nice pod

Nice!! The pod looks awesome. What did you do with the air/temp sensor thingy that is on the original air box? Any difference with the pod?

Thanks

I just left it.. Apparently that's the only thing that makes the set up unroadworthy, according to Vicroads.. I don't think a cop will notice though.. I hope not anyway..

The other option would be to rip the sensor off the airbox (sawing) and the chuck the sensor somewhere and just connect it..

I'll only do it if I really have to..

It's a lot better.. The system's running heaps smoother and I'm getting better mileage.. With about 15% highway and 85% city driving I get 400-420km out of a tank.. Which also includes a bit of lead footing..

Plus, the pod seems to give the car a kick in the arse at about 4-5000rpm, when I'm flooring it.. I haven't looked back, shits on the K+N Panel I used to have..

sensor thingy

Do you or does anyone else know what the sensor on that air box does? Surely it's meant to be there if the car comes with it.
