Intake on AUII Forte

Hi Guys, new FF member here :)

My exhaust is being done next Monday. I'm just wondering, should I bother with any intake mods? At the moment, shes 110% stock, exhaust is the first thing being done (2.5" cat back) then the usual extractors (havent researched which ones to get yet).

A JMM dev Kit is definately on order, most likely the street fighter one without an engine rebuild, or the dev3HL, but this is definately a while away. Most likely late next year.

I'm only 20, so I'm hoping to spend just enough on my baby so I don't get sick of it, and when I'm 25-26 move into something alot nicer and won't scare the insurance companies. Hopefully rating 1 by then too (touch wood) - currently rating 4.

So yeh. Is there a complete kit I should definately get? As I said, everything is stock, including Air filter, which i'm fairly certain will just be a cheapie one put on by Midas. I've seen a couple popping up on ebay etc.

I'm also kinda confused about the terms Cold Air Intake (CAI) and Air Filter, POD etc.

Thanks :)

Re: Intake on AUII Forte

From my experience and what I have also researched on the net and talking with like minded enthusiasts, after fitting an exhaust a wider mouth intake is definately the go. The more air the engine breaths in the more fuel it is fed therefore there is an increase in power. The exhaust will also help the engine expell the spent gases better and faster therefore more power.

CAI is the intake to the filter box. POD is a ram pod which can be fitted into the air box or you can get a turbo pod and box. Air filter is exactly that, it filters the air of particles prior to air entering your engine. You currently run a "cheapie" as you mentioned above.

There are plenty of threads on here about which after market filter is the way to go. Check out the threads and make your own mind up about which filter to go for.

I have fitted a Tickford snorkel to my AU3. $35 from FORD.

Welcome to the forums. Enjoy your stay. Everyone here is so helpful and friendly.
