Did you get the Retro or the Illusion? I like the Illusion, but unfortunately it is advertised as only being made with dual exhaust cut-outs, and I'm doing side exit, so it won't work for me.

Retro, fore sure! I went with the Pteazer over my current, because it was more retro than my current. I wanted to get rid of the look of the factory backup lights.

I've purchased the Q-logic kick panels, from Crutchfield. I'll be able to put to use some nice Orion components I had installed at one point, in my old show vehicle.

On another note, unbeknownst to me, Crutchfield maintains their history of all orders. It was quite interesting to be able to go back and see orders I made all the way from 11/14/1996. Just old enough to drive.

Update on the Q-logic pods, they are made specifically for the 4 door, not convertibles. I had to return them, unfortunately.

I'll post some updates, here in the near future.

Replaced the old valve cover and throttle body, purchased replacements and had them powder coated. I'd say it's quite a significant improvement.

I would have had the upper intake powder-coated and left the cover off.

I know that.

As I said I would have powder-coated it.

Tell you powder-coat shop that he can do the bake normally @450f and the intake will be fine.

I have tested and done both an upper intake and plastic valve cover.

Good to know. There's a good chance I stick with the Chrysler cover.
