More goodies today, wiring in the ATS is nothing short of a horrific nightmare.

So is this airbox mod a well documented thing to do or do people just cut a few holes in them at random to feed more air flow?

If there are any Kawasaki EX500R owners here, then the "FOG airbox mod" comes to mind where a very specific size hole is used for calculated reasons.

Ty for the pics.

I'm heavily mod'd on a stock airbox with a K&N filter and ZZP intake tube... So pretty curious.

Airbox mod as far as im concerned is more sound than anything else as I havnt seen any documented flow. Only documented flow increase ive seen is silicone intake tube over stock. which i believe had the computer calling for 7% more fuel. I did mine for sound, along with dry filter, no name silicone tube for basically the same thing as a big $ "cold air intake" at less cost.

Figured as much.

I don't do Facebook, so had to know if I was missing something. Thank you.

Last of the under hood goodies added today. Have the ZZP downpipe and 3" mandrel exhaust to go. Building a lot of boost with the Turbosmart IWG-75, maybe a little too much lol.

Ooh them's is purty. I'd hardly call stock ATS height offroad though haha. My last car you could fit a baby in the wheel gap it had stock, the ATS doesn't have much there and in fact I was going to lower mine but have decided not to. I guess everyone has different opinions on wheel gap though. Anyway, looks great man!

Makes me want to paint my calipers
You still haven't done that? haha ;)

Last of the mods are done. Alignment and exhaust hangers are left alongside a few small jobs. Car has been retuned and now has a 3" mandrel bent exhaust going to a stainless Flowmaster 1 in, 2 out.
