Thanks for the feedback. Really appreciate it. I don't need much function, I just need to bring the car down a bit. If I can stay stock feeling but a little lower I would love it.

I've got the same manifold reversed and all too! haha Except my turbo piping goes under the manifold. Did you run a spacer for the throttle body.

Yeah authentic Prodrives are something worth holding onto. I was amazed that the replica Prodrive lips are still backordered by three months, so it was VERY easy to sell my old one. I'm glad it's going to a good home.

I just got bored of the Prodrive look... it was starting to get played out when I first bought mine about a year and a half ago.. but I guess it works good if you're super low on coils

I actually just recently sold my Authentic Prodrive lip to a buddy of mine. It was still brand new in the plastic with all the paper work, hardware/clips and sealant. Genuine baby! Sad it's gone, but it was for the better.

Thanks!
Yes there is a 1" thick machined aluminum plate welded to the manifold for the throttle body.
Making this manifold work reversed was a nightmare, but we made it happen.

Is it the one piece long runner? Did you have hood clearance issues?

Yes the one piece long runner. Wouldn't clear the hood without removing some of the hood support ribs.
And had to flip throttle body upside down because Iacv was hitting hood too.

Zipties! This V1 lip cracked. My plan is to do some fiberglass repair and repaint the lip, but I want to drive around with it for a while first to see what I scrape on.

I had to cut the hood skeleton too, I flipped the throttle body upside down though.

Sure, the DEPO's are "knockoffs", but if you're coming from the super crap 9007 style OEM housings, these are awesome value for the money!

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have some proper retrofitted JDM housings. It's gonna be almost double the money of the DEPO's to do a proper retro...

After installing the DEPO's in my car I had a moment of "OMG I can see again"! The light output reminded me of my old BMW, which had brutal light output.

Mitch, did you buy the DEPO's? Oh, you didn't....
If you had, you'd know first hand these aren't the average garbage sold on eBay. Please stop schitting on something you have zero experience with, THANX!
