nope its the old Impul kit, which VIS copied with permission and now call the Octane series. If you check IMPULs site you will see it listed under the 2004-2008 series.

http://www.impulamerica.com/VERSA_PRODUCTS.html
there are 3 IMPUL body styles for the Versa, each only slightly different from the other. The kit on the Car is the same one Fox Marketing ordered from Impul America and used for his SEMA show versa with the crapy turbo.

The install required a few custom hangers to give it a little better support and help keep it in place. I almost wish i had ordered the VIS instead because it would have fit without any extra hangers which create new stress points on the bumpers for cracks but since i paid 400usd in the end for both bumpers and no shipping im not going to complain much.

Heres mine-

and the Versa -

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2887453

I gotta do some updating with the versa cardomain.
dam nice, once i finish up the V my friend and i are debating on buying S2000 or a 240 sx and completly working em over, i need another deployment to afford that tho lol.

are you thinkin about gettn a mandrel bent exhaust down the road?
oh and for that gtspec brace, any difficulty putting it on? or was it easy and bolt straight up?
As far as the exhaust down the road im all for it but, lot of other things come first. Even once i get the Tanabe or even the IMPUL exhaust if i can swing it ill leave the 2.5in pipe i have in place and get brakes or something, then after everything else is done and im working the turbo ill probably get it since ill be removing the resonator then. But... thats a ways down the road:auto:

In addition i actualy dont like the GT spec brace. It didnt sit flush over the stock Tie Bar and it was an absolute nightmare to get the bolts in. If you look at that portion of your frame you have 2 big holes on each side, one that the GT spec bar uses and the other for you to get a wrench into to hold the nut on top. I ended up bending a cheap wrench to get it up there and hold the nut inplace while i put the bolt in from the bottom which is not a good idea anyways incase it falls out it will come clean out and leave nothing to hold the brace behind(something i plan to fix when i get back in the shop but i did put a glob of locktite on em so should be good)

Anyways i ended up pulling off the stock tie brace ( i have a pic of it on my car domain page sitting on a rollaway tray) and then put the GT spec one on, i would get better performance from both but i didnt have a stack of grade 8 hardware to put in there so i wasnt comfortable throwing a stack of washers under the bar..i know im a wuss but dont like taking chances with anything.

Side note: I am very very interested in the stuff Superskunk is talking about, the UR racing bars or whatever, if you check their web site they have a nice looking front tie bar that looks like it is sturdier than the GT spec brace and has the added benefit of being part of a complete matching set (front Strut bar, center mid bar, rear strut bar, front tie bar, rear tie bar, rear frame crossmember and a few other pieces make up the full set. all in ur white with their logo and all that and from what i have seen its all quality stuff) If i end up getting that full set ill sell you the GT spec bar for cheap if you want.

i seen the VIS kit on ebay for like 465, and it costs like 200 to ship... but it is local to me and if i were to pick it up they would charge me 150, a handling charge.... that is total BS! why would they charge me 150? if that were the case why didnt they just post the price at 615?
