Then why'd you get that other wing in the first place? :dontknow:
That wing came on the car, as stated in the beginning sentence. I never liked it , but I wasn't going to do anything until I get ready to put the ITR wing on and fill the holes.

After all that work you still have the stock intake in there?
That air box is gutted with a Spoon filter. I hadn't decided what intake I wanted until recently, now I just need to save up and buy the ARC box. I'm more about handling and looks then mad power and straight line speed. That's why I don't have much performance. Krpo and ARC box are next, but I want to buy a house

Actually i just did my first one a couple of weeks ago, started small, i put on a AEM cold air intake, matches the color of my car. Makes the car sound pretty mean and nasty :laughing: I would really like to go into the exhaust range next...Greddy Ti-C but im not sure exactly which way im going to go next...suggestions?

What do you mean by braces? My friend took his dremel and cut all the plastic flap things out inside the air box so it breathes better, if that's what you mean.

For exhaust I love mine, I've had people telling me the car sounds like a bike a little, which is true. It is made for light weight and high performance. Titanium muffler with 1.2mm thick stainless steel piping. A friend of mine has the Mugen Twin Loop. It's pretty quiet so you can hear the intake REALLY well. I'd buy an exhaust that will work with what you want in the future... Turbo? Buy a 3 inch and wait to put it on. That's why it's taken me so long to do an intake. I was going to supercharge, but I really like NA much better and I want to stay that way.

Yea probably the best bet with how gas is these days etc...I was thinking of turbo too but its also my DD and i dont want to spend more on gas being that it already has to take premium...ugh

I know!!!! I'm paying about $4.65 per gallon over here. How about you?

You could do the hair dryer hack and get 2psi in your car. Slightly more power and better gas milage when driving normal ;)
