-Have a stubby antenna but have yet to succeed at taking this one off
-Polished the hell out of the lights!
-Also need my front bumper re-done

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

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

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?

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!
