Ok...lets answer some questions

Its 35% tint, I dont need an L67 in there or an intake...period...cold air is sucked in from underneath the car. The rotors are Rototech cross drilled and slotted, I took these over the RSM rotors, simply because I didnt like how RSM slots go all the way to the perimeter of the rotor. If I decide I dont like the cross drilled, I can get another pair with just the slots. The ceramic pads are Wagner ThermoQuiets and absoultely no squeak at all. Silent and powerful pads.

My tire has a shifted belt so I need to do my rims and rubber ASAP, but first I will do a rotation to deal with the rough ride issues going on.

And yes surburban cities in Canada are much like the United States, and I live in a particularily nice area of Mississauga (west of Toronto) and its NICER then some American suburbs.

So it was a belt that was causing the shutter up front then?? Did changing the rotors help it at all??

Wow, forced into swoopy chrome!

I like the lighting effect actually. It'* like you're the only car in the world. Kinda spooky and cool. I may have to hit you up on those rotors for my car soon. She'* got a shimmy slowing down...


L67 comment = joke.

It isn't extremely loud, from my experience hearing it, but it is just NICE. Inside the car it sounds awesome, hence the reason I had the radio off the entire time Jim and I drove it around ( me driving)

It was good times that night...I clowed around with Drifter last night and the L47 and L67 are actually quite comparable in power..
