  1. That's a pretty strange question bro'
  2. Tried painting one wheel all black, along with the caliper yellow. Will do them all like this. Have the funds available now to lower the car, stay tuned πŸ‘
  3. Funny thing is, when I did the rears on mine, it seemed to fix a noisy pulley πŸ˜‚
  4. If you've been charged 1hr labour for plugs, then I'd be considering the possibility the rears havnt been done. On the 40series at least, they are done at 150k. I just did the rears on mine, and was time consuming but not difficult
  5. I've done exhaust mods as well so this sorta stuff goes hand in hand. All I can say is have a poke around ur engine bay & check out ur intake. If ur happy with it, then leave it. πŸ‘
  6. 1. Removed charcoal mesh from airbox lid. 2. Cut off the chamber from the intake pipe, and covered the holes with silicone joiner & adhesive. Relocated vacuum nipple from the discarded chamber to the airbox lid. 3. Swapped vacuum hoses around to keep intake valve open permanently to the top runner. Seems to have more pop up top, and a noticeable roar at full throttle. I'm happy πŸ‘
  7. Well shortly after stating research shows its a waste of time, I had a good look at the intake & I didn't like any of it, so I've done a couple things...... Surely there's something wrong with me haha. I've quit smoking couple weeks ago, so have the need to tinker with things πŸ˜‚ Will post pics once tidied up
  8. I despise protectors in general, bonnet, window dash etc. I've never used them and never had an issue apart from this aurion dash, and one in a 1980 commodore πŸ˜‚ He mentioned there was one from another dealer in another city/state but basically told me they won't help
  9. Got a phone call yesterday saying the claim was approved & booked a date. .... Then received another call few hours later telling me the replacement dashes are obsolete and they can't help me. At all. 😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠
  10. Can say there's a noticeable improvement how it drives. Goes to show how much a bottleneck can hold back & negate other exhaust mods. Regarding drone, well my definition of drone is vibration in the cabin at certain rpms/load. This car has a boomy sound now, but nothing extreme. With the rear section done, and rezzie deleted, I would bet theres nearly a 10kw increase over stock, it honestly feels so much more lively at full throttle, and is so much more effortless at medium throttle around town.
  11. Success!!! After hearing stories from others that deleting the front resonator does nearly nothing, I was a bit worried..... But... It seems once the rears have been opened up, the front resonator was holding back the sound. I'm tempted to replace the last cat with a 100cpi version, but its about as loud as I dare take it without getting resonating drone through the cabin. This is the sound I wanted all along, and some of the engine burble can be feintly heard over the hum.
  12. After driving around with the custom rear section for awhile, I've decided to do a front resonator delete to gain a bit more sound. Booked in tommorow for $150. Inside the car u can hear it fine as it is, but I had somebody drive the car while I listened outside, and it sounded damn near stock apart from a slight hum. I'm hoping deleting the front rezzie won't bring back drone
