I can't deny that that way of doing it looks good too, but painted blue looks a lot different (if done well) than flat black plastic. It's all just my opinion, but I've never liked anything that looks like plastic on my car, I'd rather have everything a gloss color of some sort.

Ahh, I see you're right about painting it - just either needs to be painted the body-color, or black - def not some random color lol

Yea it's not even bolted to the corner yet I wanted to let it sit over night before I messed with it so I would have time to dry. I'll run a screw through it tomorrow and that'll pull it in better on that side. I'll prolly leave it black plastic and do the plastic skirts. I'm getting a wrecked SVT rear from a friend that I'm going to hack up and make a SVT rear later.

That will be sweet, I remember someone doing an SAP rear on a first gen(sorry but 05-07 are 1.5 gens) So an SVT rear on your sedan will look real good

how do you like the filter on the stock intake? does it change the performance at all? and also did you need a coupler to connect it?

It seemed to help make it more peppy and you can hear the car inhale now. No I just got the filter the same size of the MAF and attached it.
