    The plan is for side exhaust but the molds will be solid for now that way it will allow you to put the exit where you want it. If in the future if we get enough requests for side exhaust we can take a mold of mine and we can go from there. There is very and I do mean very little room [because street height with out scraping is going to be tough even with oval tubing]to do this without removing the fuel tanks and going with a fuel cell and for people who daily drive this car I think most would not want a fuel cell. When my car is completed I will have full details on exhaust,coolers,6point roll bar,dry sump Etc.....

    Awesome. I want to just run mine to the sides from where my cutouts are now and then replace the resonator with a single muffler for the few times I need the car to be not super loud.

    UPDATE:

    I thought I would give you guys a quick update. The rear quarters have been gelcoated the car is in the paint booth to speed up the process of curing the gelcoat due to the frickin cold weather we are having. We should be laying fiberglass this afternoon for the production mold. What's left you ask, well the front fenders and rear bumper. After that the frame for the hood. Gotta run.....................

    Wish I had a hint of what it would look like or a ballpark price. I begged but I let her go today. The 7 year 8 month LOVE affair is over.... Now its just memories for me. Good luck with your kit.

    UPDATE;


    Happy New Year to all !

    The molds are 99.9% done and we will finish this week. The first set of parts will be made next week which will be mounted on my car. As you can see the molds were done on the car because if we removed them then fibergalssed them the structure would change due to the weather(metal fenders) and the plastic bumper is just to flimsy to get a good mold without leaving it on the car.We are now in the process of making the molds stronger similar to the photo of the hood in a previous post.You can somewhat see how wide the rear of the car is now in the rear bumper photo. The oem wheels are on the car now that way we don't mess the new wheels up.

    Thank You for all of your interest.

    I agree. I'm hoping that just the front bumper and fenders (in carbon fiber) are an option, if that would look OK aesthetically. It would be nice to be able to run a square set of 10.5 - 11" wheels in front and back, but I don't think I'm willing to cut into the stock rear quarter panels beyond rolling the fender lips.

    If you only used the front fenders and bumper the car would look like an upside down triangle. The only way to get a true widebody is to cut, and that applies for most production cars. We are lookking into Carbon Fiber but as I have said in a previous post it will depend on the demand for it.

    Thank you for your interest.
