Have you loctited the butterfly screws in the intake manifold yet?
this has been added to your profile


I have a XS 3 piece sitting in one of my spare bedrooms. I will be ordering my Apexi WS2 either tomorrow or Wednesday. Once I get that, I'm installing them both at once, and loctiting the screws at the same time. Then I'm starting on the front suspension.

Can't wait to see it with the stock bumpers and lip kit!
That body kit is horrible and I even like some kits...lol.

I am guessing that was a previous owner thing? Or bad choices? lol

Previous owner, along with the 4 point harnesses that are no longer in it, the cf hood he never cleared that came up on my wife while she was on the interstate doin 75 mph (broke windshield and dented roof) and the cf wrapped fart can that is on it.

Thanks fellas. I have an 02 stock bumper sitting in my garage, but I'm going to wait until I get a set of foglights before I install it. Still have some front suspension mods on the list, and if everything goes as planned income taxes will bring me a nitrous kit :D

Not yet, waiting to get the 02 foglights so I can put it all together at once. They should be here this week sometime. There were no fogs that came on the car so i had order some. Also finally ordered new ball joints, sway bar end links, front wheel bearings, Eibach swaybar kit, those with the 2 point jimmy bar I picked up and the ES control arm bushings I have already should make this a fun weekend.

I love the way they look at night (plus the blue matches my deck) and imo they look pretty good during the day too. They honestly look better in person, but to each his own.

not very familiar with the eibach swaybar kit, but heard some gd reviews on it. good luck with the project! I still don't know if i should go with the 00-03 specv bumper or go with the 04-06 style? though several have told me to keep my gxe front bumper on cause they prefer that look! hard choice :facepalm:

Update-Eibach front sway bar is on, I will be installing the rear next week when it warms up a little. Also changed out ball joints, end links, and outer tie rod ends. I think new drilled/slotted rotors may be my next install.
