do you think that would lower our head room at all? Is that bracket modifiable i wonder?

if I am going to wear a helmet at 140mph i need at least 1.5 - 2 inches more head room.

I sat in a buddy's Camaro that had these last year and when I got in on the passenger side to look/feel how they felt, I don't remember me head touching at all. It may lower the overall seat some due to the bottom don't look as tall.. I honestly don't know for sure though.

I would suppose in Colorado that is true... But in Texas with the 9.3 days of moderately cold weather we have annually, Not so much... Yes, I'll grant that occasionally it does get really cold... Start the car, drive a mile or two to a stop and rob store, leave the heater on flame thrower for three minutes while you run in and tank up on hot chocolate or coffee, and your good to go.... JMO Whats the altitude up there anyways...

I may need to challenge Camaro21 to a race and higher is better....

Yes you will gain a couple inches of head clearance with these as I have these and needed the extra headroom as well and they are perfect.
