Jalal,
I may have missed it in this thread but I thought you mentioned putting up prices for the CAI and Bypass Valve ?



Hi Kev,

You didn't miss it, as I didn't put prices up emoticon

I can give you the prices, but am not sure if they'll help as this system was obtained from overseas and the exchange rate is changing everyday.

Nevertheless, here is what I paid:

1. Cosmo Racing CAI (Imported from Canada) $211.00US (including shipping) This price included an extra set of the red silicone sleeves. The price of the actual CAI itself is $94.00US

2. AEM Bypass Valve cost me $41.50US (purchased through eBay by Cosmo Racing on my behalf)

Total cost is $252.50US (or $333.00AUD)

This is far from being cheap mainly due to the cost of shipping.

I don't think that's such a bad price! Shame about the shipping costs however.

Any number of reasons really. Transmission , fuel, road, tyres.. margin-of-error (your 100kph may be my 105kph)

For the record, mine sits on about 2700rpm at 100kph. I drive a stock-standard (at the moment emoticon ) 2003 ST manual on regular unleaded fuel.

This is an EXCELLENT point indeed and would affect the RPM difference for sure. Nath, you already had an impact on your fuel readings as a result of fitting the 17" rims and I also noticed this when I upgraded from 15" to 16" with A/T tyres. It seems that by going up to 18" with the correct size tyres, am back to normal (am basing my speedo calibration on the 15" factory wheels)

Yeah I factored the rims and that in.. I was doing 105.. since 100 is really 96 something for me.

I just wasn't expecting such a big difference... we're talking 10-20%.

Hi Guys,

I have some news for you.

I will be going to Bathurst in 2-3 weeks time where Hi-Tech will try and design the Cold Air Intake system for us based on the one I now have installed emoticon

Stay tuned for more news to follow.

A quick hint: It'll be a mirror polish stainless steel system if everything goes according to plan emoticon

Do I hear someone screaming "I'll be there Jalal!!!" hahahaha

Hi Guys,

Finally managed to find something nice to cover some of those ugly black hoses in the engine bay (Thanks Noel for your help)

Noel managed to find stainless steel hose sleeving and sent me a pack $59.95 from Autobarn.

Here is the packing

Here are both the vacuum and radiator hoses covered (without the engine cover)

With the engine cover on

Hi Jalal,

This might sound like a stupid question but I'm new to all this car modding stuff so I'm going to ask it anyway

Will the CAI void the new car warranty?

Cheers

Dan
