Added a cheap urethane STI splitter. Did a test fit before paint and left it on.

What offset did you go with? Thinking about these wheels or the Enkei TS-10. Car looks dope.

I didn't plan on a progress thread, but I guess this is it!
I followed usdmJON (https://acurazine.com/forums/acura-i.../#post15734363) for the LED fogs and STI splitter thank you for the tips.

Had some remarks out in the wild, so I used the other letters


I'm gathering parts for an exhaust system

Rolled some body up out of the way only to find I may need to trim the bumper bar a little to get duals in there. Shot the underside of the floor pan with Boom Mat to shield some of the heat.

So it begins



The 4" oval is to make the crossover, no Y's allowed.
It's been a few years since I welded, so a little re-learning curve ahead and I going MIG gasless with Blue Demon 308LFC-O. It's all going to be wrapped so my learning curve won't show. Gotta control the heat because her belly will be skinned.

Daily Driver so back together for another day

Looking good. The hard part will be making the trim go back in and look right.

How do you plan to reapply the black trim?

I don't plan on cutting the trim until it's much closer to complete, but it's held on by clips that slip into the 7 slots at the perimeter and one screw thru the little hole to the right.

Looked like the perfect spot for the exhaust crossover hangars

Learning to TIG on the parts that will be wrapped.
Here is the Y/crosspipe I'm building.
How it will look is first then a peek inside

Thank you. Need to mount the tips and route the tail pipes. I just wanted to make sure everything lined correctly and see if the picture of the mind's eye was accurate.
Up front I put a Stainless Works 3" (2.5" thru) so in the quiet setting it's the same volume as stock, just deeper (while dumping under body)

I was under the hood today and saw that a simple snorkel removal would change the intake from under hood to cold air
