Changed my V6 front to a V8 front with new stripes!!

I finally got around to buying a V8 front bumper cover and putting it on my V6 car. Since my car was intended to be a daily driver I knew a V8 was out and I would buy a V6. I really like the look of the V8 nose (who doesn't) and I bought a yellow nose off a wrecked Camaro and painted it black (myself) and installed new stripes that clearly indicate the car is not a V8. So, I have the economy of a V6 and the look of a V8, which is what I really wanted from the start. I'm sure some will flame me for this, but I like it. Rob

nice, i was originally going say i wouldnt be racing as someone will go around saying they beat an new v8 but i like the v6 decals. Nice job!

also as far as i can tell the v8's front nose the only diffrence is that they have the slot at the top in the center and then likes lines on the edge's of the nose, hard to explain.

Hey that looks good!

Also besides the mail slot and groove lines in the front lower corners in the bumpers, the lower grille is different too

The lower lip area wraps around farther and the mail slot. Only difference I know of.

It has some lines that flow back on the sides, next to the fog lights.

while im here, is the nose slot actually functional? I would think you would get a small boost in power if you were to attach an rubber hose from the front end (if functional, if not make it functional) and attach the hose to the TB with somewhere between that an custom air filter. It would be an decent ram air setup.

Thank you for all the feedback so far. It all comes down to personal taste. It was actually the mail slot the attracted me to the V8 nose in the first place. Right now I can't stop looking at it. It's like I bought the car for a second time. Rob

**IROCTPI - it's not functional

Looks great. I like the look of the flat black stripe on a black hood. Never seen that before.

Good eyes. Yes, I have the RS badging but it is not an RS. My goal was to let people know right away that it is not a V8 via the stripes. I will tell anybody that inquires that it is not an RS. I couldn't resist the nice RED emblems against the black paint. Rob
