Hi,

I have a BF XR8 Completely standard. I'm Wondering what power gains will come with a cold air intake kit? Is it very noticeable?

Cheers

Minor. Wouldnt see you noticing it, just one of those things when grouped with a decent filter/exhaust combo will make more power.

s**t guys. he's asking a serious question and you are just being a smartass.

As mentioned you need a decent exhaust to notice a big deference. The CAI will make a slight defference by itself and also make it sound more throaty under mild to hard acceleration

Cheers for the replies, I don't mind smartass comments though, the neon comment made me chuckle. So looks like an exhaust and tune will be the go when i get the CAI.

Thanks again
