BBK CAI, BBK Shorty headers and H-pipe, Flowmaster 40's. C4 tranny with 3500 stall and .410's. Got the car for a steal IMO, and its gonna be a little summer project. Looking now to add a H/C/I, and a shot of gas. Let me know what yall think!

    That's a badass truck! Haha. The car is nice, too. Little too much cowl though.

    i got the car for 2500 as it sits. And in my area, thats a really good deal. Most paint peeling stock fox's with flowmasters are 4k.... And thanks on the truck. its got a pretty good built 390 in it, runs real strong.

    Oh and it got the 5 lug conversion. What sold me was the interior is VERY clean, and a few of the mods done are pretty tasteful. (5 lug, C4 and stall) and its adult owned.

    Looks pretty damn good minus the cowl, nice grab! The truck looks awesome too, I'm interested in pics of the 390 as well.

    I think people maybe dissin the cowl hood because it's a little tall and hard to see over when driving.

    most people are commenting because it's a 500-hp cowl on a 200-hp car.
