[QUOTE=1turbofocus;3387806]Is that the Gen1 or Gen2 FR Manifold , If Gen1 you have to slot the bolt holes to get the manifold to line up with the runners in the head

Looking good

Tom[/QUOTE

Runners don't match but there is no space to slot, the misaligemt is like half the height of the runner, will do custom work on it to fit, had to make a gasket as well. Read a thread you gave all the instructions for the slotting and installing.

for the exterior i say stock is better but i'm inclined to forgive wit hthe power that the car should put down. hopefully you get some miles on that poly bushing kit. ive been wanting to do that to mine (she gets raced a lot so.. yeah bushings might be a bit bad on mine..

Bumpers ruin it for a lot of people, is the ultimate
Ricer kit for our cars, I knew was going to get flamed but don't mind I like them, thought the same of the stripe too.

OEM bushings are really good if they are not worn of course, to remove them they had to be torched, pulled, grinded, etc.huge PITA.

Cool stuff, and we always like pics, even if some of us don't like what we see. Pics on the forum are like a car wreak. You just can't help but look lol

I still like how they look, got yesterday the euro grill, HID's for the fogs and the black mesh but at the end stepping in the pedal will make you forget about how it looks, lol.
