Air Intake

Anyone do a air intake or even a different air filter? Does K & N make one?

i've got my gruppeM CAI on order and it'll arrive within the next couple of weeks.
approx USD$2,800 including 7% tax frieght and installation.

won't be using the K&N filters though cos I was told that they have layer of oil that may "melt" in my local weather and get sucked into the engine. Will post updates on the install and sound.

check out the website http://www.gruppem.co.jp/en/home.html

cheers

Excellent!! Quite pricey though. Don't forget the pics! A before and after of induction sound would be cool too.

will do.
gotta go get a good video cam between now and when it's installed. plan to do a before/after but unsure if i can get good audio when on the move and under load, so may have to just settle for the sound when stationary with the bonnet up and no-load...

cheers
