Picked up the MSD leads yesterday from Dave (BOTTLEDUP), thanks Dave, so they'll be going on today. Attempted to do them last night when we got home but hot exhaust manifolds stopped me doing so. The std header design is shocking, the more i look at them the more i contemplate just spending the cash and getting some pacies put straight on, thered have to be some good gains to be had there. I believe the only difference between the 175kw and the 185kw is the headers.
I'll also chuck on the Tickford intake snorkle, thanks Timmeh, then i'll grab a K&N panel filter during the week. Wonder if they'll make a difference to the fuel economy.
Throttle body will wait untill we can get the upper explorer polished. Im not looking for any gains to be had from going from the 65mm to the 70mm T/B, mainly doing it for aesthetic reasons as i believe the 65mm would actually be the better T/B for the rest of the combo.
Oh and exhaust looks to be a single press bent 2.5" with one muffler and a big gay oval tip. This will have to stay for a while but i'll be looking at changing the tip to a dumpie style and try hide it under the rear bar abit instead if the big blatant, protruding oval one thats on there now. Exhuast note is quite subtle and doesnt drone while cruising etc.

Heres a quick engine bay pic taken this morning after fitting the Tickford snorkle and MSD leads. Went for the subtle black leads, not looking at going too colourful under the bonnet, expect some shiny bits though :wink:
Also we are on par for 500km out of the first tank of general around town driving, im pretty impressed with that fuel economy.
