Here is my 17 Sport 5spd. after a bath this morn. Fresh 17" Motegi MR141 BFG 235/45ZR17
I've been brainstorming all week of ways to make vents like that. I have the fog lights on mine so I'll have to get all artsy with the Dremel, but I have enough grill material left over to experiment. Found some ABS mesh and went ham with the Dremel for a few hours making a DIY Sport mesh grille. I love how it turned out on yours. It's a real mean look.
Here's how my grille turned out.

I Dremel'd out my fog light bezel and the plastic behind it so, I have fresh air flow to the K&N. I know the computer does the air calc but, I like to think some moving fresh air cant hurt.
Top notch Dremel skills. My favorite tool in the arsenal. Love it so much that I have two of the suckers! Not everyone is up to cutting bits on their car, solid work. Have you thought about doing the lower bumper grill? (Maybe hide a light bar behind it?)

I have thought of it.. But, i'd have to set up a Big3 ground for the car. I'd like to wait for the aftermarket to get stronger before I spend money on lighting. I'm more of a performance guy but, this car doesn't have the aftermarket backing it up yet. I'll probably tune it after I hit 100k to wake it up a lil bit.

I'm not sure how many amps our alts are rated at, but I have a light bar, hella horns and two amplifiers, one is 500w and the other is 600w. Slight dimming when I'm bumping the subwoofer hard but the voltage drop is very minimal when I monitor it. So the stock electrical system seems to be holding up just fine with some moderate load added.

Just gave my girl her first hand wash of the season. I always give the engine bay a good cleaning in the spring:

And then of course a nice, hand wash:

The weather here has been unusually nice, so I've been driving my other car. My garage is double deep an while it's kind of a pain I can fit both cars on one side. I really wish I had a three car garage :(

My poor exhaust is still in a fedex trailer 5 days late... I've been itching to put it on. Nameless Quad with mufflers.
