    Front is QA1 coilovers and tubular a arms. Will probably swap to the speedtech stuff up front when money allows

    Thanks! I like the stance too, but I am scraping pretty bad with the long tube headers...I ordered some mid length headers I’m hoping give me some more clearance. The wheels are Weld Racing S79’s. The hood is just a steel 2” cowl hood

    Apologies, noticed your message very late. I am running Pirelli P Zeros with 225/45 at the front and 265/40 at the back.

    That's a lower profile hood than some and I really like it. Who sells that one ?
