I was looking on the website and found they had an induction kit for AU's. I have seen the BA one and its Massive, runs the whole length of the radiator support panel. But the one for the AU doesn't look much bigger than the Tickford one. If anyone has fitted it and got good results I would consider paying $350. SS inductions claim 9rwkw. I wish I could beleive that but some how I'm sceptical. I would love to be proven wrong, as I would love an extra 9rwkw!
1999 AU XR8
14.594 @ 94.40mph
152.2RWKW (APS dyno)
Switchable Shift Kit, K&N panel filter, Lukey straight thru mufflers, momo gear and steer,
DBA slotted rotors/Bendix ultimate pads (front), Pioneer MP3 head unit and BA XR carpet mats.
People will usually say that SS Inductions is all BS but I have seen some mates that have had quite some decent gains. 12rwkw was gained by putting in an air filter, SS Inductions and using Premium fuel.
All I can say is that you really have to test it out for yourself because every car is different.
I reckon you should hold off for a while. Next month, I am going to source one for my car and then do a before and after dyno. If it gives me power (say over 2rwkw) then I might think about keeping it.
