Herrod Mods on the GT

Hi there, I'm currently trying to decide whether or not to get the Herrod cold air / filter / helix spacer. I have a limited budget that would allow me to spend around the necessary $1000 for all this but no more. Am I better off saving the cash or will I see a marked improvement in performace if I do the mods (keep the cash vs performance increase). Also do these mods affect the warranty of the GT?

Hoping someone out there can point me in the right direction.


HSV, I don't want one

Re: Herrod Mods on the GT

They should not affect your warranty, but it depends on the individual dealer.

you can get cheaper prices though on the same gear

pm me


Mick

There is no substitute for cubic inches but my pursuit sure closes the gap




*UPDATE * Pursuit has just run 11.763 and 116.18 mph making it Australias Quickest and fastest unopened boss as well as Australias Quickest and fastest naturally aspirated Boss

That gear from Herrods will cost you $1070 I could do you a SS induction cold air, BMC hi flow filter and Herrod spacer for $950 fitted at my workshop in frankston.

pm me if interested

Probably not a good idea trying to undercut another business on this forum.

Your probably right, can you edit your post to delete the prices I quoted him.

People should look around because there is cheaper prices to be had on the same gear.
