Well I just got email from fed ex that my package was found and will be here monday, what amazes me is that it was shipped on June 5th and it took over 30 days to get here considering i am 4 hours away, it’s unbelievable

Have you installed it yet? Mine is being delivered tomorrow. They beat their delivery date by 5 days.

Mine came in. I need to go open the box and inspect. I may wait to install until it cools down around here, plus I need to install my new sway bar at the same time.

Went out for a quick test drive. No problems. However I did stiffen up the unit by securing the middle to the bottom of the trunk. I was not too impressed with the lack of stiffness and the last thing I wanted was to have it flapping in the breeze.

Can you explain in more detail what you mean. The instructions have you bolt in 4 places on the rear.

Yes, that's right. There is also a front attachment point at the cross member. After I installed it, I felt there was still too much possibility for flex so, using another attachment kit provided to me by ZL1, I drilled a hole and bolted on the support and using heavy duty automotive velcro, secured the upper end to the trunk bottom. The diffuser is pushing up toward the car at these points so the velcro seems to be enough. I did this on each side. Firmed it right up.

Do you have info on the attachment kit? Any more pics?

You get two threaded aluminum dowels with the kit. There are several install videos on youtube that show how to install. You can use another kit or just get some hardware that will do the job. The dowel pictured was OK to use as it came. I cut down the other one about an inch because the trunk bottom was lower there due to the battery location.
