Default Stressed out...need advice

i bought as you are all probably aware now a Mopar nonturbo inferno red ground effects kit off ebay for a great price. The pic in the ad is of a GT vert with the effects on. I thought this would work on my car. The kit is to be shipped out on the 15th....Now i learn there is a special turbo kit as the nonturbo kit will not fit the turbo front bumper as the curvature and depth of the bumper lip is different. So here is my dilema...would the car look funny without the fron pieces on? What if I just put the side skirts on? Would I look like a incomplete idiot or would it look alright? I would than sell the front and rear pieces...I hope..I don't know what the demand would be.? All advice welcome? Or should I try to get my ebay paypal money back and cancel the order? Can I do this? She does not have any turbo kits? I guess what I would like to do is go with just the sidesills but I need to know if this would pass. Funny how something like this can stress you out .Thanx to all who have helped,emailed me, etc...Can anyone photoshop a car with the side effects on or have pics of a car I can see with just sides on of somesort of side pieces

The difference is just a larger opening for the turbo model for more airflow over the intercooler. I don't think you will have a problem mounting it. There is no chassis difference.

A better question is "is it a 'vert specific kit?".

Wish you had a GT as I need a new front facia for my red '03.

I am getting a refund for the amount -25.00$ for paypal return. I decided I am getting mixed reports as to if this kit will or will not work. I have obviously angered her which I am sorry, but i did not know there were different kits from Mopar, and she does have to acknowledge that she does have a GT silver vert turbo with the kit on it...so that is why I was confused. Just glad it is done. I also didn't like the idea of all those holes in my car, which I did not realize had to be drilled. Oh well another chapter done in my life to learn from. We all make mistakes.

I was told I would be notified by paypal via email when the funds are back in my paypal account. Does this mean I will see a credit to my visa?

I believe that the money will go into your PayPal account. You can transfer the funds back to your bank if you'd choose. I don't think it will go back to your Visa if you paid via PayPal.

Phil

I have heard of people installing the N/A kit on a turbo, I believe it restricts the intercooler opening slightly. As you can see in the photo, I have the N/A kit installed on my 'Vert. I love it, gives a different look to the car.
