Haven't touched my car in months but my new wheels will be here next week. And I'll be removing my tail light tint, and black RC's will be gone. Why lip? not sure it came with the car, haven't had time to remove it. And thanks, yeah I do rub quite a bit an they help for sure.

Front mount installed, finally. Though must say that was quite the task. I purchased the Godspeed fmic. So I had to weld the map sensor flange on, and then had a friend make a little piece for the n75 hose. But the biggest pain was having to trim the bumper to get it to fit right. I honestly didn't have to trim that much but it was just the trial and error process of having to take the bumper off and on. Make adjustments, then keep trying. So for anyone wondering about the godspeed, expect to do some extra fabbing. In the end though I think it turned out great. The fitment aligns nicely and enjoy it overall. :chug:

Put your side grilles back in! always better IMO to have those in. Otherwise, hope the godspeed works out well for you! Been thinking of giving it a shot on mine and swapping the couplers to black.
I'll have to do some more trimming and adjusting to get those to get back in. We literally spent hours trying to get that bumper to fit back on. So I'm happy with it like that for now.

Side note I finally after 4 months of being back-ordered and pain staking waiting.. Finally got my wheels in, a set of staggered 0.05 3SDM's. 18x8.5 fronts and 18x9.5 rears. I'll be mounting them tomorrow. So excited :aww:

Notch will be done next.

Test fit went nicely, had to order some hub centric rings and cone seat bolts so they'll be here tomorrow. And they'll be mounted finally.
