I stole this idea from rch-13z, replacing my radiator shroud with one from an LS1 cut down to fit. Looks heaps better with my MACE CAI and not having the huge hole where the snorkel used to sit. I still have to clean it up a bit. And I want to find another V6 emission sticker to put where the V8 one was.
Also got some Whiteline sway bars (30mm adjustable front and 18mm rear) to go in next service.
Picked up 4 DBA T2 Slotted rotors over the weekend for $89 each at SCA. Guy at the counters reckons that was their cost price, certainly it's the cheapest I've ever seen. I'll wear down the current rotors, or at least the pads before changing them, but until then they are in the shed. Also towed a trailer about 1000km over the last weeks, car didn't miss a beat despite the KM's sitting over 300,000km.
As i have also secured a really good 12 month contract I'm going to be able to get a few things done for the old girl, outside of regular maintenance. My plan for the year is, 3.46:1 LSD, Extractors, Tint (35% octane) and a black headlining. haven't decided on the order yet though.
Very happy with the Manta. Sounds very good for an auto 6 and there's no drone that I've found. Only thing I'll mention is that when I first got it put in the tip extended just past the bumper, and it was A Lot louder in the cabin then it is now they've put the proper tip on and moved it in a little bit. Didn't make a difference outside the car though. I might have a video I can find when I'm at home, if not I'll take one but it'll be on my phone.
