Thanks man! The front bumper ports are called T3 ports, by ACS composite. They were ~$400 when I bought them, they may have dropped by now.

No for a while. I live up in North County and Friday traffic is too bad to get down there. Plus, I'm back in school. Wished you'd made it this past Saurday for David's cruise. We'll hook up soon.

Damn, well at least you didnt get injured.

Brakes are on, will update first post. Brake system: SS Brembo calipers, Baer slotted and drilled rotors, Hawk Performance ceramic pads, and Stainless steel braided racing lines. Hopefully ill get a few good shots today, the weather is pretty bad.

He took his v6 front bumper off and put the SS front bumper on his v6. A lot of people have been doing it on this forum.

I wanted the T3 front fascia from ACS. Since my car didnt have fog lamps, it made perfect sense to swap them out. The ports are functional, providing air to my engine bay and cold air intake.

Definitely, a cold air intake is worth it.

BRAKES BRAKES BRAKES!!!!
I apologize for the dirty car, its been raining quite a bit in San Diego lately and with the new wide tires... Well... Lets just say she looks like a boat going down the wet freeways with all that water shooting over the car.














Now... Check out how close the front wheels come to making contact with the calipers lol. A business card is a tight fit.
I considered spacers, but a majority of people told me not to do it.

I've seen your car around on the forum, but never had a chance to actually look at your build thread. I really like the hideaway headlights in black. They match the stock grill nicely. I also love the spoiler, I want one so bad for my car but I need to start getting other carbon fiber stuff then haha. I like the rotors and SS brakes I want to do the same to mine if I get a good deal on the brakes.

Keep up the awesome work man, your car is simply amazing.
