    Default Put in the 3.2 air intake today on my 2.2 Direct Well worth it!

    Well as you would expect from a forum as great as this, I've learned all about the 3.2 intake,got the part number and fitted it today,and if any of you members have already got a good after market panel filter inserted GET THIS DONE NOW!
    Slight hesitation from pull off mainly at junctions/roundabouts? NOT ANY MORE!
    So thought to myself, this feels better already lets take her down the strip,my oh oh my! The acceleration between gears was seamless,now obviously this has been something i've noticed because i had the revs way up,and giving the car a good run,but if doing such a mod can even knock a second of the 0-60 time,this is where the time is being gained,I know my engine very well now,and I howled with joy as she lept through 4-5-6th. Normally the high revs and pulling in 3rd,when changed to 4th seem to fall a little flat on the change before power is once more restored,but that has completely changed,as the revs remained constant,and as a result the engine sounded completely different at this point,it sounded as keen as a pig squealing in a mud fight! Very very happy,that such a small mod can make such a noticeable difference.That said what an awkward Tw%t to fit! LOL.
    So a big thank you to all the members who've made previous posts about this mod,it's been my best bit of cheap happiness in a long time!!!!
