I noticed the metal honeycomb filter on my JLT oil separator was constantly falling out of the hole. I found a easy solution. I wrapped it in a bit of plumping thread. Went in tight and now holds great.

Did some mockups this morning in regards to my exterior mods. I broke things up into three phases.

Phase 1: Install some front and side winglets for a subtle effect.

Phase two: 19x10 SVE GT350 wheels in graphite, lowered on Eibach Pro springs, and a blacked out GT grill.

Great job on the mockups, but I would definitely be doing tint a lot sooner. It was done within the first two days of picking my car actually, probably a lot more necessary down here in south Florida though!

Hey thanks man! I was thinking of going a chrome / silver route but the more I look at the blacked out look with gray wheels the more I like it.

I'll look into that window tinting thing sooner before summer hits.

Don’t have it off hand but if you search Velossa Tech Big Mouth you’ll find their website. They may still have a sale going on.

Installed the Big Mouth and GT grill today. What a PITA that was. Ended up breaking some of the tabs on the stock v6 grill but at least I didn’t break any bumper clips.

looks cool. i wonder how much it well help
I haven’t noticed a big difference. I believe the stock grill actually brings in air better to the overall engine bay due to the larger openings. The gt hoods tend to have air vents on the top so that probably offsets the smaller honeycomb openings. Right now its better than stock until the headers start heating up lol.

Got my Eibach Pro Kit installed. What a fun and tough job that was. Learned a lot and came back with some tips and tricks for installing lowering springs.
