Absolutely stunning! The heat reflective tape is also a nice touch.

Awesome build man! Just read through whole thread. Looks great.

Noob question; with all of this extra stuff, how much weight do you think you've put onto this car? It doesn't seem like it will be as light as stock. Do you think it will affect performance? Is your new setup compensating for this weight? Or will it be negligible?

GL and stop losing your camera haha

Please consider what you are asking again. You are wondering if 3-4 hundred extra pounds (maybe) will matter in a turbo v8 car? Its like picking up two big passengers. Sure it will slow it some, but will it be noticeable? Barely

I dont want to sound like a jerk, im sorry if it is coming off like that. Honestly with the amount removed from the car, the weight bias has definitely probably shifted forward, but i wouldnt be suprised if it was close to full stock weight.

All the metal he was adding looked beefy, not to mention doubling the amount of cylinders. And what about balance/distribution?? Im a noob and stated as much but I think these are valid questions.

And I didn't know you were involved in the build process, I should have just asked you.
