Bluepower Cai Vs Fg Xr8 Snorkel And Lower Airbox Mod
Posted 28 April 2011 - 08:01 PM
just not sure whether to bite the bullet and buy a bluepower cai.
I have the XR8 Snorkel and Lower Airbox on my FG, (also have removed the restrictor on the upper part of the airbox).
IS what I have enough, or do I invest in the BPR CAI?
Obviously one is significantly cheaper (and I already own one....) but before I put my full exhaust on etc and get it tuned, I want to be sure what CAI I decide to keep.

then as above
I did the bpr intake for noise, and your kidding yourself it if does much more than that, there isnt $650 difference or improvement over what you have now.... to be totally honest im not sold on it at all and I believe my $120 turbo side intake id far superior in every way
in my opinion, stay with what you have now, or if you want MEGA intake noise do a turbo side intake
and incase you were wondering the intake as you have now has done high 300rwkw on some peoples cars
I did turbo side for spool noise only
Hold on your n/a?
than stay with what you have!
woohooo electric boost now

dude your air box will be fine and ull see no increase in the b/p one especially due to it being n/a
the factory air box gets ritten off all to soon weve seen the factory air box set up do 128mph before

I'll keep the XR8 one I think, I would rather get it tuned sooner than pay for a CAI I don't need.
Appreciate the advice.

what's so funny Bomber?
sorry mate - wasn't aimed at you all all. Andrewd's close when he relised it was n/a - that was gold. Then s3xr6t followed up with the same and I'm off me meds . Gotta be nice to him but he makes good stuff .
I'd stay with what your got mate, most do with the turbo also. Don't know how well the factory n/a zorst works so maybe look into that. I know of some n/a's getting around with over 200rwkw which is pretty impressive without a huffer.

AND I will be getting it tuned very soon after that is fitted, @ Pit Lane Automotive.
But I agree, have turbo back Exhausts GET TUNE. I have heard that time and time again.

I wouldn't be too worried about the tune if you are changing your exhaust, unlike the turbo engines, you won't be running any risks without retuning, you just won't be getting the most out of your enitre setup.
