    Welcome! Nice car!

    I kinda like the blacked-out lights personally, but it is true that others will have a hard time seeing you properly. Were they painted or plasti-dipped? (They look dipped have you tried peeling it off?)


    Edit: ....nevermind I see we've already covered that lol

    I agree as well. In fact, I'm a huge fan of stock bugeye lights. Shaped really well and cool looking.

    Welcome to another bugeye owner. I never understand what compels one to spray paint parts on his/her car, however.

    I will preach once, and only once...

    You are aware that if you are rear ended that the blame can be placed on you for modification of your tail lamps, correct?

    I did the grimmspeed up pipe. Worth the price with the gaskets. Way over engineered which is great for a daily driver. No tune yet or required but...tune is always better. Deleted the egt sensor with a dollar resistor(2.2k ohm) and gtg. There is a couple ways to get it out, I used the drop downpipe(you'll need another gasket for this.) because I have access to a shop and lifts. Still not easy and pb blaster is a godsend. Good luck!

    Yea i was thinking of either the cobb or grimspeed uppipe and i was going to do the 2.2 mod as well i think im going to buy the uppipe then the exhaust and down pipe and install it all in one shot should be easier with things out of the way
