Good looking 8

Jazer, nice BB. Not sure if anyone said but your catback system looks a lot like my Greddy supreme tips look almost identical, may be wrong but if it is would say greddy on it mine has plate underneath.

Decided I liked the eyelid look enough to keep it, so got a more "permanent" solution.

I just spent all afternoon reading your build thread. I just bought an '04 Winning Blue 6MT with 53K miles on it for a fun car. I haven't done much so far other than clean it up and start pre-mixing, etc. I have a coil kit but haven't installed it yet. My plans are a lot like yours, mods to increase the fun and reliability. I look forward to reading more from you.

Thank you! I appreciate that. I tend to get a lil bit windy/descriptive with my posts at times, so thanks for taking the time to read through! Haha

Mine is not a Greddy, just similar style tips. Mine is custom made by Reckless Motorsports and has dual Jones Maxflow mufflers with 3 piping.

Update on the wing brackets - I have basically given up on finding a shop to cut my design. Most shops do not have the capabilities to actually utilize my files (they are too complicated) .. and the few quotes I was actually able to get were astronomical. The original plan had fallen through and finding a backup shop was virtually impossible for me. I wasnt going to spend hundreds on a set of dinky brackets, lol.

Because of this difficulty, when I came across a used Carbon Fiber variant (which was never permanently mounted, only test fit with as he described, a 9-9.5/10) I jumped on it. The deal was good, noticeably less than new WITH a verification that it fit well. I have seen some that looked jacked up, and some that look like they are actual Mazdaspeed (minus being carbon fiber) so this gave me a lil more confidence than buying straight from a supplier. Also has nice (aluminum) brackets.

It should arrive tomorrow!

Ill probably keep my black one as a spare or sell it to someone who maybe has more connections in the shop industry than I do.

Got the wing mounted. Could not be happier with the fitment, it fits as if it were OEM! The lip portion fitment is worlds better than the other varient I have, also as a whole it's much lighter. I do still need to repaint the upper brackets, they didn't come polished like the lowers were.. but I was eager to get it on and see how it looks.

The exterior of the car is virtually finished she's finally achieved the overall look I was aiming for.

IN LOVE.
