LOTS of OIC's will be posted. Stay tuned

 

It's been 3 days already, so...     :rofl:


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

You are building your 1200 along the same look I want outta mine.

 

That's what all the cool kids are doing.   ^_^

I'm looking for bob tail spoiler any links? 

 

Me too.   :rofl:

 

Can't seem to find the "right" one anywhere. Seen a few beat up ones on YJA over the last two years, none worth buying. 

 

I think I might buy one of these and tweak it to fit?

At this point it's either that or just give up and build my own.   :rofl:  

 

Which is also tempting, but just because I have some wacky ideas on how to make it cooler and more unique...  B)

I was thinking of modding a 240Z bob tail.

 

Been down that road too. Just can't seem to find someone who wants to loan me one for a test fit...    :rofl:

 

Also, they are a bit short for the "right" look, to me anyway. 

 

I actually ordered one of these because it's taller than the normal one, but they called me back to say it would be 4-5 weeks before they made it so I pussed out and cancelled the order.    ^_^

Yeah with all the stories of year waits could keep a guy from ordering.

 

Yeah, ordered an air dam about 10-12 weeks ago, was told it would be 3-4 weeks, it shipped yesterday.   :rofl:

 

 

I'm just going to try the 240 and have my brother do the cloth work should it need modding.

 

Please do. Would love to see how it looks.  :thumbup:

Get one out of the Frontier. QR25DE weighs less than a KA yet makes more power. Its not a common swap yet so some guys don't like it.

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but that is a very tall engine. And the 1200 engine bay is not very tall. I'd put a tape measure on it before I got too interested...

 

They are also all OBD-II unlike the KA...
