It's tough to see in the pictures .. but it doesn't look like the pipes have had any exhaust through them (real/fake?)- I'd like to see some shots of the up-turn from underneath the car/overall routing - car is to nice I'm betting fake and they relate to the big Ford pictured outside the garage.

They are a brand new install, not blackened yet.

No, a 454 Mark 4 build to LS6 specs, sort of. Only 10:1 compression, but a bigger cam to get the 450 HP. It has to be able to breath, right?

Always a comedian in the crowd. I noticed the lower rear tail pipes on the Elcamino still attached. Good luck on your project

You had to give it away. You had a hint though as you have seen the e-mails on the project for the truck.

What is life with out a laugh. I had to set them there, didn't I?

Should have used the straight pipes with old style rain caps /flapper.

Well, that might be to big and a little tacky. Although I could use one for the exhaust, turn the other one around and use it for ram air. Not a bad idea!
