What parts do YOU want to see?

As companies come and go, we see some parts become unicorn pieces that are sought after. LRB Speed is growing exponentially right now and wants to know what parts you want to see next!


We are currently working on:

Louvers -This has been a back burner project but with enough interest we can move it up the pipeline

BAC valve manifold - We have recently acquired a CNC Machine and look forward to offering a solution similar to the Rising RPM IAC manifold. Again with enough interest this can be moved up the priority list.

Hood strut kit - A drop in hood strut kit for steel, aluminum or fiberglass/CF hoods!

Spoilers! - We are in the early stages of prototyping aluminum roof hatch, duckbill, and nascar style spoilers


We've added a poll so please include other ideas or vote for what you would like to see next!

All three, however a price range for each would be nice before stating that I am in on those.

bleh, i was already working on putting together a hood strut kit since my old set from 5 years ago is blown and needs to be replaced. but i won't be advertising them for sale here anyways, so probably be fine if we both had a kit.

I second that, I've been dealing with some poor workmanship adapter for way to long. I'd pay up to $250 for a burly well engineered unit.

Ask and you shall receive, at half your budget. Link is for s5 trans, but also available for s4.

Landon, start boring out throttle bodies and machining replacement butterflies . I saw one company online offers this service, but never seen it discussed.

How about a idiot cluster bezel? A blank one at that, so that buyers can add their own gauges.

A sun roof? Most OEM ones are rusted out, and the FG ones are hit or miss.

Front splitterlip spoiler?

i had actually had plans of making the front air vents with slats of aluminum, i doubt i'll ever really do more than just 1 set for my own car but i always hated how fragile the vents were.

as i was cleaning my car i also thought about a dead pedal and monogram pedal pads.


i was like "daaaamn, this dead pedal sure is ugly, i wish i had a nice aluminum one!"

and since its a generic idea it will pass onto many other car models too.

How about strut bars? I'd love to see the triangular front strut brace that has been discontinued by Racing Beat and Mazdatrix.

Also something like the Autoexe underbody brace would be fantastic.

+1

it would be nice to have a nice Idiot cluster bezel that clips in without extra work.

And I would love a Front splitter

I was just thinking you guys could make some handles for the back hatch. They could mount to the latch loop on the hatch. Bend it back toward the glass for spoiler clearance.

Woah, awesome ideas going on in here!! Keep them coming, we have been checking despite not chiming in.

Here's where we're at!

-Louvers. These have started, and we have a near-finished prototype that's a few tweaks away from retail. Very excited about this, it was a challenge but we learned a lot from it, that we'll be applying to other parts!

-Hood struts got an overwhelming amount of votes! We're ready to get these going, a friend of ours from overseas lent us his set that he produced some years ago, so be on the look out for those!

-Spoilers - no news, but definitely a "want" to do item!

We made note of all what's in here that's within our realm of feasibility, and will begin working on them as time permits! Aluminum dash has long been on my list of "wants", so definitely look for that one sooner than later

Thanks so much!!

Details on the Hatch Louvers? I have an original Finish Line one in very good condition. Interested in replicating it in more suitable materials?

Hood struts for CF would fill a void. Not even the uber Chinese Soakie Tech offers them for CF

Don't know if I will be able to wait that long

Seriously, I am DONE with all of the +25 years old interior plastics on my FC!!

Which brings me to the next want/would like to buy:

Every single interior plastic trim (kick panels, A pillars, rear side panels [lower and upper])
