I wouldnt worry about the front brother I have the same issues with the H&Rs. It sucks that the fenders are different dimensions really makes it look uneven. The side skirts tell the story those are level so no point in really raking the front just to even the look.

Car looks great man!

Got some news parts in...hopefully doing the installs tomorrow or Tues...

First I got my Borla 40477 transverse muffler, took less then 4 days to get, helps I'm so close to Borla's factory in TN...



Also got my Titanium exhaust tips in from overseas. They spent a couple of days in customs, but were at my house less then a week after ordering them...




I just hope that they don't look too big. They are 3.7'' tips, but are the only ones I could find that were good quality, real titanium, and had rolled edges...

I also won a bid for a used AEM CAI on ebay. Spent $200, got it shipped, hated the polished look, so I sent it off to a powder coater to get it re-done in textured matte black for that OEM look...No pics yet, but I am picking it up tomorrow morning!!

Also sold my OEM rims/tires/lugs, so I should have a little extra cash for either a Steeda STS or RSB, but we'll see...Stay tuned for updates in the next few days....

Looks great! Put up a clip when you're done installing! I have to ask though, link to where you got those tips? I love the burnt-chrome look of titanium tips...

I went and picked up my intake, and damn the guy did an awesome job. OEM textured black, will look super clean in the bay. Might try and get some custom Sterling Grey/Black AEM logo's made up to put on the intake or I might leave it plain, who knows?





Then I was off to the exhaust shop...hmmm dual outlet for stock exhaust?? I think not!!



Also, please excuse the dirty car. Had a ton of rain today and I had to drive about 2 miles on gravel road to get to the powercoater...

New 2.5'' pipe going in...

2.5'' pipe into 2.5'' resonator...


Into Borla transverse and finally, glorious and sexy titanium tips!!






Final impressions: I love the look, the exhaust guy and myself absolutely nailed the look I was going for. The sound is absolutely amazing. I was worried about it being too loud, but it's not, it's just right. Now if SCT ever comes out with a tune, and I get a race header, I'll probably go ahead and add another Borla muffler in front of the resonator, but right now it's perfect.

It sounds like a cross between a Subi WRX and a G35 coupe.
