    But they make the car go faster!!!

    But in all seriousness, I don't think they flow with the car. The clean all black look is where it's at

    That's amazing for a big block in Yuma heat. Your cooling system is doing its job perfectly.

    As far as the graphics, I agree with most here. The car looks better without them. Maybe they would make your garage fridge faster?
    Maybe you could ask for some sponsorship? Tires and fuel for a few autocrosses? That could pay for their advertising on your car.:p

    I agree with the rest of you and I have removed the graphics. She looks much better dressed all in Black.

    Those are glasspacks that stop at the rear end. As you can imagine the 540 was very loud with only the long tube headers and an X pipe without any mufflers. I put the glass packs on to keep the cops from stopping me for being too loud. She is still loud just not as bad.

    Yes sir,

    She seems to be happy and settles at around 195 degrees. I have not seen her over 200 degrees for awhile now.
