    Though I'm curious what results HaveBlue comes up with, I cant wait until Ody gets some numbers since he and I have the same motor.

    Oh, the pressure!

    Actually, I'm just as interested in doing runs with my stock 17's and my Mille Miglia 18's, which weigh 9 lbs more, each. While I'm there . . . .

    Re: The Great Air Intake Challenge

    I had it written down at one time. From memory: my '03 sport wheels (17") with 225/50R17's filled to 32psi were 42 lbs each. The 18" x 8" Mille Miglias with 245/45R18's also at 32 psi were 51 lbs each. This was on a bathroom scale that I brought out to the garage. I'm curious to see the gains of the Tonya/Volant vs. any losses due to bigger wheels on the dyno.

    I also weighed my 14" Brembo two-piece rotors and calipers. I'll weigh the stockers when I do the swap to see which is heavier.

    Devil, where are you at in NoVA? I'm in Dulles/Sterling/Leesburg area three days a week.

    OK All,
    I've got all the kits, (thanks to Krank & Ody). The dyno day is scheduled for this Thursday the 20th at 10:00am Pacific Time.
    Let the Games Begin!

    Re: The Great Air Intake Challenge

    Are you going to clean all the filters too? Wouldn't seem fair if one filter has 3000miles and another had 9000 on it. Or did they send you new stuff?

    All the filters will be cleaned and properly reoiled. The stock filter only has a few hundred miles on it.

    I personaly could care less. At least I look good. If I was after HP, I would have got something faster than a 255HP(at the crank) motor.
