Default FWI chime in

Just wondering how many people in each Gen has FWI ( AFtermarket )

92-99 = Me


So far I"ve notice compared to a gutted airbox..

I hear the cam ( gurggling sound ) a lot more during cold start
during idle ( after long warm up ) Seems to need a tad more boost ( according to boost gauge ) to keep car idling and to climb certain hills..

WOT run is louder

Performance wise haven't had much time ( want to ensure PCM gets use to it first ). I was going to test it on the way to work today.. but driving into strong wind.. so it wouldn't be fair due to wind drag.
