looking for a Commodore
Hi. My fiancee, KMR-VZ in the forum, has a 07/07 V6 VZ wagon and we are gunna bee looking at a 2.5 inch sports exhaust system for it soon and after that it would be good to upgrade the air intake. Knowing exactly what to do with the intake set up is where I am gunna get stumped so can anyone give me some advise on what after market accesorys/air filter would be best to use in conjunction with the more free flowing exhaust to improve performance a little.

i also want to know about mace inductions..ive seen them for sale and done a bit of reading on them..and very interested to know if its just a preference to have a mcai and k&n panel filter or to have the mace pod filter in the box..and do each have there pros and cons?

to fishman you should be able to answer this, does mace pod filter have to be oiled?

cheers james.

nah mate they come with a 25 dollar SAAS pod the for my vs did anyway

i just swaped it out for a K&N pod and noticed more imporovment then b4

warning tho u have to shave the lip inside the pod on the rubber bit so u can get addapter part far enuff in the pod

otherwise it was worth putting a k&n its got even more induction noise now
