Can I ask the big Question? For delivery (as in available) WHEN?
yes I know it's not something you have any control over but I'm almost 6 months into V ownership this is the one thing I've wanted to do from day 1 (or some type of exhaust mod), provided the 'sound' is right (heck price too)
Hmm, that may work. I just need to build a business case with that spin.
Let's see, conservatively let's say 0.5 MPG improvement. Over the first 2,000 miles of the V, I've averaged 19.45 MPG lifetime so let's assume the post-Corsa MPG is 20.0. The $1000 (hopefully way too high for a group buy) Corsa would take 354,000 miles to pay for itself at $2/gallon.
Assuming a more reasonable 50,000 miles to see the return on investment would require an increase of 4.7 MPG. Not likely.
Pushing it to 100,000 miles, the increase in mileage would need to be 2.1 MPG to return the $1000 investment.
With a louder exhaust, I know I"ll be pressing the go pedal harder and more often so there goes the improved mileage theory, lol.
I am in.
Was wondering though about the MorePerformance/K+N filter.
Seems like a nice complement for the exhuast, however on a more recent thread it seems that someone has hurt his MAF due to the oil.
Anyone else experience this?
I have had mine on since they first came out with no trouble. I asked the service tech about it and he said as long as I didn't over oil the filter after cleaning it would be ok. I think the CAK was well worth it.
I have the More CAI. I think it's well worth the money. But the talk of over-oiling seems a bit premature on the K&N filter: The info from K&N is that it doesn't need to be cleaned for 50,000 miles! Obviously, hard use would shorten that, but you're still talking a lot of miles.
Just got an email from Jim Jr at Corsa. Tuning is finally done and they are about to start production. Still tight-lipped on release date and price. System will have an "H Pipe" not a "X Pipe"...something to do with space availabel and sound tuning. Will have two single 4" tips so there is no modification of rear valence. He says it sounds awesome and we will not be disappointed! If this GP becomes reality...I am in.
