Exhaust piping diameter counts too... that'* where it'* at. Personally, I'd go 2.25 or 2.5 inch mandrel bent, custom piping.

Yes everything that you can do to the exhaust factors in wether its going to be +\- for gains. If you dont have enough backpressure the motor will be crap. As far as having to much backpressure I really havent heard stories about that, but can only imagine the trouble that will cause.

No my wing cannot do that and i have had alot of **** about that wing from alot of people, not just you and I do plan on removing it as soon as I can get my car painted. As for the exhaust thing, I meant something different from what you guys thought I thought. Yes I understand that loud exhausts will give you much more horsepower if put on properly. My friend has a nice single tipped Pilot Exhaust on his neon and he gets much more horsepower then he does from his stock exhaust. The you have to factor in backpressure and all this other stuff. That is why people like to spend alot of money on exhausts, cause that is one of the main things that if done up correctly will give u a shitload of HP. The same guy with the neon is getting full cat back exhaust with new headers and cams. And no that is not the same wing i have on my car, that wing is specifically designed for roof instal, not trunk. My wing is kind of the same thing, with carbon fiber winglets, but the winglets are just a little bigger.

I see... You put a wing and a fart can on a bonne... and its not rice... but if you put it on a honda its rice... sorry.. I was totally in the dark

how do you mount an aluminum wing to a roof?... I hope you used magnets. cuz the job of filling those holes when you go to paint your car is going to be a nasty.

sorry to say but I do not have a fart can on my bonne. Yes my car probably is considered rice, but I rather be driving that then an import, That'* all I have to say. I know how to mount wings on, what I was asking is how do you post a picture on this website.

send the pic to me at [email protected] and i'll post it for you. you have to have the pic hosted elsewhere before you can post it here. and on the rice part, it all depends on how it looks, i've seen cars with aftermarket wings that look pretty good, then again i've seen a early 90'* Kia with a wing that had Boeing rushing to catch up on
