I think you're confusing REAL RS parts with the USDM-converted versions. The Extreme Dimensions bumper was molded from a used urethane F2 (now GPwerks) bumper.....they just messed up in their molding process causing the extreme fitment issues people are having with that bumper. The F2 (GPwerks) and E.D. bumpers were designed to mimic the styling of the RS, while retaining use of the USDM turn signal lights, crash bar, and impact foam.....in an effort to cater to a clientelle that does not want to modify the foam and bar to fit true RS bumpers and source the correct lighting from abroad.

That said.....there's at least 4 or 5 SVT's that have been converted to REAL RS bodywork running around the USA, I'm one of them.
