The Z looks awesome! Actually both cars look pretty good. :) Dare I ask what a "Sound generator mod" is?

AlpWhitE46 08-01-2013 11:40 PM

Thanks! got some goodies for it coming up!

This is a shot of inside the engine

The 3.0 only came with this idea... that from the intake, it feeds the sound into the firewall and through to the passenger sides foot area so that you hear the sound in the cabin.

In tube 9 in the picture, there is a foam you can remove so you can hear the sound louder.
I removed that, and then in #6 on the picture there is a very large foam which i didn't remove... But thats for extra loud noise in the cabin lol.

Basically after 3000 rpm, it kicks in quite loudly...

heres an example

Here is another of them 2 side by side before the swap

Just ordered some goodies, excited for the arrival

06-08 3.0SI's have them too - I want to remove the foam in mine, but when I looked at the engine, I got all flustered - LOL... I'm mechanically inclined, just not with engines... how hard was it for you to remove?

I missed the reply before, but thanks for the detailed explanation of the mod. Very interesting... :)

Probably took 5 minutes.. its actually very easy!

snap a picture of your bay
(more importantly the area that is close to your driver side)

AlpWhitE46 08-16-2013 06:43 PM

Spacers are on!

Here is a before & after pic (in the after pic the car was not driven yet so suspension has not settled)

You're gonna hate putting her away in a couple of months, like I did my first year. At least you got her relatively early. I got mine I'm October!

ZetchE46 08-17-2013 12:47 AM

Cars look very nice! well done.

AlpWhitE46 08-18-2013 02:06 PM

haha i know, but i'm not gonna full put her away. Going to drive it on days where its decent, no snow / salt!

AlpWhitE46 08-23-2013 05:45 PM

AlpWhitE46 08-23-2013 07:40 PM
