I was looking at the CAPA site the other day and saw there cold air intake for a BA XR8. It looks very similiar to the SS induction kit. Has anybody fitted this to there XR8? What would be the better one SS or CAPA?
Would you know if there much of a price difference?

An SS inductions CIA kit would have cost me at least $100 more. I don't belive the quality is any better from what I've seen (not sure if it's a re-badge, as the SS Induction kits I've seen are a little different.)
I was going to install myself but cutting the power sterring lines to move the reservoir (required for install) put me off, and so I'm getting Ford to do it.
I got the Green Filter (cotton hi flow) from EBC brakes in Victoria (03 94623210). Russell there knows his stuff and recommended a pod filter (completely different to the stock air filter) that fastens to the inside of the air box cap. He reckons about 8Kw increase with this filter alone.
By this weekend I'll have teh CIA and the new filter done.
