hey mat, nice fairmont, its got pretty low kms for the price aswell. just wondering about the grill... you said you got a different one but the one in the pic above looks like the standard EF Mont one (not that im complaining... i like it more that the EL Mont of lane ones), When you going to come out on some cruises with us... :D (See Below)

Cheers Cam

Mate love the car, looks unreal!

Firstly I wouldn't do the K&N if i were you, I tried it and didn't notice much at all. Put it towards your extractors or a CAI.

Secondly, could you post the link of the place where you got the clear side indicators from? Been chasing them for a long time.

Cheers.

Im glad more people are starting to realise this. A high flow filter such as the K&N would have to be one of the biggest wastes of money possible IMO. I originally had a 3" pod in my airbox and would have to say the only difference i noticed was a hollow sucking sound lol, put the old standard paper filter back in and couldnt tell a difference between them.. Pacemaker extractors would be a good mod though so definitely get that done. Maybe save the money you planned on spending on a K&N filter and put that towards a regrind cam from Wade or something..

Nice Mont by the way, its very clean/smooth and it looks pretty classy in white :wink:
