Easy install and great looks. Definitely would recommend. My buddy commented that he liked the factory installed look... a plus in my book. Great job Elite Engineering!

Dropped my car at the shop today:


And opened some boxes before the parts are installed:












The headers are JBA shorty ceramic coated titanium color. The exhaust is stainless works cat back retro tuned.

They've been great so far. We had to work through some scheduling issues and they've been accomodating. Can't wait to pick up the car tomorrow!

Considering that same spring package. Are you happy with it ? How about a shot of the car showing it lowered.

Springs aren't installed yet. I'm going to tackle that tomorrow. I'll get picks of the install and before/after photos.

Had a long weekend so that meant work on the car!

First, suspension. Installed everything myself in about 5 hours. Couldn't be happier with the ride or look. I do want wider rims/tires now that they're tucking

Front:


Rear:


I couldn't figure out how to keep the stock shock dust guard up after installing the springs... You can't tell from the pictures but there is a slight gap where dust/debris could get in there.

And Lowered 1.2" Front and 1.5" rear by B and G lowering springs. The ride is superior in performance and feels like stock when cruising. Hard bumps are more harsh (potholes and asphalt layer switches)




Here's the exhaust installed. Couldn't be happier with the sound or fitment. I will be replacing the stock cats with high flow ones in the near future.




Thanks!
