Mine were installed in the back, where the exhaust bends. We ran two down tubes to vent the exhaust away from the cabin along with the heat from a F/I motor. We added a bit of heat shield material as well.

really, Pete?! you're still carrying those huge trash can mufflers around?
is it for a precise center of gravity/weight&balance thing you're going for to offset the weight of the F/I parts?

Yep, they flow air past the rear fascia. When Chevrolet deigned the 5th Gen they paid attention to the details

For guys like Robert that are planning on 200+mph it's a good idea to enclose it..... for the occasional 130 spurt not so much.

They did do some cool stuff with the ZL1 to keep it on the ground at speed

.......... and yes, that would be a mod

I meant doing an aero panel at the tail... he'd never put the stock BUM's (big ugly mufflers) back on.


.... would he?

Is it considered a mod if you put stock parts back on to gain performance???????
