Yup the lunch box is my next plan. Where did u get what ever u used.

2002greenzx3 09-10-2012 12:27 AM

advanced auto or pep boys. i used a 18" flex pipe, which i epoxyed to prevent rust, and a 3.5" tip. plus a few exhaust clamps and hangers

stealthzx3 09-10-2012 12:32 AM

very nice. i can get a set of the svtc wheels for a good deal, but they're only 16"s :(

2002greenzx3 09-10-2012 12:38 AM

i got mine because they were a real good deal, with brand new tires, they're unique, and because they were 16's. tires are cheaper lol.
