Nooo, keep the chrome grill and surround, the C/F doesn't suit it IMHO

That was just the test fit... lol. The hood trim will be off along with the lip.

Great build, looks very tidy. Can't wait to see it go, what sort of power are you expecting?

Also what width are the wheels?

My engine builder is hoping its in the 140-150 whp range. Hopefully our tuner will get close to it.

The wheels were windened to 5.75. The rears were done on the outside of the wheel and the fronts were on the inside. She should have a nice stance and be 100% drivable . Getting close now, really Can't wait!

Here's a peak at what the firewall will look like. Not 100% in place, but getting there!!

Neat. Not quite as neat as with just the throttle bodies mocked up - I thought you'd managed to squeeze it in without bulkhead mods, but I see now you need room for the fuel rail

Yeah, we were debating on modding the firewall or just flipping the itb's and calling it good but it just didn't look near as good with the rail on the bottom. So since we had to cover the factory access hole anyways, the small box was made up to clean up the firewall, keep the rail on the bottom to hide all the wiring, fuel line's and injectors. It has a nice look to it to boot. I absolutely love how it's turning out.

It could have fit, and did fit, albeit very tightly. I think massaging the bulkhead a bit more and would have had ample room for engine torquing... but I also wanted to cover the speedo hole, and I think this killed 2 birds with 1 stone. Cleaned it up and tied in the rest of the dry carbon bits peppered throughout.
