On the FIPK, be sure to tighten the bolts and such. You'll be suprised how fast they can loosen up.... But it's not big deal after you tighten them a couple of times they pretty much stay put.:beer:

Also about the checkmate cover. Does it use clamps or how is it attached? I'm a little weary of drilling holes....

I have a check mate. I drilled it. Fits good. Has a big crease the length of the cover. They all do. The locks suck as$! I seriously warn anyone away from installing them. Drilling into the cover reveals why they are so cheap! 3/4 inch of styrofoam, sandwhiched between 2 thin layers of fibreglass.

YES!
Better throttle response, and some cheap bolt on hp
adds to the sound of the engine/exhaust as well

coupled with a chip and an exhaust system
can actually take a underpowered I-4 and make it hold its own... or at least we wont be struggling to climb hills anymore... :lol:

I about **** my pants when i saw a bunch of styrofoam flying out when drilling the holes for my locks, i ended up getting the barrel cam locks like on the coke machines, they have worked good so far. Oh yea Got20's, what drop you have in the rear now? I just ordered some 20's for my rear and want to know how low i can go.
