Facts...who needs them. Surely not most of the members on here. Lets just all ask questions we don't like the answers to. Or better yet, seek advice we never intend on using. Sorry, had to get that out.

The quality of members is declining rapidly.

I wanted to go with the CS style grille, but I believe its over $400-500? I settled for the Roush which is and insert... I'm assuming the CS style is the whole assembly? Which I'm assuming would justify the price

It's an insert, and on sale for 149 (140 with forum discount).

I've considered this one as well but felt the Roush looked cleaner so I went with it... I don't mind paying more for something slightly better... the CS would've been my 1st choice but I'm happy with the Roush

How many holes approximately did u have to make? We're they easy to do? Meaning did it take ingenuity to find out where to make the holes??

26 butt lovin holes to be exact! It's simple though. All I did was tape and clamp the splitter into place and then with a white paint pen I marked every single hole then drilled a 1/8 pilot hole in each one and then a 3/8 final hole. It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. It's a piece of cake.

I changed my mind Ed. While the body shop had my car, they had a four wheel alignment done at Bay Auto and now my car rides a helluva lot smother. Less noise, no more popping of the joints and it actually feels like it digs into the corners now unlike before when I would feel tremendous body roll.

So, no way! I'm not returning it to stock hight after all. I do now more then ever want to upgrade to a full coilover kit. I can't wait to finish installing my side splitters so I can take a shower and get a couple of laps in around town before I pick up my kids.

Tire Max did my previous alignment and they suck balls.

So after debating about 10 seconds I've decided I'm going to paint (not Plasti-Dip) my Steeda heat shield and intake tube.Click image for larger version

ID:	70265 Now my question is, do I need to sand this surface down or can I just clean it with some alcohol wipes and start spraying away? I have no interest in it being polished aluminum so I will never have the need to remove the paint ever.

I see I'm not the only one working on a de-blingification. I would imagine you will need to rough that surface up pretty good. I don't think paint would stick very well to a surface that smooth.

Yeah, I kinda figured... I was trying to be lazy but I guess I'll break out the sandpaper. Lol

Did you noticed I had shaved off my 5.0 badges? Now the only chrome is on my headlight and fog lights. And I plan to crack open my headlights soon so I can paint the trim around the ring flat black.

You could use primer (not 2tone) before spraying the color. Might help it stick better.

Nice. I'm going to go with the black 5.0 badges. Did you see my new grille? No more shiny **** up front. I just need to figure out what to do with that fugly chrome ring on the back...

Yeah, I think I'm gonna give a nice scuffing with some 150 grit then I'm gonna hit it with 2 or 3 coats of black primer and then a couple coats of Matte black. I really don't care for painting and I don't wanna have to do this again. Lol

Thanks man. I really like the Saleen grille, but I liked this a bit better. I'm hoping the airflow will help keep me out of limp home mode once I get her on the track, but I might need to spring for an upgraded radiator.

Probably the Boss one, but that's on my radar too.
