      For the Optima, contact this guy from eBay http://myworld.ebay.com/rustcity/?_trksid=p4340.l2559. Email is probably the best way. I called him and we ended up talking for an hour about batteries; needless to say the guy knows his stuff. All his batteries are NOS, he tests them/charges them, and if they are good he sells them for damn good prices.
      Thanx I sent him an email.

      It's honestly a great deal for skirts. You get every rivot and screw and you have the cleanest OEM skirts around because many fear to go to the dealer. I bought a new set 5 years ago that I wish I still had.

      For the record. This is the very route I've been wanting to go with my car since day one but obnoxious amounts of work and overtime leave me just enough time to barely enjoy time with friends and family that I dont see that often. I've bought and sold numerous manifolds and turbos that were supposed to be for my car. I always end up selling my parts to more motivated people than myself.(For more money of course)

      It's funny. I've never seen the OP post before and this thread has really got me itching to tear into my car.

      Thats his charge pipe, but you can easily make a similar design for a cold air with some piping in 3" in various angles. Ebay is awesome for this
