Hey guys,

I am about to install a cai (holden one) and K&N panel filter on my Stock VS berlina. Just wanting some feedback on people that have put these on their cars.....notice a difference in smoothness, fuel consumption etc......

Cheers:thumbsup:

you should notice a little bit, it will rev a bit more freely, your next job is a good exhaust, then get it all dyno tuned, and you should see good gains, enough to spin in first and second!!

CAI and filter will very likely not make a difference in fuel (it didnt for my VR). Power - you would never feel it. But I do support the mod. Well the CAI anyway. Spending big $ on a filter is only wasting your time, put it towards something else.

The CAI and K&N filter are both a waste of time for fuel economy. Been there done that.

cheers

not if you get it tuned properly. Any mod where you are increaseing air flow or fuel etc needs to be adjusted by way of tuning, so wait till you have done all the mods that you want for a while and get it tuned, you will never experiance the full gains off your mods without doing this.
