i love everything done so far dood. exhaust sounds very nice.

the intake leaves something to be desired though... not sure what it is beyond why gm would make it wrap clear around the front of the motor like that but thats not ur fault... it does look good though man.

Yeah I know what you mean, thats alot of tubing to run through to create unneeded heat. Atleast the intake looks decent under there though. I was thinking about maybe having the air shield powdered candy red and do wrinkle black in the piping.

:O Oh my lanta. That is a nice drop. How is the ride qaulity?

Rims are sitting in the garage, drop is H&R sport springs, they say it's a 1.5"F 1.3"R drop but they lied lol. It sits lower than my fiance's pro-kit which is 1.5"F 1.7"R. Ride is very nice it's like stock but a little stiffer with better steering response. I have to order 4 5mm spacers and tires then the wheels should be going on.

Good deal man. Know what rubber you will be slapping on there? Are the rims going to be a little wider? If you could get it a little more flush it will be sex.

Not sure how I feel about the wheels yet. Better pics might help me, but I have an undying hatred for wheel companies making the ends of their spokes(weaker by doing so), just in at the outer lip to make the wheel's look like they have a massive lip, when they really just have @!#$ up shaped spokes lol

Anyway, get some better pics, and from the side. I just can't tell, but at this point, I'm not loving them on the car.

See, from the side, with the whole car showing I think the size, style and color of the wheel works fine on the car... but like I said, it kills it for me with the wanna-be aggressive offset spoke design just to give a high offset wheel a lip.

Because it's a big car, and those damn stupid spoke designs lol. With the spokes stopping and jutting inward, it gives the rim of the wheel a lot more thickness.... and all to have that fake deep lip look
