they are exact replicas. quite a few people have them on here and im looking at getting an el xr kit from them in a month or so.

but you can look them up in the commercial sponsor section of this site, they'd be able to help you out with more info and prices and stuff.

oh but being fibrglass they're not as strong as the factory ones. and tend to be more susceptable to scraps and things, as long a u dont go bouncing over gutters and things tho you should be right

you'll struggle to find the EF one, mainly only EL copies avaliable as the EL kit is much more poopular. And yes they both fit on EF and ELs.

Check out my gallery for the EF skirt kit. Smaller and less in your face than an EL. Nicer too IMO.

ha ha. EF nicer? nah. I mean there's not much difference. EF front skirt and bonnet vents are better. Everything else, EL.

Oh yeah, pick on the Lancer. Don't see your falcon getting less than 5L/100 :p, sure it ran an 18.48quarter but that's beside the point.
Pick on the ricey jap car when your front bar was clearly taken from an integra (oh i went there :P).
and twr7cx, I'm not big on the cat scratch bonnet vents :p. EL has so much more refinement.

I wouldn't go as far as to say the EL has refinment, we all know that the EL had plenty of cost cutting too...

I failed to see any cost cutting on my EL, short of an unpainted engine bay. Ran perfectly fine as far as i saw it.
Oh and thought you ef fans might appreciate this little comparison...
