Looks good over all. Some of the aspects I don't like but, that's beside the point. Definitely get the thumbs up for the effort and dedication. What're your plans after this?

Thanks. everyone has their own opinion and I honestly appreciate the respect in which you expressed yours. wish everyone could do it in that manner.

just curious what aspects you don't like. There's a lot of new things I've added that I'm not 100% sold on yet ether.

I do agree our cars naturally have a fat rear and what I did was kinda make it more prominent I guess. but I like it. kinda like throwing a little black dress on a curvy woman hahah!

Thanks. I do my best to not be an ass but sometimes, correspondence through online forums can be tricky and often misunderstood. Truth be told, I have a really, really hard time liking anything from the 10-13 model years so, that naturally inhibits my disposition. On top of that, I adore the handling characteristics of top notch builds and aig bags are far too "showy" for me. Granted I know that in some instances, they've been used for handling purposes but, coming from my point of view, they're the exact opposite of which.

With that being said, however, your choices aren't poor by any means, they just so happen to clash with my ideals and personal taste. I think that's a lot better than say, disliking your car because of something petty, like it being a V6. You put time and effort into a platform that you enjoy, for that, you will get my kudos regardless.

Thought you had the havoc diffuser then saw it was a modded stock diffuser. Nice touch. You do that yourself? And video of the bags is a must

Definitely the baddest V6 I've ever seen. Outstanding work! Can't wait to find out how much power it's making and what it runs at the strip.
