    hey cuda what % of that increase could you attribute to the headers? ie would you attribute any power gain without a tune? theres two variables there but impressive gains nonetheless. I know with stock 304 and pacemaker competition series they are much more responsive and feel like the breathe a lot easier so i can totally understand what you mean. cheers

    Pretty sure 426cuda used the Roto-Fab system.

    Sorry all, I forgot to mention, yes I have a roto-fab installed.
    I think the bulk of the gains netted so far are in the tune. Sure bolting on the headers and CAI adds a bit of power. But, until the tune is done, replacing the torque limiting OEM components doesn't change much. Because the stock tune is based on them being installed. Conversely, a tune with no other mods will provide greater benefits, than the bolt ons and no tune IMO. Of course combining both bolt ons and tune, will give a greater increase again, as the tune can be taken further, e.g. more timing, due to greater induction and exhaust flow.
    I'm going to take a punt and say the next tune with hi-flow cats will see a little over 300rwkw.
    It's a bloody joy to drive with the extra grunt. The poor Bridgestone 050's are copping a hiding but!

    i dont think i ever got that far in my VE.
    will be hard to tell in my VF as i had to replace a rear tyre due to a puncture, so replaced both
    and on a staggered setup they will no only do stearing duties

    I sold my original 050 wheels with 30kkm and still had at least 10kkm till indicators. Now I got almost worn to indicator hsv contis and they are scary on the back of a ute. Trying to get 5kkm out of them before I upgrade to ps4s.

    If I understood correctly your alluding to no front to back rotation right?

    Love the look of your Spitfire with the power decal on the bonnet. Maybe I should of gone Spitfire over the white with red highlights......

    I added the HSV 340 headers, cats and center section to my MSE and also added the HSV airbox which has the pipe going directly to the butterfly, I also fitted some marriage savers and my car sounds pretty good without going overboard.

    Thanks SC.
    Out of interest, the headers fitted with no mods whatsoever.

    The L/H headers cleared the oil/coolant heat exchanger?

    only mod that had to occur was to grind a bit of the flange down at the header/cat to create a greater clearance between it and the oil cooler. The flange was too wide.

    Is there black roofs on all the Motorsports? I’ve never seen a SOAG VF with a black roof.

    Happy with the look? I have a SOAG Redline coming very soon. It has HF20's on it so kinda a similar look.

    The redline looks good in SOAG. The Red Brembos stand out.
