Bonnet is rancid, completely wrecks the look of the car. Dont like the tail lights either.
Other than that looks good

sorry but i dont wanna be neg about your car just asking, 230rwkw on 10.5psi isnt that abit on the low end? i was thinking atleast 250-260rwkw, but yeah.

Car looks good i'm with the guys about the bonnet though, i like the exhaust setup looks tuff,
and the engine bay looks pretty neat and clean good job mate.

Do you have any clips of the exhaust would like to hear it.

thanks for the feedback either positive or negative .. looks like ive over done it on the bonnet then. but may i say the cosworth vents keep the raptor blower cool in one perspective.
