Very useful once again CSP :)....although I guess it is an improvement as you'd usually respond with a don't bother or buy a V8. As CSP has alluded to Rusty there is heaps of info on this website on SIDI mods have a bit of a search around. I've stuck a Growler CAI on mine and am happy with how it responded to the change. There is also a tune available for it as well as extractors. I haven't tinted but I understand there are some do's and don't's so hopefully someone will give you a reasonable reply on that.

Just 2c from me... When I got my windows done, they trimmed a small triangle off the rear top corner of each front window tint. Apparently, the top corner rubs on the rubber seals and chafes the tint. Cutting off the corner stops this - both my VEs were tinted a year ago and the tint is 100% still stuck on with no peeling at the top. Was done by Tint Professor and I wangled a good deal for both Ute and Sedan plus it was near the end of the year so they were keen to make a sale for their figures ;)

I've not heard of that being done. Tint Wizard did mine with metal tint and no chaffing or peeling without having the corners cut.

My corners have peeled a little bit. Will have to get around to fixing it up.

Yeah looks good. The illegal super-dark would look better but I didn't want to take the chance. Yet I notice a lot of people with the illegal stuff getting around. Maybe I should have just toughened up and got the darker stuff.
