With the K&N, Crab or Injen (sans its quarter extention as with it there is no way to have it- ha haa) you wont need your quarter resonator as water has a place to go
should it get through your quarter hole. Its not a sealed system at that quarter opening. Make sense?
I sort of understand. so basically even when I drive down the highway in say a rain storm, the resonator doesn't do anything to keep the water out of the air box? I was just thinking if I kept the resonator in there and remove the airbox and just left the pipe in there, would the air still flow thru to were the air box used to be? were is the quarter opening, by-the-way? is that the opening that goes into the air box or is that the opening in-front like were the resonator is?
It's def the 3.6L. they said the joint on my transmission fit perfectly, but what might be good to point out is the transmission. Progressive didn't want to take a chance with the transmission being affected by the blow piston, so they covered for a new transmission too. I know nothing about cars. but maybe the new transmission they ordered to work with the 3.6L. Basically the car has 40,150 miles on it, but that is just body mileage now. its basically like a brand-new car.
It was put together at the Pontiac GM dealership, so I trust they knew what they were doing, its been there well over 2 weeks in the shop. The invoice I got from the dealership clearly state "3.6L V6, VVT". I can really feel the power difference let me tell you. My dealership treats me well there, my dad did buy a 2010 Cadillac CTS from them, so maybe that's why.
and Sure when I get home I can take a picture. They didn't order the engine cover thing, it has my original 3.5L cover. Progressive only covered for the engine not the plastic engine cover thing, the 3.5L cover fits, so it's not a big deal. I'm just more grateful its a new engine. I've only had the car since February. it's a certified used. When I bought the car, I got Progressive's best car insurance plan, boy did it pay off. My friends told me its unheard of for the Insurance company to pay so much. My father is a Progressive Regional Manager though.
