Notallthere's Vibe

Recommended Posts

Got bored today and fed up with hanging trim.

Before:

After:

So far I have noticed a little more power below 4000 rpm but nothing that will knock your socks off. The thing is fairly quiet until you get on it then it is more vocal.

If I get the rest of the car cleaned then I will take more pictures.

Definitely makes the engine bay look a little better. Cleaning it would go even farther. :badGT:

There is not much difference but the top on the 05-08 is a single lid but the 03/04 is a double (clamshell style) with a power outlet in the bottom of it.

I wanna see a brighter pic of the headlights. I originally wanted to get those but I am going to be color matching mine to the car.

I bet it looks much better with more lighting.

Where did you order the sway bars from? I am saving right now for a full aftermarket coil over suspension kit. I want sway bars! lol.

Found them in Winnipeg Kijiji (classifieds) for $150 so about $180 shipped. They were unused and so far the rear seems a little more flat but I have not been driving very spirited.

let me know how they feel on the turns. i plan on upgrading my WHOLE suspension before I start my build. I want to make sure everything can handle what I am going to start at the beginning of the year.

Slotted rotors and ceramic pads rust is from the bath I gave her. MB Wheels from Discount tire

Wait for the ultimate mod

Trailer Hitch

The rear sway has helped a bit I am able to stick in the on ramps a little fast and more comfortable. I do not notice any difference from day to day but I will see. The front sway bar is going in next month hopefully.

Very nice! Once you get both bars on you'll notice a difference for sure.

One thing I'd say to do appearance wise is look on eBay for the G6 Pontiac dart and replace yours. The Vibe darts just look cheap and horrible IMO lol. Probably could get front and back darts including shipping for around $5-8

i tried looking for some nice ones and couldn't find a nice one. so.. that is why i just wrapped mine in fake CF. lol.

painting the dart black would look nice on notallthere's vibe though..

So I installed the super ultimate mod for the Vibe. With this you may hear people say 'man I got my ass whipped by a Pontiac Vibe my GTO needs more horsepower.' I am telling you that the mod helped me so much that my purse landed in the back seat.

Wait for it.......

Wait.........

Almost there...............

Its a 582 lb trailer............
