    And It's no big deal to drive that fast with one hand. The steering is really stiff, and the road complete straight without bumps.

    No worries please. It's not the first time I went that fast.
    Im one of these people who believes anything can happen, but you can actively limit the potential for problems. Im not tire expert, and I would think the tires are actually safer to higher speeds then posted, as manufacturers generally err on the safe side. I just wouldnt do it myself, tho... If Im gonna drive over the speed limit of the tires alot, Id just buy higher rated tires.

    Those are my winter tires. I wanted to test the top speed with my smaller oem rims once. Normally I don't drive over 240 km/h with them.
    My summer tires are labelled with 300+, but on my 20's and 245 tires the car is like 10-15 km/h slower.

    lol I like stickers... The air box is still stock but I am pretty sure the intake hose has been replaced with an aftermarket flex tubing, threw in a K&N stock type filter and man what a difference.

    Question then, Where does the hose that originally went from the air box on the front of the intake to the valve cover on the drivers side that provides fresh filtered air into the crank case go now? I mean where is it connected in your intake piping

    there is a smaller hard-ish plastic host that goes into the side of the airbox, im guessing they drilled a hole to fit it

    I think I'd be watching that that you don't get oil in there. Thats where a lot of the oil usage problems end up. I'm just guessing you might end up with filter clogging and coating your MAF with oil if you do.

    Thanks for the heads up I will have to keep an eye out, when I took the old paper filter out it was dusty dirty but no oily residue

    Does it go into the airbox before or after the filter ?
    If after, heed Dave's advice & keep an eye on oil level & your MAF. Hell, keep an eye even if it goes in before the filter.

    Maybe its a better place for the PCV hose. The original placement hasn't earned any merit badges.

    It does go in after the filter (on intake tube side upper left corner of box next to engine cover), airbox is clean no build up and oil level is good but definitely something to watch for.
