    I'm sure this is answered somewhere in the 15 pages of awesomeness but how much power are you making?

    371whp, 355ft/lbs
    in 4th gear (e153 camry box) on a dynojet uncorrected :D

    so my damage and modification report so far. I am the 2013 AI FP champ (happy days) but I will not be racing with them next year. next year will be for regional points!

    I broke the splitter and had to modify it. over the winter I plan on making a final revision to it.
    I still need to fabricate a rear diffuser
    I had to replace the hatch struts (anyone on facebook saw that rant)
    I still have to replace the right inner cv boot and right inner tie rod. then of course re-align the car (my favorite chore :ack2)
    then it's just more little work. i'll probabily spend 20 hours cutting off 20lbs.

    oh and of course...repaint the car! no color change, it'll be gloss and not flat this time. flat white is impossible to keep clean.

    any noticeable difference with the cf hood?
  16. Mafix

    Mafix Owner Staff Member Administrator Donated!

    30lbs lighter and a ridiculous amount of hood pins to hold it down

    but no. no noticeable difference.
