I just installed this EVO style front lip from AIK Tunning last night, only $130 shipped! Hoping to get either APR or a local shop to build a splitter for underneath.
That is pretty sick!! I want to see it matched!

Honestly you probably could utilize the stock IS clips but my stock valance is too bent up and distorted, so it was tough to get all the clips to catch. I ended up taking off all the stock clips and drilling small holes in the lip. Then I ran bolts with washers though some of the stock clip holes and secured with lock nuts.

I would keep in mind oil temps as the wind hitting the pan is probably the most significant oil cooling medium. I read some research from jlevie on his spec e30 that a skid plate getting in the way by itself made a bigger difference than the stock oil cooler or keeping water temps down.

It makes sense because I've also heard of two oil temp sensors mounted in pan and oil filter showing a big temperature difference.

Fiberglass work + Huntington Beach = no surfboards in the garage? Does not compute.
Front air dam looks really nice, is there a core on the splitter that you laid the glass up to?

lol yeah I'm pretty scared about loading this car onto a trailer, given I have don't really have much experience pulling a trailer. Is the best way using a bunch of 2x6"? I was also probably going to rent a u-haul too for starters.

You may want to find a way to take it off to load it on and off the trailer.
