    Mucho gracias. Funny how that's only $15 more over those shitty cheapass ones I bought and sold.

    Edit: I'd give you +rep, but I have to "spread some around before giving it to you again."

    Got it, fits well. It was kind of a bitch to get everything to line up right, but it's on there now. I only had to make a 120 mile round trip to pick it up. But it was only $45 instead of $160 new, so it wasn't that big of a deal.

    I'll take pics just to show it off...one of these days :p. The paint on it is in pretty good shape, only a few scratches and nothing that is down to the metal. The NEUSPEED logo is in good shape still. I was thinking about getting it powder coated and then putting a NEUSPEED sticker on it, but meh, it's not really necessary, and would just be an extra cost. There is a local shop that powder coats, so I might give them a call one of these days just for the hell of it.

    Use the money you saved for powdercoating. And when you really wanna get jiggy, get some traction bars. :)

    I googled and looked around for a few minutes. Do you think I can get you to give me a better idea of what exactly a traction bar is? Yea I can't imagine powder coating for such a small piece would be too expensive, I'm thinking like $20-$40 maybe.

    Do a search for Z-speed. They are a company that makes them, old school. You can get a good idea of what they are from them. Traction bars improve your 60' times.

    I haven't noticed much of a difference, but I only drove it to golf practice, and there really aren't any corners to test it out on the way there, plus the road was wet.

    Yea it was a bitch. Took me a good 15-20 minutes of wiggling it to get it to go on.

    I looked on the site, but no luck with that. Is this the site you were referring to Z. SPEED RACING PERFORMANCE CO LTD - Chilled casted camshaft?

    Woops! Forgive me, I have been sick for the last four days so my mindframe isnt exactly up to par. The traction bar is made by L-CON. Full-Race also makes a good one.

    Lol that's okay. That looks like it'd be a good addition. I think I'll wait till I'm a bit further along with what I want to do with my car though.

    If you're getting something powder-coated make sure they they put some kind of finish on it or make sure that it's cured very well. I had a shop powder coat a valve cover for me once. I had it on the car for about a month and then I went to detail the engine bay with some de-greaser and the powder coat ran and looked like crap...

    I'll keep that in mind, thanks for the advice.

    rep to you, (unless I have to spread some around first)
