Not many plans yet, I'm looking for suggestions though! I think a new hood would be nice.

I also would like help finding out if I should remove this chip that's in my car, or if its doing anything.

I Figured out the chip is from http://slrmotorsports.com/

Thanks Everyone! :)

Also if y'all look at the grill on the front of my car, I had two bugs get stuck on there on long distance trip, when I took them off they pulled the paint off also, any suggestions on a type of paint to use or just spray paint?

Welcome! You definitely want to remove that "chip" (it's a way overpriced 10 cent resistor) and if you are looking for a true performance increase, consider a new intake, exhaust system, and/or performance tune. There are several vendors for each, but the local favorites are Crab Intakes, the GT-R Exhaust, and the WAMS tune. A simple Google search will get you to their sites.

Damn, were those some kind of alien bugs with acid for blood? :eek: You could spray paint the grills but it will be hard to match the color and gloss accurately; you might then choose to completely paint both grills so they match. You could find cheap replacements on Parts Geek. Another popular option is to get recessed grills.

Yea I guess so, haha! Thanks for this information. I found the grills from the website you recommended for $9 each piece, is this what they really cost or are these cheep grill parts? Also what is up with these recessed grills, do they look nicer? I've herd some about them but don't know much. Thanks a lot!
