    car is looking awesome mate, would be awsome with a stroker i'm thinking of doing that now or rims if the stroker costs too much.

    spraying the grilles the same color as the car looks nice as well.

    Nice tidy car bud :)

    As for the EPA, most decent exhaust places are qualified testers, stick a couple of extra mufflers in and get it tested, all is sweet.
