    Hi Unhingd! Thought I'd ask you for thoughts instead of the whole forum. As you'll recall, I'm on my 2nd differential, 2016 6S.

    Now the car is making a noise I would describe as a hoot like an owl only longer, coming from the year at just certain RPM's.

    Say I'm in high gear cruising easy in traffic at 1500 RPM's. When I apply slight throttle the whoooooooo begins and ends at about 1700 revs.

    I occurs in other gears too at various RPM's but is loudest when in high gear.

    Might you have some thoughts on this noise? If you recall, I had a squirrel issue under the hood. I know you have a great sense of humor so I'll jump in now and say I have checked the year for owls and have found no sign.

    Thanks for your time and expertize good sir.

    Hi Unhinged! Any thoughts on that issue with the noises since the DIF was replaced. The thread is titled I'm Concerned (but misspelled!)

    Ever use "one time use" exhaust clamps? They are located at the back end of the downpipe.
    My SVR has what the dealer wants to replace with over $125 for 2 clamps.
    I pulled them off and the inside of the clamp has a moldable silver lining that is not damaged and looks like it should be able to be reused.

    Have you heard of anyone making a composite lower pulley?

    My SVR trunk has a large metal battery tray.
    The hold down is accomplished with a sliding bottom clamp that has 2 screws and an upper bar bracket that attaches at the fender well and then with a few bends makes its way to the battery tray near the bottom sliding clamp.

    The RS-30 battery has cut out on its sides for the standard J bars or perhaps a strap. I would think there would be many light weight battery tray/hold down mechanisms available.

    I'm still very interested in the right Lithium battery if we can get a group buy going ....
    I assume your car and my 2017 SVR use the same battery?

    We were chatting about my SVR (305, 290) ...
    You mentioned 8mm spacers should leave enough lugnut to be safe
    What is your opinion on 12mm spacers with extended thread lugnuts?

    dashawsot, you really got to get up early for a good parking spot at Katie's C&C, but I'm up for it next weekend (8/5) if the weather isn't too bad. This morning would have been a washout.

    Hey Unhingd, I saw someone reference you as a member in the DMV area with a manual f-type. Are you close to DC? I really want to check out an f type s with a manual tranny but they're so damn hard to find and I just cant justify buying one without previous knowledge. I'm also looking at 911s, but it would kill me to not have checked out a manual f type if i go that route because I really love the f type styling. If you're close to DC, I'd love to get a coffee, breakfast, or whatever you think is fair, in exchange for a ride and/or test drive. Have you ever been to cars and coffee in great falls?

    Hey Unhinged, I'm a new owner from the PNW buying a 2016 V6S Manual. I've read through everything in your post and my vin is SAJWB6BC2G8K20803. Which seems to be way early in the build dates. Do you know of anything else affecting the earlier cars?
