Bill,

I freaking LOVE IT! Now I have a plan. My question to you though is this: Where did you get the tips? Or rather what are they?

I actually did this and saw a nice difference. I used and it may sound stupid but works very well and had it on hand..... the black hose that you use for a washing maching to go into the drain. It is about the size of a quater to half dollar and flows air perfect. You can take a look on my cardomain page http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2145355/3 Just an idea.

I'll do that. I'm pricing out some stuff at Home Depot tomorrow evening, or Sunday depending on whether or not I visit lovely Connecticut this Sunday.

Bill,

Exhaust tips are $30 something new from GMPD. I put the new ones on the rear of the car, and used my old ones for the front (after cutting the shield and adding the stuff you see). That'* 30-something for the PAIR.

I now use rubber undercoating on the front scoops. It absorbs the road debris better without chipping like the bedliner did. Although I do reccommend bedliner material as a basecoat first.

The application of the idea would be totally different for an SE/SLE as opposed to an SSE/SSEi. The underpinnings of the lower airdam are totally different.


TJ, I saw your pic, but it appears that you sacrificed your foglights for yours? And that hose is AWEFULLY small to support the needs of an L67.

Alright. I'll see if I can find a pair in a junkyard if the opportunity arises. If not, I need a few things from GMPD and I'll order it all at once. Speaking of which, you don't happen to have a part number for them?

I think it was the Intense-style tubing.
