We figured out another way to get the same effect last night. Put the exhaust blowing into the rear bumper. It creates a high pressure pocket in there and keeps the air under the car from going up in there. I still think you would do well to rock a belly pan under the suspension. And of course a custom intake manifold and custom cams would get you the power to go faster too.

I actually like them on your car, and on your bumper. That color really pulls them off I think. I really like them man. keeps it clean too.

At least you painted them black... Of course you could stand to dab some paint on the screws, too. And I second Leafy on the custom cams, you've got a profile that's not designed for the stroke you're running, probably benefit a LOT with a custom grind.

Like the great Dave Coleman once wrote: "If you put a steel bumper protector around your exhaust to prevent a fire, you're a tool. If you put a steel bumper protect around your exhaust to prevent a SECOND fire, you're a badass".... Or something like that...

why not just put a flat piece of something under the bumper that connected a bit forward of the spare tire tub to sort of prevent air from getting under the bumper in the first place? thats a bit more of a sneaky solution assuming you could get it to work.

I like them black. I think it would have looked a bit more cool painted to match the bumper

I considered skinning the underside, but after looking at it, it would be a serious pain in the ass to do it so that no air would get in the rear bumper, so I went with this idea instead.

Like I said, I know it doesn't look the greatest, but hopefully it will serve its purpose and thats all I care about, this is my race car afterall.

This was a much "prettier" solution compared to my original idea of taking a 3" hole saw to the rear bumper 6 or 7 times.

Also, after YEARS of searching...I finally found my favorite factory J-Body wheel of all time!




Super pumped about these...I think they look perfect for the car, much better than my 00-02 SFGT wheels that all the paint was flaking off.

They are surprising quite light as well (they aren't actuall chrome...just chrome clad ie. plastic hub cap over the aluminum wheel).

chrome doesnt add much weight if any at all, really.... mere ounces at best.
