Good job done on the cheap, which reduces the time taken to recoup the costs of the mod in fuel savings. So now there are two boattailed cars running around in SC. Expect an occasional pull-over from curious constabulary until all of the local cops are familiar with your car. In addition to your better mpg's, have you noticed an improvement in your high speed performance. A boattail does wonders for your 60 to 80+ mph times on the interstate, the equivalent of a horsepower boost to your engine effective at higher speeds.
