Boogaloo got it right, I purchased this set from RSD. Yes, they are super expensive but I would rather use the real deal than a replica.

I'll be buying the replica soon, I'm rocking the replica lip too lol. I'd rather have the real deal too, but anytime I buy something legit and nice, it gets ruined within weeks, but if I buy knock off stuff it lasts me forever. I was just meant to never have anything nice that's all... sad face

His insurance has claimed 100% liability. I am just waiting on their paperwork and check to get delivered before putting it in my shop of choice and getting a rental.

Robb, that's awesome going to the Sunday morning meet like that. Great dedication to your race car, and caffeine.


STi skirts review (I should do a side by side pic comparison):
The replicas are not a bad option, but do not compare in quality to the real deal.

The real are very well made, and painted semi-gloss black. Fully finished FRP with the STi emblem in place, and double sided tape on the backside of the flare. Plenty of quality hardware to mount and fit perfect.

Replicas have less mounting points, an unfinished FRP backside on the flare where the STi emblem is. Unfinished means tape doesn't stick well. The replicas require you to tape the STi emblem on. Comes with double sided tape to put near mounting points. Not a perfect fit, but will look decent.

They're made to rev hence they use lightweight rods and pistons, especially the newer high revolution "HR" VQ35HR and VQ37HR motors.
I didn't say they could handle boost reliably, I just think they could handle jumping from their stock rated torque, which is similar to that of an EJ255/257 up to ~400ish lb ft that they would last longer than 4000-6000 miles...I know they aren't like 2jz-gte's lol
