Well after a month and change on jack stands i finally went back and re did the ducting. Actually boxed the intercooler in. Bumper fitment took a little for it to fit perfectly. Next to task is to get the undertray back on a plug up the remaining low pressure areas and open up the top of the bumper some more

Rear diffuser kinda skeptical on, but it was free so why not install it. Waiting for other two sets to come back in stock.

I have that diffuser. I only ran it at one track day by itself before putting my wing on, but it helped with high speed stability. Talking to the guys at Verus, they said there was little room to optimize over nissan's stock design. the way they put the stock muffler already created clean ish air flow, but since most of us don't run stock exhaust it is a worthy upgrade.

Tires ordered. Just need to order pads, and get ready for next month. Time to see if sealing up the front end will help with coolant and oil temps. If so, Sebring in October
