the only thing keeping me from doing the 16s is they are heavy!!!! they weigh more than my stockers.


but that is a good idea. i really hate the chrome..


and i can do my 18s with my color shift paint.

forgot to post this up.
eap center console "bezel" turned into a led switch panel... going to revert back to a regular svt (my stock one) and put the switch panel in the ashtray

Aux jack installed underneath the e-brake release. wish i would have installed it off to the side a little.

bought a hole-saw. then took it to an exhaust shop and had them bend up some pipe to have it come out the side.

i will try to get a pic up one of these days. its a little raspy (ORP + obvious Lunchbox delete)... backfires like a mutha f@_)!@
its kinda scary sometimes, but its awesome.
on the downshifts...

jokingly, i have thought about running the "flamethrower" mod.... but i will never do it. but would just be funny throwing flames when it backfires.

I dont agree with your style, but I like how you are trying new things and making it all match. To much for me.

I say lower it, throw a sway bar on it, and hit the corners hard!!!!

Good luck with your build!

for me i'd like to see green barrels on a set of eaps on this car. they are a stock wheel and would be a mod that would make people notice the car in a more positive light i think. the chrome 18"s are a bit too big. and the 16"s are too busy for my tastes. i like your idea for the exhaust. i may want to try that.

Its lowered two inches, can't daily it and lower it much more. Lol esp with how I drive.
Its already got sway bars. And I definitely hit the corners. I like my car to be different.

Not a fan of EAPs. And I always get compliments on my car. And the 18s have the machined look, but they will be painted.


And thanks for the critiques.

hood pin install almost complete... lol.
i will finish it today after work. need to trim down the underside of the hood to fit the bolts/nuts.
and i will have it wrapped hopefully by Sunday.

need to find a way to reinforce the scoop so it doesnt bounce at idle (all 3 racing mounts make it shake)
