Rolled, and pulled depending on what size tire you decide to go with. Would look good if done well, though.

The fitment on the first set is much milder and you may be inclined to swap them out in the future if you are looking for a somewhat-aggressive fitment, so if you plan on going big, you may as well do it the way you want from the get-go

I agree but if you look closely at my rear lights you will see that their is a gap. This problem with this body kit is that it does not fit the ralliart perfectly, it's to bad that this issue also happens at other parts but is not as apparent! Though, I might remove it and see if I can fix it. If not then we have issues.. lol.... It will be a lot cheaper then getting another body kit, that's for sure.

It would be a rare body kit on the ralliart though.

Since everyone likes it, it's making me very happy now. I did always like the body kit but the issues with it made me whether I should keep it or not.

Also, +1 on painting the mesh black. Would clean it up very nicely.
That would be nice! I hope it's close to San Antonio or Houston since my wife has family close by but to San Antonio it's 7hrs and to Houston it's 9hrs. I really hate driving out of el paso because it's nothingness out there. lol I'm more than willing to. I will tell my wife we need a weekend away.

I'm getting plasti-dip soon (bye bye chrome!), should I use that on the mesh?

That's classic. Imagine the head-scratching by the previous owner when the rear spoiler didn't fit, followed by "I've GOT it!"...

Rich

Might be why he sold it. lol... Works for me! I have PLANS....
It's the stock exhaust currently on it. To quiet if you ask me.

Yea, that clears it up. I love that body kit. Just the cost to get it then painted compaired to making the one I have work is what I am looking at right now. :-)

Yes it is! I love driving but I just hate driving through the desert. Something about it makes me ZZZzzzz. I used to live in NJ, NY, PA and I can drive for hours anywhere around there but here. I hate the drive through the desert. Did I mention it sucks? lol

Will do. I'm not sure if I want to do the EVO X swap. To much power in my hands is dangerous. I'm with 03chi-town0Z, lets push the limits of what the current turbo has. Also, If I was to ever do a swap I would go bigger! Which means I would do all the other mods first and go with a bigger turbo. lol.. Why? I don't know it's just me. If I'm going to do it, then go big. I would upgrade the SST trans and a lot of the engine parts! For now, I think I will be happy with what I have.

I'm going over to check your build out now.



So here is an update:
I installed thee EVO X BOV and THE GST pill.
Took me about 1 hour to do it all. the hose were the pill was did not want to come off.

Then I reflashed the ECU with the GST 91 Boost Pill Tune V2.5

Took it for a test drive and it was amazing the difference!
I shifted at 7500 RPMs, not sure if thats good or bad for the car. It was a test drive though. lol....

It's all good, I take my car to red-line ATLEAST once a week. Nothing like a Ferrari tune to get rid of carbon build-up
On a more serious note, periodic red-line's is good for a high performance car like this. An easy way to damage the engine is putzing around for a year never going over 3k rpm, then deciding to go drive 'aggressively'. There will be a higher likely hood of an exhaust valve getting stuck from carbon build-up.

Thanks!!! Well, I stopped at 7500 RPMs but i'm not sure what the max RPM was. Was kind of worried about going higher!

Cheers / hold on i'm at work so it's rootbeer!
