    To a fellow Supersprint user.

    Of the systems that are often mentioned on this board I think the Supersprint is under appreciated.

    With air filters and tune I agree that the combo rocks.

    Well done.

    Definitely pulls harder particularly from low.

    Worthwhile install.

    Exhaust seems a bit sharper as well.

    You should notice the car runs a little better at idle too.

    One nice side benefit of the GT's topside air intake is a significant reduction in the amount of debris which collects in the air box and on the filters.

    100% agreed. There's newfound thrust that wasn't there before and especially noticeable at 4,000 rpm and above.

    Not sure what Ronin was talking about here?? Mine installed without any modification. The engine seems a little more responsive according to the Seat of the pants Dyno. My filters were pretty dirty, however, so not sure if new filters would have had the same result.

    Good value compared to the other aftermarket filter options!

    I know when I ordered filter kit from Carbonio it came with the tool to remove the stock MAF screws, not sure if they are some special size so I think he did not have the tool and just cut slots in screws to remove with a screwdriver? And same here about thinking part of the gain I know I felt might be attributed to clean filters going in when I replaced the over oiled filthy filters Carbonio supplied with new aFe filters. But even months after the car still feels faster, will dyno soon to see if any gain

    Oh, I see. You need to have a torx bit with a central recess since the head of torx bolt has a post sticking up in the middle of it. Fortunately I had some of those bits.
