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'm going for more of the aggressive look, so the plan is to go big :-)

I have to find them in this size. The thing i'm worried about is that if i'm going with the wider body kit I might want the 9.5 wide then. So, Now i'm wondering how much wider is the body kit.

Yes it is! I had to test that out :-)

New update:
Ok so I painted the mesh plack and the window trip with plasti-dip.

Also, adding to my list is the skip plate!

I also have green neon lights sitting garage forever and I think it will go well with the car. lol...

I had to put a front license plate on. Did not really want to but I have no choice before I get a ticket and I have been pulled over for it!

Yea, I have the Evo side plate coming. The current one has tie wrap on it everywhere. Good thing I put it on last night though. I passed about 4 cops on the way to work today. I usually don't pass any.

I disagree, I can't stand the look of the front plate not being centered.

With his Evo X style front you can't block that off..... Side/sliding out plate or none is the only way to go in his case.

Beautiful. Front looks WAAAY better now. Still, I've never been a fan of un-painted carbon, but to each their own.

Also, if you're already looking at spending ~300 on a skid plate, may as well fork over the extra 75 and go with this one: http://www.sspperformance.com/sub-ca...x/underpanels/

Offers greater coverage and some ventilation as well. Not to mention a sweet access panel for easy oil drain plug and filter access

Excellent project!

I noticed that your planning on adding a Re-Q bass restoration unit. I can't tell you enough how much you don't want to do that. I just took my Re-Q out and before setting it down on anything, threw it in the garbage. It's noisy (not clean) a little finicky, and doesn't actually restore anything below around 40hz. I won't get started on the supposed power of the front versus sub channels...

Instead, pick up an Audio Control LC2i. Crutchfield has them for 99.00. It does essentially the same thing, only the AC actually works, is clean and sends a nice high voltage signal to your amp(s).

Thanks for the heads up. Will look into it.

I like the look of the unpainted carbon on this car
I don't like how they look on a lot of cars, though. I'm also looking into this body kit now. Just waiting for them to reply to my email. I really like it. It has an aggressive look to it

Let me know what you guys think. I hoping to order this and the BC Coilover this week

Well I finally got a hold of the seller on ebay and that body kit is for the Evo X. Yet, it does not mention EVO X on the site at all. would have been an awesome body kit. Well, the search is on...

I really like the GTR wide body kit.
http://www.body-kit.com/model_mit_lancer08bodykits.html

I'm also going to try to get a hold of duraflex about that other body kit and it they can do a custom one. I will keep you guys update. I had to go out with the wife today so hopefully tomorrow I can order the coilovers. I'm also soooo tempted to get the borla exhaust. I might be a dead man then.

I contacted them and for the GTR wide body kit and it will be $1,400 shipped to the houe. I really like how that body kit looks like. The seller has great reviews. I'm going to see if I can bring them down a little. ~Hope you guys like that body kit. I think it will be a very unique one to see on our cars.
You can also see almost the same body kit in their Evo X section in Black.

I contacted Chris at MAP and got the BC Coilovers with extenders for$1034 shipped to the house.

I also ordered the http://www.racinglineperformance.com/shop/pc/home.asp
EVO X Front Endlinks $92.24 shipped.

I'm planning to order the whiteline swaybars.

I guess after I get all this installed it will be time to get a Borla Exhaust. lol... Man I can't wait....
