Jeebus, its been a while... where do i start.

Sold the 20's, weird offset and too much rim was a pain in the a**, so they're gone.
I picked up a set of BA fairlane wheels in perfect nik for pretty cheap, so they're on it now.. Gave em a lick of paint to suit the car a little better :wink:

Wing is still yet to be painted so i took it off for now, also picked up a different boot garnish. I do like the seriesII ones but im going for a very simple and clean look, so i think the earlier ones are a bit more fitting.

Chucked a big-a** pod and Arcon airbox in it last week, and getting a twin 2.5 Catback for my bday then looking into getting it tuned...

The box only cuts off the top and the sides, it is open at the front so it gets all the cold air from around the headlights and its also partially open at the bottom :D

Nah mate, far from it... the engine sucks the air, it dosnt need a feed. The gaps around the headlights are a fairly decent size so when the cars going forward theres heaps of air getting in there anyway. :wink:

But that is making the engine do the work. If you force it in, then its one less job the engine has to do.


Dude, it definatly cant be any worse than the old maze of an intake that they come out with standard. As for forcing the air in, well thats what superchargers are for :wink: haha. Looking into them later on down the track!

The arcon boxes work on the same principal as the BPR boxes for the b-series 8s, and both are producing great results after a tune...

Mate i just piut one of theese into my au xr8 and the results are awesome induction roar and sharper throttle response and you don't have to accelerate as hard from the lights i got extra 50km's extra on my weekly petrol. somi its a grouse mod in my opiniom.
