them self-inflicted). They are:
-Trying to rattle can paint it myself without enough base or clear coat.
-Not being persistent enough with the shop who painted it after that and getting a cheap paint job (in price and quality)
-Not checking how big the opening was before ordered new mesh that wasn't big enough.

One of these days I plan on giving the bumper some nice TLC i.e. sanding it all the way down to the urethane and starting from scratch on the paint job.

Spec stage 2 clutch and flywheel....ended up being $1600 in labor because of spec crappy quality.

Right now i am regretting the combo of my cosworth CAI, 67mm tb, and cosworth IM on my 2.0. Way too much air. Hopefully some tune revisions will help.
