I wouldn't say lots. Yeah cai headers but that's because it's the same engine as 4cyl tib it has lots of shared parts.

It's a start. Time for some wider wheels. Welcome to StanceWorks.

And please, un-block the air going to your radiator and put your license plate where it's supposed to go. It looks dumb having a big place on your bumper where a license plate it clearly supposed to go, yet you have it ziptied in your bumper opening thus blocking air to your radiator.

Oh I know kfx. I ordered coilovers from them I'm a test subject for the new coilovers he might be offering. There for a hyundai elantra. That's what I meant by swapping parts from other cars. Turbos and superchargers are also not cheap starting at 4k for a turbo set up.

Why would you move the license plate when you still have the plate recess?

If you get some wider wheels, something tells me you may be the only person to make one of these look great.
