GruppeM CAI and Exhaust Installed (pics only)

As promised, here are the pics of the CAI and Exhaust.
The sounds clips will be posted when I return from my overseas trip...

The sounds from these two mods are incredible. The CAI enhances the high-pitched intake noise, while the exhaust is both loud and throaty. A bit of droning at revs between 3k and 4k RPM though.

I left my driver's side window (right side for me) to enjoy the sounds, and my right ear actually started tingling after a while. Real cool...

All in all, if you want to remain stealthy, the exhaust is NOT for you. It scares little children and intimidates other drivers...

No regrets!

Cheers

Thanks for the pics!

I am now a bit concerned this exhaust might be too loud for my tastes. Looking forward to you videos.

my butt dyno says, YES. i can "feel" more power, more responsive.
500km to allow the mods to bed down before i dyno it again.

will definitely post the results, together with the sound clips...

cheers
