Mine has the same type of exhaust as tim.. no big tip.. only thing that gives it away is the wide *** body due to flares, my MT.net sticker on the rollbar, and the RFL BOV.

i could care less what my car looks like as long as it hauls ***
around my area, people think that if you have any type of mod done to your car that you are a ricer and have a slow car, im ok with that

Is this coming from somebody with a body kit, vented hood, and no FI?

Sleeper for me. No stickers, FMIC is hard to notice. Exhaust is 2.25. Until you hear the turbo spool or the BOV you wouldnt really know.

thanks.

my procedure for painting? semi-flat black light coat on the front only. It's actually pretty hard to get it on the inside of the IC so for those of you that worry it'll reduce effectiveness, it's hardly an issue. The front of the plates is small in terms of surface area.

also, I did the same on my headlight surrounds.

"does u advrtyz ur terbo?"

In CA, that's like asking "Do you advertise the fact that you are carrying several ounces of pot in the glovebox?"

I have had both the actual RFL and the ebay version, so I can field your PMs. Mine vents right out from under my extractor hood... needless to say its loud.

on a side note, i was going to mazda today, and a civic rolled up to me and revved,
it was a two lane road, speed limit was 45, i was coasting at 30 or so, i was screwing with
the radio so i didn't even notice him until he revved. i looked over, still in 3rd,
i got on it very gently, just enough to spool and let off,
he had no clue it was boosted
kid went from being soooo ready to race to turning almost white
then he gave me a thumbs up, and made no attempt to get on it,
i continued to play with my radio, i cant get it to keep my radio stations

since my car has only like 150 hp, maybe less,
ill keep the front mount unpainted,
so everyone thinks im running some crazy setup
and wont try racing me

thats when ill paint it black,
and try and **** with everyone i see

I want my car to need a double take to really notice it. I always get a kick at our local car meets when guys will walk past it 2 or 3 times before noticing anything is done to it.

Here in Detroit there is no reason to try and flaunt my turbo. You could never hear it over the blowers the v-8 guys run. There is a whipple Cobra around here that just SCREAMS.
