I ordered a MyRide diffuser and it took me a few weeks before I installed it, but when I first got it the fitment was off on the left and on the inside exhaust area (touched my HKS exhaust) ...And then once I finally got it painted and installed I was so happy and it looked so good that even the shop that did all the work said the fitment for a replica was so good that they wanted me to send them pics! I will post pics of it soon.
Could you post pics? I have the HKS hi-power as well and I am curious about the fitment.
A tube of silicon sealant. Thats it really.
You need at least two people to help u out, because u have to force the alignment, at least I had to on mine.. I lined it up w to the two reflectors.
Apply the sealant generously all over the inside of the diffuser and force it into place on r car. Make sure both sides are aligned and make sure the diffuser isn't touching ur exhaust..
Then use painter tape to hold the diffuser into place while it drys. U will need at least two people to hold it into place and someone to tape the diffuser onto the vehicle. Once taped and in place, let it dry for atleast 7 hours, but follow your sealants instructions for curing time. One it's done use the sealant to fill in in the gaps ( if u have any, mine had tons).,
Then to fill in the gaps I taped along the edges of the rear and the diffuser to make sure the sealant doesn't the body, and i filled in the gaps. Be careful and apply the sealant carefully.. You can then paint the sealant thats filling in the gaps the color of ur car so it blends in..
And voila, diffuser installed.
Seems like everyone is using 3m tape, I didn't want to worry about the diffuser falling off on the highway .The climate in my part of the worldis very F' d up. So I glued that Isht on
Maybe its just me, everyone else is giving it a 9/10, with that said this is my first time doing a body part myself, so take my complaints with a grain of salt.
on to the pics.

fitment of tips is tight, but it doesn't touch.
Now for the gaps, I have filled the gaps with silicon sealant, u can clearly see where large amounts were needed. I am currently repainting the bumper, and painting over the sealant in black to match the color of the car for a more flush look. if u look closely u can see where the gaps are, The gaps are dependent on how u line it up the diffuser. Its also very possible, my piece got bent during shipping, because it was packed w no bubble wrap or any form of protection.. so that could be another reason why my fitment was off compared to everyone else.
could you post more pics from behind the car, etc? you just painted the whole diffuser gray?
