    Re: uh oh, loud ticking from the right side of my engine

    Headers and revshift motor mounts are on. (The motor mounts were a snap with the headers removed ) The only issue I have is that the cats are knocking on hard accelleration - I just have to tweak the install, I think. I can't give an opinion on the performance improvements yet since I'm laying off due to the knock. The motor mounts seem like they should have been from the start - a non-issue.

    It's not directly related, and they're bad pics, but here's the brake cooling experiment. I need to get those brake temp labels and compare which is better.

    Front Left, altered Z06 duct from ebay and 3" hose




    Front right, 3" to 2" silicone elbow (45 degree) then 2" hose

    Thanks JC. Any ideas on where to get the black molded plastic shaped tubes.

    The Z06 ducts are on eBay for like $20 each. Those are the black plastic ducts...
