That side shot is pretty bad*ss.
It very much reminds me of the tasteful, high-level execution of our TOV Project Si circa 2006...

Looks to me like Shawn knows more about the kit than the guy from CT, LOL.

Hehe I noticed that. It's because Shawn already did a full interview with Nate but a glitch with our wireless mics lead to unusable audio so we had to do a quick retake, and Shawn rolled with it. Also, as Shawn mentioned he's seen this stuff in his shop already. These guys and hondata have done a fair bit of the tuning on Church's dynos.

Impressive...It looks so much better than stock without overdoing it. I think it would be a great driver with the LSD. Can't get enough of those G25's.

It does look good, but I am not so sure it will be a resounding success.

Figure $1200-1500 for the ground effects, $4500+ installation for the supercharger, and then whatever else for the suspension (wheels like that will probably be on your own), and you have a car that is getting into the realm of a decently loaded 328i, but is probably not as fast or responsive.
