    Behold...BMS FTW.

    While I’m at it. Where can I get black bolts that fit this? I figure I’ll go to the hardware store and match it up but maybe someone here knows?

    Those bolts use an odd thread pitch so its hard to find dress bolts at hardware stores. At least in the US. My local store that is really well stocked had absolutely nothing. I ordered some chrome allen head bolts and washers online - m10-1.25 X 25

    Also, you're forgetting that those braces drop your 60' time to less than 1.2s!

    I like the way you think! I’ll test it out on the drag strip soon.

    But, didn’t they match the color you chose? Now they’re black and the braces are the original silver color? Still, it probably gained 1HP each just buy spraying them, so there’s that. Love the engine cover too!
