It FEELS amazing!

I've no idea, I'm meeting with PWOH tomorrow to do a bit of a head-to-head to see if there is any change from last time.

I haven't had much driving time since this arvo, and I have to change my tune a little as I have it set quite conservatively at this moment.

No real world figures to be given. Never did any tests before the mod either.

Apart from an uprated intercooler and the removal of the DPF (which will need a real tune to take advantage of) I have nfi what else to do to the car.

I upgraded the intake a few weeks ago, again, didn't really 'feel' any change.

I blow no more smoke at all, once I change my tune to a more agressive, I'm sure it will blow a little more than usual.

I just changed the drop in filter to a pipercross The airflow IS vastly improved, but there is no change in sound under the hood or anything like that.

The DPF has not been removed. I was saying it would be pointless to remove it unless I do a proper ECU tune to take advantage of it.

I removed the muffler and resonator, put in a new drop-in filter, installed a diesel tuning box, installed a pedalbox, upgraded the brakes and wheels.

I'm not for removing the DPF as it filters the carcinogenic's from the diesel. Performance gains aren't worth killing myself
