Default Rear Diffuser Options...

So I'm still on the search for a non-ugly rear bumper option for the S14...

We had a rear lip discussion in the past I was wondering if anyone knows of any good rear diffusers that fit the USDM rear-bumper and look decent/add some functionality.

Most I've seen look to be custom. There are a lot of options for other cars that look like they COULD potentially work on an S14 but it's hard to say without mocking it up and where a lot of them can cost up to a grand it's hard to consider buying one just to see if it works.

9k Racing's Diffuser. You need to do some trimming though to make it full on functional.



This lifted lip needs to be trimmed to add more functionality to it. Been to lazy myself to trim it



There ya go pretty much the best photo's I have of it.

I've seen it before... I'm not really a fan of how it looks, it just doesn't seem to fit the proportions of the S14 well... my biggest gripe is that it's not wide enough.

I don't love it, but I do like the accord lip more than nothing. I don't really have any good photos showing it but they're kool photos where you can kinda see it haha.

there are a bunch of pictures of the accord lip in the rear lip thread...

my gripe with that one is that it's too narrow too..

I guess I'm trying to fix the issue with the S14 rear where it tapers in on the sides... I'd like a more straight down look and both the accord lip and the 9K diffuser exacerbate that problem rather than solve it.
