    Looks cool man.
    With the throttle body from Mace, what do you do about the TPS, does the new throttle body come with one or do you use your factory one?

    I just sanded mine while it was in there, went from fairly low grit and worked my way up, then used metal polish on th rest. Came out nice you can see in my thread and there is a how-to on the forum as well
    And no HID's are bad, I like Philips Xtreme Vision nice and actual white, not yellow or blue
