      I would be tempted to cut that third NACA duct vent in and bend the tab to match the oem tray for the 3.2. The engine bay is pretty hot on these cars. If I break my second oem pan, I will buy this...

      Just be aware that wiring might be different. Like tp pointed out, the cutoff year for the headlight change was 2008. Have you checked to see if the new lights physically fit in your 2009?

      Magnaflow has a replacement. When I talked to them they said it was basically factory spec, not performance. Hott Exhaust would be a good supplier for Canadaland.
