    Default Will I notice much more...?

    I am collecting my VXR air intake tomorrow (yippee), and have already derestricted the airbox & put an perfomance panel filter in which has improved the pick up no end, but can anyone say that this shorter aire feed will improve things? - Anyone out there done this mod that could shed some light?

    Cheers

    of course it will, its feeding colder air into the filter rather than warming it over a sandwich of aircon, radiator and maybe intercooler.

    Actually being able to feel the difference? I personally don't think you'll notice it if you have the other mods done, but in your mind you'll maybe think there's a difference. Let us know how it goes.

    Yep - it has made a diffrence - much more of a smoother 'pull' or torque curve.

    Took a fair bit of knuckle shredding as you will all know there ain't much room at the front!

    Might try a remap now - but for now this is just excellent

    Thanks to all

    just changed the pipe on my 2.2, daft question but should there be a sucking sound from the intake when you blip throtle from idle, know its that as you can feel it if your hand there.
