Thanks for the comments guys. I plan to paint the valve cover wrinkle black with polished letters that's about it for the engine bay. I like to keep the car clean and stock(ish) looking. The only think I want to play with painting is the interior still not sure what I want to do yet though.

The next mod is gonna be a SVT lip, I just bought one from shaun and I'm currently waiting for it to arrive.

I got the lights off ebay. I'll try to see if I can find the seller, my lights aren't HID just H4s. I believe I paid around $100 shipped for the housings.

Nice job man. Won't the SVT lip hide the missing chunk? Have you considered getting a headlight resto-kit to polish the fogs so they look just as clean and sexy as those headlights? Those clean and subtle mods really takes your car up a few nothces, i like it

SVT lip attaches to the bottom of the bumper. Thanks for the comments.


I'll have to measure the filter I don't remember.

Some performance dampers, matching mirror caps, maybe an OEM wing painted body color, and that valve cover like you were saying would be perfect.. the Svt lip too! Plz put up a how to on that when you do it! :)

I've thought about a OEM spoiler but I think I'm going go to leave it wing less. If I change my mind later I'll have holes in the trunk. I like the look of the trunk with no wing it has that little swoop up anyways.

I second the painted mirror caps. It adds so much to the car and still looks OEM.
