The kit included everything you need, down to the last zip tie and specialty screwdriver bits you need for the Halo LED swap. I added a little complexity with adding switchbacks in the park lamps that made my install a little more complex. That aside, I could have had the entire thing wrapped up in 3-4 hours.

Might Plasti-Dip around my reverse lights to make it look like black bezels. Still thinking it over if I should give it a try or not.

hitting a panic button

So here I am in my garage, got the front end of motor torn down waiting for my new timing chain, tensioner, oil pump, and cam kit to arrive, and then the idea hits me..... Just pull the motor and stroke it... I will go to work and sleep on this one.... question is???? do I really trust the lower end on the motor once I'm puttin 640 rwhp to the ground? My head says no, my wifes reaction to the additional upgrades says heck yes just pray for the best.... hmmm no sleep tonight!!!!!

Went with the already Black rear Bowtie, gloss finish just didn't do it, and decided to do the gas cap door. Why not!

I received a package from Apex Speed!



Kooks 1 7/8" long tube headers & 3" high flow cats.
Chase was great to work with, strongly recommend going to him for any of your modding needs.
I'll be making a before & after vid with my gopro in about a week or so.

Took off the rear bowtie. This would make an awesome belt buckle!
