    That's a great pic of under the hood. Seems like were getting close. That looks production ready.

    Look closely. The above GT500 is sporting a passenger side oil separator, a rather large one at that.

    You are correct. I was trying to figure out what that was, considering the position, but as soon as I read your post, I was like yeah! I see it clearly now. So next question, stock or aftermarket ?

    I can't believe Evan glossed over it. So I dropped him a note...

    I can't wait for mine to show up at the dealer so I can pop off the plate atop the blower case and dimension it. From there to George at MGW where can whip up some plate and deep etch the cobra snake (or any other vector for that matter) on his laser machine.

    Are the cam covers gray plastic or aluminum/magnesium?

    Is that a lift support for the hood? No prop rod needed

    Was not the colour green I was hoping for. Recent company photos are much more candy coloured.

    Looks like that catch can has a drain hose to send the collected oil back into the engine.
