    3d printed? That's awesome! I like how air can still come out of the vent, so it's hella functional

    Update: So i have been prepping the car for a little more track duties.

    So
    -Removed fogs and added the fog covers and drilled out the drivers to let air to my intake
    -Went down to 15x7 work RSZR on Advan AD08R's
    -removed the BBK to refresh things and also waiting on a bracket to step down to a 11.75 rotor vs a 12.19 rotor.
    -installed a 3m Clear bra
    Still waiting to supercharge the car.

    i haven't really notice anything different, i do also have the under panel as well soo it might be doing something. but for me it was just trying to clean up and cover some things. but might need to remove it to let the air go over the supercharger and cool it.

    Well.... got everything pretty much sorted in the engine bay, it's really tight but everything clears and nothing hits.
    Going to tune it this week and maybe a track shake down day soon.

    So car is now supercharged and tune on a PowerFc. making 206.7HP @ 138.2 LB to the wheel's

    Here are some shots of my under panel which cleans up the aero under the body a little. Next up i am currently working on a vented carbon fiber oe style hood for tracking and keeping under hood temps down.

    Car sits a little cleaner and i like it but keep forgetting i have the trd kit in a box freshly painted too lol
