Holy huge pictures, Batman! It'* so big I can't even tell what you're trying to show. Can you shrink it or step back a bit and re-shoot it right after you take the SSEi badges off?

Do you live in Palatine? You need to check your spelling bro.

You are 20 minutes away from me. We should hook up.

First of all, i said i never had ANY intention of passing my car off as an ssei, i have a 1996 SE N/A L36, i put the badges on there because i like them, i would never lie about my car or pass it off as something that it is not, besides, bonneville club is supost to be about people helping eachother, not attacking eachothers cars

What I did many moons ago was I used a 3 or 3.5" dryer duct and routed from the side front openin on the front spoiler to the intake hole for the airbox. There was no difference before 60km/h ( maybe lost a lil ).. but on highway speed and up.. you'll feel a difference.. and with the dryer duct.. it was easy when it snow or raining.. pull over.. push it back under the bumper.. and done.. no need to worry bout pickin up rain and such.. it also helps ensure you dont' pick up any heat from the headlights

the only reason I removed it was that I moved into the country where the road is really dusty and there'* lots of construction dump truck that travels that road which either dropped or kicked up a lot of dust. It was a great $3 mod

I think drunken monkey ( willwren) might be old enough ( on this forum ) that remembered that

Part of getting respect is earning respect. Posing is a ricer trick. People that own SSEi'* pay dearly for them, and know how uncommon they are (refer to Techinfo for production numbers).

By posing, you give the rest of us a bad name. You'll end up in a tangle with a Type R and lose, and some punk will tell all his friends he beat an SSEi.

I can honestly tell you that I don't recall a single poser ever being a member of this site. So you have to understand that on a nOrMaL Forum, you'd have already been flamed out of existence into a little pile of charcoal.

Here, we'll be honest and up front with you about it. The badges are classless. If you want an SSEi, buy one.
