The car looks good but I would've spent the money you spent on that '09 front end conversion on bolt-on motor parts. That's just me, 06-08 HFP front lip & move onto a different area to spend money on. The colormatched mudguards look great & was thinking of doing that to mine but my car is a Panda so they look fine black. The wheels look good but being that low on coils doesn't translate to an improvement in handling. It's just for looks.

Any plans on de-badging those stickers from the rear doors?

haha i dont care. if some makes a suggestion like, "hey man you should paint that, cause IMO i think it would look clean" ok but if someone says "dude that looks like garbage, paint that piece", one is a criticism and the other is hate. haha

i like to hear suggestion. and yea man had to close my thread cause no more 24 block, please dont remind me i really liked having it. made me unique. but now i have a built 2.0 full race...eh

but hey, i know you cant say my name because you are in FL (only kid) but it means.... i no kea, or care

Your 24 block was a sick build & liked how you painted the block red like the domestics.

All good I know what your name means & know how to say it. I'm not your typical FL resident, I was imported from S. Korea.

One of my all time fav movie quotes "Only steers & queers come from TX & you don't pretty much look like a steer so that narrows it down don't it!"

:rotfl: Damn I love that movie.

OH!!!! so you know i love my rice lol jasmine rice only please, must be sticky or it is no good. uuummmm.....think of a bowl of rice haha man that sounds good right now

yea it was sick, but the block i guess was pushed to much? but lots of people say the tune was garbage because it got to hot and popped the pistons. the tuners response was bad piston design. i dont want to bash the "first in 8s" but that is why i am not going to him again.

i have another k24 block in my garage too that i actually dropped in the car, but then found that the front mount needed a slight adjustment to fit (ie custom) and said forget it. sold some parts from it and bought the 20 block some upgrades

MMMmmm jasmine rice is sooo good. :drooling: I used to buy that **** buy the 20lb bags.

I'm sure I don't have to tell you that a tune is everything on a boosted car. Could the design of the pistons played a role in why your 24 popped, maybe but IMHO the tune would've played a bigger part.

Damn I want a 24 for my car but that would require to lose my Hy Tech RH. I just got a new megaphone 3" test-pipe for it last week so I didn't have to use the not so pretty looking 2.5" adapter from FR.

yea i have mike (soxfan) look at the tune and he pulled a lot of ign up top because of the increase back pressure and us really maxing out the greddy manifold. but i dont like how tony tunes is the aspect that he drops lots of full during the spool, 10-11 a/f the at peak boost would increase a/f to 12-12.5 i dont like that. keep it maybe 10 at spool and 11.8 tops during boost.

24 w/ hytech header...oh yea. the guys making all motor k24 setups are nice. 280hp all motor snaps much faster than a turbo or s/c by far (same hp outputs). i dont care who you are. i will admit that.
