    I have seen alot of the 98 cars put down good numbers.

    TruFiber is pretty good. VFN is not as high quality. I have trufiber. Myfriend has VFN cowl on his camaro...its falling apart. Mine looks stock to the untrained eye.

    to prevent it on the new one, drill 4 or 5 1/4 inch holes on the bottom of the housing.. will never happen again, I've done it to all my F-bodies..

    edit:COULD just be the camera angle that makes the taillight look dark, but I just thought I'd put it out there

    if you look at the bottom of the housing, its 'wavy', drill a hole at the top of each 'wave' so that the holes are as low as possible for the water to drain out,

    when you get it out and look at it you'll know what i'm talking about
