I am not, nor have I ever been a member of the tuner community. Body kits and "go-fast" stickers make me laugh -- especially when I lap overly modded cars in whatever stock vehicle I might be driving. Impul, a Japanese tuner, came out with the hideous monstrosity you see above. Personally, I think that rear wing can be classified as a hate crime. The grille isn't as bad, though, and I quite like the dark wheels. But hang on, there's something going on here that's more than skin-deep.

There's a new ECU that promises more power and improved response, an upgraded throttle body, stiffer shocks and springs, better brakes and a stainless exhaust. Okay, I'm intrigued. What do you think? Would you keep it stock or rice this baby out?
