Going to also switch to a MPT tune once we do the boss mani swap. I bought a boss strut brace and wrapped it in carbon fiber. I have a Lethal Off Road X pipe but after viewing the couple of videos with this ORX and the Magnaflow Competition Cat back system, it will be loud. Maybe too loud! I did unbelievably find an OEM pair of GT500 quad tip axle backs off a '13 GT500 for $60! I bought them in a heartbeat and I am considering doing the switch to the quad tip if the ORX is too loud with the current Magnaflow mufflers. I would keep the axle back pipes so it would be on ORX pipe, resinator delete with Gt500 quad tips. The engine bay will look better when done than the exterior of the car. My side of the garage looks like a parts warehouse. Wife is NOT impressed LOL.
Are you using Vinyl CF Wrap, or are you actually using real CF and gelcoat???

I think they work well on the car.

I agree. Those ones look like two buckets taped to the side of your car. Just too big and bulky. A more flush type is the way to go IMO if you're going to put them on. The SHR are the ones I like the best.

Real Carbon Fiber w/gel coat and clear coated.
I wrapped the tower brace, CAI heat shield and the pistons on the hood struts with 3m carbon fiber vinyl

Have TONS now, inside and out. Here is the list of Carbon Fiber Parts now:

Exterior- front valance, hood vents, mirrors, quarter window louvers, GT500 Spoiler,License Plate panel,Rear Valance for quad pipes

Engine Bay- Radiator Cover, Coolant Tank, Fuse Box Cover, Cold Air Intake, Battery & Master Cylinder Covers

Interior-Steering Wheel, Entire Console, Window Armrest Panels, Door Locks,

I have learned a TON about carbon fiber parts. I have purchased from 4 companies and TruCarbon is heads above the rest. Seibon looks good, but fitment is for crap on what I have purchased from them. Cervini's fitment great, but not as dark and clear as TruCarbon parts.
Lots of pics in my profile
2013 GT : 6sp MT, Track Pkg, 3.73 Rear End, Brembo Brakes, Vortech V3 SC, Boss IM, BBK 90mm TB, JLT CAI, ID1000 injectors, BAP, Brisk Plugs, Tial BOV, Lethal OR X Pipe, 3" over axle to GT500 Quad Exhaust, Dynotech Alum DS, MGW Shifter, Eibach R2 Coil Overs, Bob's Billet LCA's, UPR adj. UCA, Eibach Adj PH Bar, TruCarbon Carbon Fiber inside/out. Tuned by Jon Lund II Three salvaged Bosses worth of Parts live on in this car. 636.49rwhp before Torque Booster added

I like that style but I'm not a fan of carbon fiber. That said for CF those look pretty good. I have them on my car just with body color (Sterling Gray also). I'm not a fan of the ones that look like some sort of air intake - as this is not a mid-engined car. But louvers that keep out the sun - I say - YAY.
