Yes i have a BPR CAI.

When i got the car it already had an SS inductions unit, so going from that to BPR i didn't really notice any power difference, but the induction roar, jesus i almost had to reach for the tissues.

So i'm not sure if you will notice a difference in power since i'm guessing you are going from a stock intake. But the sound was worth it for me.


ah yes, by what your saying this induction noise is gonna be sick haha.
so i guess CAI is the go first,
then my djr garnish, (has anyone had or have one of these?)
then a tune :)

I'm not sure if this is relevant to yourself, but one thing to be wary of purchasing a 6speed to a 5speed is the insurance premium. The 6 speed puts the car into a much higher bracket. Turned my oldman off buying one. From memory it was 3 or 4 times more.


really? i didnt know that haha, cause mines a 4 speed and mines just over 2 grand and im only 18.

how come the six speed would put it up so much?

i see, they think because of the closer gear ratios that its gonna be faster or some s**t?

yeah 1000cc bikes would cost a pretty penny to insure, our bike is only a 900ss or something like that.
