    is your clutch slipping?
    Holden wouldn't know unless they pulled it apart which would cost a few hundred $

    i went to Holden yesterday. it was an error with one of the cats. there wasn't as much back pressure anymore so one of the sensors just went off. they cleared it now though.

    the engine light hasn't come on again yet so fingers crossed she should be sweet.

    its starting to open up a bit now, sounding better and better every day

    good to hear that it was an easily fixed problem and nothing serious
    i think im leaning a bit toward the 2.25 xforce at the moment, i've heard a couple and the sound quite good

    it's definitely a good move. sounding really good now, had a few people comment on it.

    I'm still hoping that it is going to get a bit louder when it's idling though.

    have you done anything to your ute yet?

    nah not really, i picked it up at a hail storm auction so i still have to get it regoed and stuff. I'm just researching and trying to figure out the best stuff to fo to it. I liked the idea of the Air Hammer CAI, seems to be pretty good, but it doesnt seem to be for the SIDI. I picked up some Maloo springs from a guy on ebay who lowered his ute quite cheap so ill put those on, i just want the back to sit a little lower, i didnt want to lower it too much so i didnt scrape driveways etc.

    yea a CAI is my next step. i just started a new thread about which one would be good for an SV6.
    i got king springs on mine, perfect height. but mine is sitting on 20's

    strapped for cash and dont want to sell the whole car lol. I impulse bought it when I shouldn't have. It sounds awesome when you put the boot in. Feel a slight gain if you use 98RON fuel.

    did you buy the whole kit? like with the heat shield? etc.

    yea i use 98. heaps of people have been saying that the CAI's restrict the power

    yeah whole kit with heat shield and oils. each to there own i guess but i would think if ur car can suck in more air it would make more power. the cai is more free flowing than standard.

    More air doesn't mean more power at all. More air (preferably cooler air) PLUS more fuel means more power. Hence a tune is required if your engine is sucking more air. Pointless otherwise.
