    After 1778klms I might change the Ramsa pads to QFM.
    Should I get the rotors done or will I get away with it.

    Front is a lot firmer and the back set at 50% is firmer aswell.
    I`ve got a sweeping corner near work and have been going around the same speed and have less if not any body roll.

    VE V6 SIDI Growler CAI (2012) & Elite Clean Air Separator Installed 25-09-2016
    After putting the growler in the stock intake growler to T/B was hard to get on.
    [​IMG]
    So decided to get a custom pipe and fit the oil separator.
    Separator and clean side PCV outlet plugged.

    A bit of modding of the engine cover so it will fit not pretty.

    Hurricane 3" cat back on 03-04-2017
    Bit louder that the Xforce and not raspy.

    Can`t hear a drone and I have a rumble on downshift.
    It feels like it is flowing better.
    I`m happy.

    Had to get 2 post O2 sensors they couldn`t got the old ones out.
    This can happen I was just unlucky.
    Did the front 2 aswell.
    Getting about 50klms more city driving 12L/100KMLS

    And for my car the 4 O2 sensors are the same part number 12634064.

    A woman 3 doors up said one day she just hears me about 5.30am going to work and their bedroom is in the front. So no problems.
    I only go up the road about 1500rpm

    The 2 intake pipes are different sizes so one had to have a spacer to go on the metal pipe.
    The guy who made it is a great fabricator.

    Been a year already still happy with it.
    Got a spare pod coming so I can just swap straight away and clean the old one when I like.
    I`ll post a pic of it see how dirty it is.

    Didn`t take a pic of pod after 16mths it was cleaner than I expected.
    Having said that the new clean pod made it breathe better again.

    The Elite Clean Air Separator works only had a oil vapour stain on the intake pipe and abit on the TB so it works.

    The stock intake had oil in it before I installed the Separator.

    Do I need to store the pod oiled or is it right to leave it dry?
    I just cleaned the pod and let it dry put in a plastic bag (in garage which gets very warm)

    Don't see why it would need oil in storage. It's not going to rust.
