Fabbed covers were too much of a pain...so I gutted some stockers and painted "Pontiac" blue.
Also take a look at the pics...this is how "they" think it should exhale vs. my thinking

Thanks, should be completely done by the end of the weekend. Then schedule a time with my BA tuner
I have an idea of what she should make, but dyno will tell, it is a stalled auto so....track times are more important to me than dyno numbers.
