    I don't care for the Wing, but the rest is great looking in my opinion.

    Good for letting your V8 overheat. Do a search, there is a reason the Z/28 Camaro Sport Appearance Package is a 2 piece unit. The 6 banger was 1 piece. That car will not cool as it was designed.

    don't these cars have a air lip under them like the corvettes? if they do, by putting this on, it is renedered useless

    Thanks all for the help. The side skirts and back piece look the same as the stock WS6 effects can't really see what the purpose is for the rest of the kit other then the front spoiler.

    About overheating I will have to see how it goes. I never had a problem in my 99 vette after I took off the air dam and never put it back on because I had the car slammed and I kept hitting everything with it.

    I like the stock TA body better than any aftermarket kit. Most after market kits seem a little to much for my taste.

    +1 pretty much whatever car you have honda, pontiac, bmw, all the body kits tend to be toward the ricy side. instead of the lip, lower it 1.5" or so.

    I have the entire kit, still havent put it on yet. I think I am just going to put the front piece on-looks awesome.
    As far as overheating goes, a new air dam is supplied with the kit that hangs lower than the stock so that fresh air can still reach the air dam and then the bottom of the engine. I have heard that the new air dam is very low and scrapes alot, but I have it and it is very thick and durable so scrapes will not break it or anything.

    Yeah im looking to just get the front piece not the whole kit. As far as being low.. you guys should have seen my vette maybe a inch and half off the road. Just avoid road bumbs and big dead animals in the road and everything was ok Would have kept the vette but sold it to keep my Ram SRT-10 now im sick of that payment to, so selling it and just modding the hell out of my WS9.

    i have the wings west kit for my v6 bird. . . looks good but does rub a lot and large puddles have ripped off the front lip twice. i didn't install the new bigger air dam and i never had any overheating problems. the ls1 may be different however. i plan on gettin this exact front lip for my ta, its only about 250 on ebay.

    JP Vizage also makes one but it's a lil too much. Plus, the idiots list it as "1998-2003".
