The only intake i would use is a Bluepower one, nothing beats the power and the sound :)

I have heard his car and been in it...and it sounds really nice. I think it's a tad loud...the good loud. Loud enough that the vibrations during start up set my sisters car alarm off :lol:. It gives a very nice note.

He is located in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne.

The bluepower box has again and again been proven the best on the market. (also most expensive, but you get that).

I'm getting one (hopefully Monday) to replace the APS intake setup (like the typhoon lower snorkel, but huge) I'm running now.

xrsteve, stop talking crap and go back to playing with your toy cars. SS Inductions doesn't even come close to what Bluepower have on offer and will not and can not make the same kind of power gains and noise of the Bluepower

Now back to topic, the exhaust sounds good, can be a lil too loud at times. As Phong said i'm in the northern subs, if you want a listen and see the stuff i'm more then happy to help out. Also give Chris a call from Bluepower and he can help you out and give advice on anything you want done.

data_mine, i had a setup kinda like that (homebrand one) and thought it was good when i did it, got a Bluepower one and had a smile for weeks, you'll love it.

And just a lil price comparison because people think Bluepower is a lil expensive...

Bluepower - $600 - 15-20rwkw
SS Growler $599 - ??rwkw (maybe 10 is that at a guess)
SS Big Mouth - $470 - 4-5rwkw

I know where my money would be spent!

Pod in a box here. The real power difference is in the air filter design. Pick a pod filter with a nice radius inside and it will go even better! I used a K&N off a Dodge truck and fabricated a box out of alloy. Deep breathing and great throttle response. I had to find an exhaust that could be heard over the induction roar. Sorry for the largish photo:
