It's coming :D

We should have the final parts ready in about 3 weeks time. Note that the elbow pictured is a prototype item and will be in black when the revised ones come.

In saying this though, it gives you an idea as to how it fits :)

Big Thanks to Mick aka wildfireSV6's with his HUGE help along the way!

Looks to be a much larger unit than mine....as BigJim says a tight squeeze. Are the intakes at the top and is there a need to remove any rubber trim from the bonnet?

Thanks Raibo :) Still have a couple more to release over the coming weeks as well :)

Looks good Steve.

Thanks Pete, the filter is a K&N item

looking good steve, been hanging out waiting for the this.
So have I :D

Filter is a K&N panel filter.

Looks good Steve, but bloody tight fit! haha
It is, but it fits nice and snug.

It’s not a small unit that’s for sure, which is why I wanted to try and make this thing work. As for how it fits please check out the instructions below. Please bear in mind that they’re for the V8 variant, however it give you an idea as to how it all installed

On some vehicles they can rub up against the bonnet liner, when the start to sag, which case we can supply a plastic bonnet liner to suit.

Hope this helps

Cheers,
Steve

Yes, you have to cut the rubber trim, however the intake is mainly from a scoop that utilizes almost the entire badged grille

does the motor cover still go on?
The scoop that utilizes almost the entire badged grille that is great.

The engine cover will still fit, however, for the OTR to suit you need to fit the manifold insulators.
Fitting the manifold insulators (I've found) was enough to make the engine cover rub on the bonnet lining, not much, but after a few weeks you can see where it's been touching.

Are these up on the MACE website Steve? If they are I couldn't find them. I was also wondering what the flow figures are and what comparisons had been done with your OTR and the SS Inductions Growler? Does MACE now have the lead in intake airflow over it's rivals is what I'm asking (and hoping). I ask because I have a growler CAI and would replace it with your OTR if there are measurable benifits in the volume of air that can be moved over the growler.

:)

I'll be fitting one of these for sure if it flows more than the growler and 102mm MAF pipe I already have. And do these OTR's require the manifold spacer as mentioned above or is the spacer just recommended for optimal capacity/low air temps? Either way, if this flows more than a growler put me down for one...with a spacer and a re-tune, that equals a potentially potent combination.

Hey monkeyboy,

In regards to your questions/statements

“Are these up on the MACE website Steve? If they are I couldn't find them.”
Not yet, but they're done

“I was also wondering what the flow figures are and what comparisons had been done with your OTR and the SS Inductions Growler?”
Put it this way, via logging of the MAF, they seem to outflow their nearest competitor by around 10%

“Does MACE now have the lead in intake airflow over it's rivals is what I'm asking (and hoping). I ask because I have a growler CAI and would replace it with your OTR if there are measurable benifits in the volume of air that can be moved over the growler.”
There is. In saying that though if you’re happy with your current intake then I would leave it

“I'll be fitting one of these for sure if it flows more than the growler and 102mm MAF pipe I already have. And do these OTR's require the manifold spacer as mentioned above or is the spacer just recommended for optimal capacity/low air temps?”
It appears that they require the manifold insulator to insure correct geometry of the elbow relative to the throttle body and air box assembly. Haven’t personally tried it on one without an insulator so I can’t comment

“Either way, if this flows more than a growler put me down for one...with a spacer and a re-tune, that equals a potentially potent combination.”
It will. If you're after one send us a email or PM and we'll take it from there

Cheers,
Steve

any chance you can upload a sound clip or a youtube video of the engine bay revving/in-cabin sound to listen to its induction roar? i'm sure it'll be captivating :rockon:

Cheers for the reply Steve, concise and helpful as always. :)

Yes, yes yes! I want to hear this thing in action.

looks good mace! vcm otr's are awsome good quality and work well, mines gives a nice as induction note too can even hear it in the cabin over my zorst lol
Have you got a link to a clip of your OTR? I'm curious as to the difference a panel filter OTR makes compared to the pod on a growler. The growler makes a high pitched whine/induction sound which is pure horn. I'd love to have a listen to clip of your OTR if you have one.
