Oh and you know you lost visibility by installing 12000k HIDs right?
Not to hijack, Nate I have a question concerning that last part about visibility- I'm running 6k HIDs in my lows/fogs, am I losing visibility with that setup?

For the visibility, i know that 12000k will turn to the blue, but i also know that with the 55w it's look more like a 10000K. I will shortly post a picture :P

It doesn't look like you need the wheel spacers with the offset of those wheels.

Maybe you need them for the wheels to clear the brakes?

I didn't try them without the spacer to clear the brake... but on a sunny day that can be a idea.
The spacer were there to clear the UCA bolt and presently i'm close to it, so without spacer, maybe it won't pass :S

Any advise would be appreciated :P

what throttle body spacer are you using and what engine do you have? I have been looking for one on the 5.7 HEMI. I have the fast man TB but was wondering if there is a good TB spacer and what the benefit of it would be... Digging those decals on the sides. Looks killer!

I got the 5.7L hemi, the interior of the TB spacer is like a spiral, the effects are that the air enter faster, so more air for the same fuel.
That's the vendor that sold mine. When i install it i just notice that is response better. But from what i know the real difference arrive when you install a aftermarket cold air intake.

Very nice man! Did you get it pre-cut from Nate at rebadge or make it yourself? It looks killer
