Well, I'd say it's a one-off but are you sure this isn't a kit for another vehicle (a van, perhaps)? I've seen a few van kits that had this kind of an aggressive profile like this.

its not a KIT
its an oem bumper from another car...most commonly a benz

well glad this didnt get a much flaming as i had expected
dont want a fast and furious kit[or any 'kit'] or 3' tall wing obviously
just a slightly more aggressive track or gt style for the LS
it seems like it would be pretty easy to find similar width/length cars
to get diffusers and spats from to custom fit the since i plan on turning this daily into a track jerk

oh and not feeling the style on the yellow one at all..besides the wheels/drop and the front spats

I figured it would be a one-of since it looks nothing like the kits that are out for the UCF2x. I've seen the Odyssey bumpered Silvias so that thought did jump to mind, but what car that bumper was originally off of doesn't come to mind at all.

Pretty sure it's not off any kind of Mercedes though.

He want's you guys to fill in the blank and or read his mind.

PD, time to flap over to Japan during one of the many VIP meets during the season and study the rides. You can have that done here too, hit up Kennedy and see about some kit mods.
I see AMG themed styling so he can add some touches for a one-off.

I have access to a Supra TT LSD... Is it jus a matter of swapping the internals ? I'm looking to enhance the driving experience. I've done this before on my 929 with a RX7 VLSD, instant improvement.

was it out of a TT- 6 spd or auto? Th 6spd diffs were a whole different case/ring gear size. Not all TT diffs were LSDs either.

Keep an eye on my sig and you'll see something soon enough
