Your dealer will cover the paint for five years? I was given understand the paint is covered only from factory/manufacture defects for a year.

Its too bad Holley doesn't build a mid intake specific for the 5th Camaro because they would sell a sh!* ton of them. Thought that was the case when I saw the SEMA pic :confused:
