it sucks when you're stuck in stop and go traffic as well as with the mods I had it made it nearly impossible to idle through a parking lot or neighborhood. I couldn't go 10mph, it was either accelerate real fast or not at all. The cams made it even worse to drive with so I sold it.

Thats what i was talking about, not the underside. The factory barely gets coverage on the underside anyway.

why do people take it off then?

should i just put it back on?
People take them off cause there ugly, but they do serve a purpose, the help to disapate heat. You can disapate more heat by directing it down and out, vs. up and out.


I never thought this topic would be of any interest to anyone. lol, hilarious.

And it'll take years for the heat to really do any damage to the top coat.
