Those seem a bit too close to the bumper cover, but they're awesome in general. Perhaps it'll even be cooler if they actually melt the bumper! Paint it a slight blue around the tips, and you're golden.

FYI, the jack stand underneath is still holding them up in that pic...they hang about 3/4" under the cover... and I touched them when I got home, barely past warm after fifteen miles...
More pics, and a vid, tomorrow...

Those are some good tips, then. Nice find! I can't wait to see more pictures.

As promised...but the camera pwns me...damn battery died, kaput, no more charging....
Anyway, here'* what I got til the new batteries are charged.

From inlet side...

Outlet side...



At some point this spring, I'll clean those welds and hit them with header paint.

And now, what you've all been waiting for...


I'll do a better video tomorrow with the new batteries.


EDIT, Oh yeah, ditched the hitch, too. I wasn't going too, but on closer inspection, the welds were cracking, so I had them tear it off.

Wow those welds ARE nice for a Meineke job...

And I LOVE the sound, but it sounds like it needs a cough drop
(did the guy ever question about putting hooker mufflers on a PA???? )

I admit the guys in the shop looked at it a little funny til I opened the hood...

BTW, I found out that it'* NOT the steering lines buzzing on the headers every now and then, it'* the trans dipstick tube...I gotta find out if the W-body one will fit, after all, the headers were designed for the W-body...

That is awesome! I'd love to have been there to see the looks on those guys' faces when you popped the hood.

It'* actually not that obvious that it'* modded. The only thing that stands out is the headers.
