The other night I installed the verus engineering diffuser strakes. Super clear instructions and straightforward. Required a dremel, drill, some tape and that's about it.

Instructions are here: https://www.verus-en...install-manuals and attached.

A bit about the kit. It is pretty much perfect. Comes with extra bolt, washer and nut in every size in case you lose one, the quality of the carbon is very high. Dry carbon, perfect weave, light and strong.

Basic steps are you drill holes in the diffuser using the precise template that comes with the kit:

then bolt the diffuser back in with the two outside strakes on:

Took 2hrs max, and I'd had 2 beers before I started so...

Enjoy,

Dave

$900

Yeah they fit the cba according to the instructions, and you don't have to trim the sides of the diffuser, so even easier.

Thanks, I have been thinking about this for too long. Good thing to do while waiting for upgraded transmission.

That's gotta add 50hp! Must be nerve-racking drilling into carbon...
