    Approx $1500 for a VCM OTR intake and mafless tune.

    This should also give about 260ish rwkw too..... Not sure how much for a tune to just remove the fault from the O2 sensors. Maybe even just replacing them may work?? Ah well, I want the extra power anyway so its OTR and mafless time.

    For the guys installing extractors at home, be careful of the power wires on the left hand side near the extractors. Looks like one goes to the starter motor, and the other elsewhere. I split the two wires and cable tied them to some air con hoses to keep them out the way.

    On another note, just booked in at WA Performance for VCM OTR and mafless tune.

    Abit excited to have more powerrrrrr.

    Mikey -- are you getting the infill panels with the VCM OTR?
    I'd be interested to see a pic if you are.

    I do not think that they are coming as part of my OTR/tune package, although I could be completely wrong and they are??

    Either way, I'm buying them if they don't come with it...

    Active Automotive have a heap of pics on their facebook page with the infill panels installed.

    Results after having a dyno tune done today.

    306hp is with the full exhaust, no aftermarket tune, just bog stocker with exhaust.

    364hp is with full exhaust, VCM OTR, mafless tune (by WA Performance)

    Mitch at WA Performance said that he generally sees 270-280hp from a bog stock VE SS manual before any upgrades.

    Roll on 1st gear lights up... Clutch pop 2nd at 40-50kph and lay strips.... It's pretty fun ;)

    Bad points? Well when driving normally its no different really, just more useable torque... Jump on the go pedal and expect it to throw you back, need to be abit smoother getting in and out of the pedal to be smooth, that's all.

    mikey cheers for sending the steps to fitting the new exhaust it helped a lot. i did end up doing it on my own though, so it ended up talking a little bit longer the 3 hours haha. my car sounds awesome now though. well after i replaced the spark plugs I managed to damage getting the right hand extractor out. I also found being HSV i think my stock extractors were a little different because they were not coming out without the steering shaft being disconnected.
    how did you go getting the maffless tune and otr done? what is WA performance like? I have been looking around to see where is best to take it to get the tune.

    Yep, HSV have a short tri-y cast extractor type thingo I think... Bit different to my stocker VE SS.

    OTR and tune was easy, dropped car off at 8am, picked up at 3pm, payed my money and drove off.

    Take your pick between WA Perormance and Active Automotive I think personally. WA Performance was closer to me so I chose them. Mitch (WA Performance) was great to chat with and made me feel like I could trust my car with him.

    Actives didn't give me the same happy feeling... but no-one can deny their results and performance they get from cars....

    Few people have asked me to upload again how the car sounds now it's been on the car awhile and has the OTR and mafless tune.

    As you can see, a lot less traction in 1st haha, if you short shift to 2nd with abit of clutch it'll do the same, but wasn't really the point I was going for here.
