Also, by sticking with the 4.0, you stay within the parameters of the unibody's structural capabilities.

If you managed to install it with those headers you could just run them through the firewall and never worry about heat in the winter again...

...but there is the whole carbon monoxide and dying issue... always a drawback...

I'll get pics tomorrow. The damage seems minimal... but, he hit me at about 30-35 mph and I was at a stop light. He was on a '79 Suzuki GS650, old heavy bike.
Dented the bumper but the diamond plate endcaps held up.
The hatch did not get crushed in cuz of my speaker box being wall to wall. But the hatch exterior has a punch break in the fiberglass, so it needs replaced. Which in turn will fix the window.
Then I looked underneath, the unibody rails are bent at the last 8-10". The hitch took a lot of the bikes weight and the mounts did the damage.
To the body shop, getting an estimate, and I noticed a bend at the forward bottom corner of my side window... the body is buckled.
He hit me like I was a brick wall. His head (no helmet) came through the back window and bounced his face off of my spare tire.
