I love the look. Went to the drag strip the other day and some guys wanted to take a look under my hood. They didn't have a clue what they were looking at and it was pretty damn boring haha.

I might try and plasti-dip mine in a metallic yellow to match my AFE scoops and see how that turns out.

Yeah, yellow would look nice, but the Chevy Orange pops with the Montego. Just a little different than the other rides I've seen.

Chevy Orange may look awesome! Better than the red for sure.

Thx... Just ordered AFE Stage II Pro with Scoops. The scoops are getting the Chevy Orange treatment also along with the valve cover. Need to find some small blue filters for my Forge DVs. Also picked up a new ER CP in Anodized Black with 2 Meth Bungs. It will match my Forge DV's and I won't need adapters for my nozzles from Aquamist. Should look clean...

Thats an awesome deal! I'm thinking of getting mine painted in metallic red from my local bodyshop

Quick question: Do your BC Racing Coilovers make clicking noises in the front when you turn your steering wheel ?

If not, what do you think could be the problem with mine?
the bolts on your steering rack could be loose
