Something about that bodykit rubs me the wrong way...

i think the worst parts of the car are the wheels, the nostrils, and the huge wheel wells. some other problems are the headlights, the taillights, and the fact that it looks like a jbody with an eating disorder.

it's alright... kinda like the spoiler idea, something different for those cars, not a huge fan of the body kit, erases the cars lines like three.eighteen. said.

Still, if it was a choice between stock grandam and that one, I'd take that one for sure.

Those wheels are cool. Cool like chrome 3 spokes from 1995.

as far as i know you cant fit anything bigger than 18's on a GA without some serious modifications

things dont match on the car, the hood looks ugly wit the ground effects, the lip spoiler looks like its gonna poke somebody from 20feet away when ur gettin out of the lot, and is it just me or does the side of the front headlights has a bump??

clearly intended for a younger audience, most likely a PG 16

Was the hood just shut or is that gap part of the car?
The spoiler is a bit clumsy. The seam between the fender and spoiler, by the headlite looks like a dent. The wheels don't look horrible, but there are other designs that would look better (in polished aluminum) Otherwise, it isn't a bad looking styling exercise.
Is it the 3.1 V6?

I have yet to see a body kit that actually looks good and fits tightly over time. I wouldn't waste my money on one. I would spend my money on suspension improvements and reliable performance mods. The G/A actually doesn't look that bad stock.

Its a GT so im guessing its a 3.4 170hp??
I just finsihed wondering a GM dealership looking for a new S10 and saw the specs.

I think the ram-air gives it about 5 more hp and torque.

The GT is 175/205. Not that slow, but this one probably weighs an extra 500lbs.

i thought the vents were actually sealed shut

yeah the hood scoops arent functional:banghead: That hood came factory, the ram air is actually functional from the front grille
