yup all that matters are the internals which are all cleaned, replaceable parts have been replaced, case has been blasted, primed and sprayed.
Function > Form

I was until i got bare aluminum wheels. sucks to keep them clean but it looks really good when they're freshly polished.

It all depends on what you do under the hood also. That crinkle with the machined fins would be awesome if you do other stuff like that too.

If I drove around with no hood then I would justify doing it. I never have and never will "show off" my engine bay. Supercharged or not, its still a V6 lol

I got around to taking 5min to install the rear diff skid a few minutes ago. JD traction bars will go in tomorrow after work. Didn't know downey opened up his own company. His name is laser cut into the skid

You say that now, once the SC is in place and the power burns and full throttle take offs burns out the LS… then you will say, "I should have had a Locker” !

Way smoother, barely any dipping of the front end when you brake. Rides way better I'm glad I got some
