I installed the aluminum cover today, and reinstalled the Panbar. The clearance between them is about 1/2 inch. So it is not an issue at all.

My car is 2014 V6 with manual transmission.

I have an LPW low profile cover on my GT that I got from Steeda. It looks great and fit right on with no modifications. The only thing I did was clear coat it to prevent oxidation.

Thank.
You plug the vent on the cover and continue using the Stock vent on the axle tube.

Thank you. I just did as you suggested.

I am wondering why the GT500 cover will come with another vent?

Have not swapped one but don't believe its the slightly larger sway bar issue on verts its the 2 big steel convertible braces that run length wise on the car, I had to remove those to swap springs on my '08 vert.
