you sick bastard...im loving those tophats...how invloved was it, cant forsee it being too dificult, something id like to consider to gain appx 2" of travel over my stock ones
i will hit you up for sure if you'd like to share some insights on what to look out for and what gauge you used and ID of...nevermind, i'll quit being lazy and do my own R/D
can you post pic showing underside of top hats...i wanna see the seat

also, can you shoot some info on your intake manifol....errrrr, correction, your mantake interfold cause that thing looks beefy, did you use a stock mani flange and just cut it, or did you build the whole thing from scratch...

one last thing, i can't believe that after all the **** you have made on your own that you still have not made a COP set-up? whats the deal? lol
