    @madmike1157
    Thank you for the kind words!
    As far as weight goes the blower/gear drive unit add about 45 lbs to the front of the car. I saved approx 20 lbs with the tube front end so it isn't that bad of a trade off. It also adds nose weight down low which I'm hoping will help greatly when it comes to setting this thing up to get off the line.

    I wish it was a black one!!! it's the factory blue but it still looks good with the green!
    I used 3M double sided molding tape, works like a champ! It will pull the vinyl off before it falls off on its own.
