    I guess he wants everyone to know his car has dual outlet muffler. Or maybe he's making a sarcastic comment to the tuner crowd, with their 5'' coffee can tip for a 2.0l engine.

    There's nothing better than laying upside down with your feet on the head rest and head wedged under the dash fishing wires through the firewall to realize they were right by your head the entire time. Installed my SLP Manual Fan Switch and 160 degree Tstat today. Now just waiting on the PHB, LCA's and Shock Tower Brace.

    ah yes, had a similar mess when removing the worthless remote start that the previous owner installed. What a nightmare! I dont miss the many installs i used to do.

    Just finished replacing the front daytime running/ turn signal lens housings. For such a simple concept, it sure was a pain in the rear getting them swapped out. But man what a difference!

    I change my rear shocks over to bilstein. While I was installing the new ones, one of the old ones exploded oil all over the garage floor. Never had a shock do that before.
    Also installed the short throw shifter.

    Wow what a difference, I may need to do this too since mine look like your old ones.

    98TransAmWS-6, yeah, the car almost looks odd now not being used to them standing out.

    Just cleaned the engine. Still needs areas cleaned up hard to get to but came out pretty good overall. Forgot a before pic but here is an after.

    Looks great! I don't believe that I have ever noticed hood insulation on our cars -- is that specific to the sleak beak or certain model years?

    My 1998 sleak beak had it too, I always loved the Arrowhead in the insulation also. Maybe it's just a 98 thing

    My 98 WS6 doesn't have it so I think it is a sleak beak thing. That or an aftermarket one or something.
