    Hey mate.

    Nice looking car. Just wondering about the cold air induction. Do you find it gives a good performance boost? I'm considering something similar.

    Cheers.

    How much was the CAI kit? I keep hearing differing figures, anything between $120 and $500. Might just get one of Holden
