I love hearing the stories of these things going hundreds of thousands of miles.

You probably already know this, but be sure and keep close tabs on the cold start thermostat in the airbox. When the thermostat goes bad the flapper fails in the open position, resulting in a continuous blast of air heated by the exhaust manifold being piped into the intake, slowly but quite effectively cooking the MAF sensor to death. We have mild winters here, so I disabled the system and sealed the flapper shut permanently.

hah. Its been wired shut since approximately 1993. the hose is in place as its an inspection item on the smog test, but they don't/can't check the flap operation.

Cool, but they really dropped the ball on the exhaust headers.

What it needs is something more like this:

headers...

Can't agree more. The exhaust on that Rolls is about as wrong as wrong could be. Zoomies would have been a better choice. Generic header, straight pipe parallel to the ground. Not a hint of trying to match the style of the car. 90% good looking work, but the 10% that isn't really shows.

Lamborgini V-12.
Seems a bit much for the car, but, the guy said he drove it hard up in the Blue Ridge Mts. in North Carolina. Including in the rain.
