i see most of the user names are from eithe ls1gto, g8forum, etc..

after some research, i see not too many folks are using the 241 heads,
so excited to see how the cam works with those heads.

anybody have experience using the 241 heads with a *bigger* cam ?

Welcome to the forum, your goat is looking good...

I like the quad tips, but I am used to seeing them on the 04 bumper with the extra hole cutout on the right side. Is the trunk black also?

If you decide to sell those quad tips, let me know!

I'm gonna start slowly getting parts for my exhaust, and I want tips similar to those.

Do it, but have the center pillar removed and re painted... Poke's Goat is a perfect example of how good the SAP spoiler can look without the POS center pillar that muddies it up.
