I am no engineer nor did I sleep at a Holiday Inn last or ever play one on TV, but I think it breaks up the airflow more with the honey comb instead of a straight steady supply it is broke up and more turbulent. Just guessing

Works for me. And I have stayed at a motel 6 where they left a light on for me.

The width isn't too wide but that tire is really tall I think they would work fine...I ran the 305/35/18 555rs with no problem

It's just for looks until down the road when warranty expires.

Spec SS trim clutch / billet steel flywheel
FRPP 5.4 4V performance intercooler
JPC braided clutch line kit
New slave cylinder
CHE K-member brace with torque limiters
Barton shifter
......................Need 500 " normal " driving miles to break in the new clutch. Looking to update the exhaust system, tweek the tune, another pass @ the dyno.....and then back to the track..

A baseline dyno, ( Mustang Dyno ) netted 481.4
Blower upgrade netted 656, ( FRPP kit )
Dumped the FRPP tune, did 723 then 741.
The latest dyno, over a year ago: ( have the uncorrected #'s also )

Don't worry, I'm in the same boat waiting to start modding the motor, that's why I went all cosmetic thus far.

I absolutely love the colors on your car. One thing for sure, these cars are definitely expensive to mod.

Converted the x pipe to an H today. Man that really makes a difference in the exhaust tone! Had my exhaust shop cut out the x section of the x pipe and weld in an H section that is 2.75 in size with a 2 inch connecting pipe. Added some volume to the exhaust but most def deepened the tone to a more muscle car growl. I'm very happy with it.
