why did you cut your bumper? isn't that illegal & stupid?
the bumper COVER that i cut does nothing for crashes.
Wheels are a definite improvement, the bumper not so much but if it's airflow you need...
well what's done is done, eh?
Looks good man, I kinda like how it looks with the black wheels better though. Either way it looks good.
you realize you probably could have left the body work alone if you had dropped a little more money on a more efficient IC
though I don't know what kind you have in there...
hax jobs are lame
Well thats just my spare bumper, i still have my perfectly good uncut stock bumper in the garage, im not stupid, i used a spare
Plus I have a 97 eclipse front bumper that i will be painting in the next couple weeks to put on, so no worries.
Oh btw, its a very efficient intercooler, its made by AGP i just cut the bumper cause I was going to a dyno party and wanted as much airflow through it as I could get.
Link to what IC it is?
Oh, and if you haven't, go read 'Maximum Boost', its a good read for any person running or possibly going to run a boosted setup.
I prefer the old wheels, and I think you should get one of the later-model bumpers with the rectangular lower opening instead of keeping that Sawzalled DIY job.
looks good, but I'm only saying that because it looks like mine
Thats the bumper i have sitting in the garage awaiting paint.
PanzerAce, they no longer sell this intercooler setup, they stopped a couple years ago.
Ah, very good then.
I still like the black wheels better. The gold kinda says either "my car is hot shit and I want everyone to know" or "my car will eventually be hot shit, and my first upgrade is a set of useless decorations". The black wheels are much more understated.
Also, I gotta ask: is that an aftermarket HID kit in your headlights? The glare in that one shot is terrible. I'd punch you in the face if I had to drive past that more than once.
Well the car has 382whp, so im gonna lean towards the first phrase.
And yes they are aftermarket HIDs.
Do what you want then, but keep in mind that cops will notice your shiny gold wheels just like everyone else. I, for one, am not interested in that kind of attention.
Next project: fix the HID glare. You're not the only person on the road at night who wants to be able to see where they're going.
High Five on the GST wheels.
That said, as a user of these wheels, I'd go with the aftermarket set you have, stricty cuz these are only 6.5" wide. They are strong wheels though, as I've def smashed one into a curb at 35mph before, with only cosmetic damage
You squeezing 225s on them little suckers?
lol, ive got 215s on these little guys right now. Plus, i dont have an aftermarket set of wheels, those black ones were my stock talon wheels
I see you live in MD, which part of MD?
Looked better before...
Dammit, you made me hungry. I love rice.
i actually think the opposite on this, the black wheels imo scream "trying to be shit hot....." wanna be "baller" if you will, def not understated at all. black wheels look like butt, regardless of car color.
eh, my .02
But at least they match the car. The gold is just...boing!
Nice except the rims, bumper, and the "Holy shit, we just finished the Folger's, let's cut a hole in it and weld it on" exhaust. I seriously don't see how a 4-inch exhaust can help anything.
Its a 3" turbo back exhaust, it actually provides quite a good gain on a car making any kind of power.
You are aware that *charged cars usually benefit from larger exhausts, right?
