I hear you on that. But someone's tracking with it.
Here's a better shot on a NA.


That diffuser, on this bumper cut-out..Hmmm?



Just curious of the two combined.

I might try that and see how that looks. Well maybe when I hit the lottery, because that damn diffuser is near $800!

where is the template for the dual cutouts? i searched on FM and didnt find anything. I dont trust myself to just eyeball it, i know it would come out crooked as hell. anyone have other ideas to get a good template to trace onto the bumper?

I used a piece of stiff cardboard, bending the edge of it to ride in the ridge on the bumper. I then ran the board along the bumper with a marker underneath it. Worked perfectly!

what about the curves at the end? I guess I could trace around a large coffee can or something?
