Krusher, the idea was to make him ask WHY. Plus I was just in one of those moods...

J-Rob already answered that. The clearances on the sides of the motor are different between the different cars. The headers have to be designed to accommodate those differences. The FRPP are not. Happy now Vic?

well, my favorite band is...


and their mascott is called Vic Rattlehead.


i couldnt decide what i wanted as a user name, i first wanted something to do with cars/tbirds, then i thought what if i get rid of my tbird and get something els then id have to change my name, ill never not like megadeth so i figured that would work, plus only the real diehard mega fans will know who Vic is.

Hmm.. and here I thought it had something to do with valveknock..

Guess I've never paid much attention to the artwork and just listened to the music.
