Dukes Dynamics Quad diffuser first look

Just got it in today after.... almost 20 days?

First impression: Looks good. Nice fins and gloss finish.

I decided to just try the tabs out and see if they fit into place. I didn't even put it in yet, but as I aligned it and put it on top of my stock diffuser.... It doesn't line up. The diffuser is too "straight" while our diffusers curve in a little bit.

I took my old one off and tried to clip these in forcefully to see if it may just need a push. Got one side in and the middle clips were a bit thicker than I had hoped. Needs a bunch of shaving.

Overall, I think it is possible to make this work. No custom fabrication needed, but I'll have the shop shave the clips and work its way through...

Stay tuned. First look below..

Finally pulled the trigger I see! Took long enough

Sorry to hear about the fitment issues but I'm sure it won't be that big of a deal. Cant wait to see it mounted
