    no clue? some guy was sold it to me out of his car at the show. the ends of the lip dont quite go to the ends of the bumper but for 50 bucks i sanded it down smooth and sprayed it with some plastidip and the thing looks good instead of the stock valence and will probably get destroyed once i lower my car so ill be getting a 4motion lip when that day comes lol

    How do you like the tune? I might need to convince my brother to get one. And better pics of the cluster?

    I like the tune alot had it since waterfest but since I just changed the spark plugs it's way quicker at like 4500rpm

    They needed to be changed bad and had oil in one of the spark plug tunnels so looks like I'm gunna have to change the valve cover gasket

    It's a cluster from an auto but I just took the shell faces and needles and put it all on my stock cluster took about an hour
