Dear Mr. Parker,
I just received the Vol 16, No.5/May 2010 issue of GM High-Tech magazine. To be blunt; I don't appreciate the photo on page 053, photo 14 of the American flag on the ground with headers on it. I'm not going to give you a lecture on American patriotism, but if this continues your magazine will have one less subscriber.

May 2010 issue, on Page 53, top right photo; who in their right mind thought that a picture of the U.S. flag lying on the ground with a set of headers on it was OK? Could you disrespect the flag any more? It's not to be used as a marketing tool. Just ask GM why one of the crossed flags of the Corvette is not a U.S. flag. The editors really dropped the ball on this one.
Thanks for including a photo of an American flag on page 53, laying on the ground with some dirty headers laying on it in the magazine. As an Army combat veteran, we fought to protect your freedom of the press, but what total [expletive deleted] you guys are to do that and then print the photo of it in your magazine!
I received the May issue today, on page 53 you have a picture of the American flag on the ground with a set of headers on it. Are you kidding me? I have friends that have died for this country! And your magazine desecrates the flag! I'll be cancelling my subscription also. By the way, "Fast with Class" refers to Buicks, not a Cadillac, idiots.
Placing an American flag on the ground was an error in judgment. I hope that you can forgive us.
I had a question about the SLP PowerFlo exhaust system you installed. I have the same setup in my '01 SS and I can't help notice the huge mufflers behind each tip when behind the car. Did you guys notice this while installing this system? And if you did, was it fixed? Because it sure looks odd.
I believe that is inherent to the design of the exhaust, it didn't bother us. Especially considering the same could be said for any late model Corvette.
Give Me Tech
I've been a longtime reader. I've had a subscription before I bought my first GM. I'm the proud owner of a 2000 Camaro SS and a 1996 Impala SS. I like the latest articles where you were fixing up the old Impala with bolt-ons. I like my Impala because I can use cheap 87-octane for my daily driving needs. I would like to see in future articles a way to add power to the Impala and still keep iron heads on it so it can still run 87. I also wouldn't mind seeing an article on maybe a custom twin-turbo kit for an LS1 Camaro-something on the cheap for us who can't afford an APS kit. Keep up the great mag.
Since the APS kit is no longer available, your only choice is to fabricate a kit if you want twins. We've been itching to do something like this for a while, and plans are currently in the works.
