    Custom Fuel Rail Covers

    Ok, so I was wanting to dress up my engine a little bit and have decided to get some FRCs. I know what I want; FRCs with a matching custom air box lid like so:

    And I know where to buy them from, http://www.thecheckeredflagstore.com/frcs.php, I just don't understand the instructions that the site has posted. They make it sound very hard to install (saying it takes around 2 hours). Time is not an issue but I just don't understand some of their reasoning. So has anybody ever installed FRC and is it hard to do?

    Yes, I've installed quite a few myself.
    If you have some mechanical aptitude & small hand tools, you should be able to complete this within an hour or less.

    All together for th kind of paint job I would want, I would estimate spending around $350 for the air box and FRCs.

    Yeah, I am 15. I took a bunch of shit when I first posted pictures of my car about how I am going to wreck it or kill another person on the road, but the truth is I don't want to race or show it off. I just like cruising in it with my t-tops out, and how well the thing handles.

    Two possible answers for that question. 1) Parents make lots of money. 2)He brings in more than he spends......A job at McDonalds paid for my car slightly after turning 16. (I had a little help from my parents. Nothing I didn't pay them back for though.)

    Well my dad's first car when he was 16 was a brand new 1979 Brown Trans Am he bought new BYHIMSELF. So he promised me when I turned 16 he would get me a Trans Am. So I found one and had to pay for half. Pretty good deal. But he upgraded to an 2003 Vette in 03' so he always wanted another T/A so thats another reason.
