Talk to "FNP".

Ask him what he has done to his BA, as he is getting some insane power out of that thing with just an edit and a cat back (I think???).

I picked up my typhoon intake today from Fertree gully wreckers for $175 but havent had time to install it yet.

I found this guide pretty helpful:

Let us know how much of a difference it makes. I'm gettin one for the old boys XR6T and I'm looking forward to seeing a noticeable increase in grunt.

Sorry to piss on the parade but a cold air intake doesn't make much of a difference.. noticable if you concentrate, but nothing to write home about.

I've read that it gives between a 6-9rwk increase (the Typhoon intake, that is). What sort of intake is on your beast?
