Going to see Manny Sunday the 16th, installing the Corsa extreme and the Vararam CAI and Vararam air-bridge, headers won't be in on time so we will have to do that another time.

Looking forward to hearing that new exhaust.

Hopefully the new install will not decrease your fuel mileage too much. Funny how the fun factor and fuel factor are inverses of each other.:D

Can't wait for the pics!

Fuel mileage will not be as good for sure, not worried about that though. Don't drive it enough for that to be a factor.

My mileage didn't change when i did my Vararam and full cat-back. I get the same kms to a tank that i did before the install.

The only reason mileage suffers is because it sounds so much cooler when you put your foot into it that you tend to do it a teeny bit more often! :D

Hope you like your new found tone!

Yes that is correct! I actually would think that mileage could improve with a Vararam and exhaust as they both decrease restriction. The poor mileage comes from the one thing Manny has not been able to mod and that is the driver's right foot! Not sure if that is something to mod but once Manny comes up with something, I would love to see what it is!

Yes with the intake, headers and full exhaust the car will breath much easier
and then if you add a good tune to the mixture you can really make everything
perform to its potential. If you get a tune also you can ask for the fuel trims
in 6th gear to be adjusted for the best fuel economy, they can dial them in
to almost zero. You will be more then happy with your new mods Paul.

Any fun thing in life comes with some kind of a cost :rofl:
