    Default hi everyone

    hi everyone.

    my name is ryan, im a new member from perth.
    i just brought a 2005 MPS 6 leather pack three weeks ago which has just done 58,000kms.
    brought it from a private seller at $21500. i think it's a reasonable price? or i paid too much?
    haha, anyway as long as it's a good car and i love it, it's fine.

    having lots of fun driving this car. quiet, smooth, comfortable.. it's quite different from what i had before.
    love it a lot!

    And im looking forward to learning about mps's from you all!

    cheers,
    ryan

    Hey bud.

    Whereabouts in Perth are you? 21k for the 6 aint' a bad price with that amount of KM's, bargain! Post some pics when you get the chance and hopefully we'll catch you at the next WA meet.

    Any future plans for the MPS?

    Hey mate, thanks for the service schedule that you sent me previously!
    Im currently live in Langford but thinking to move to somewhere near to the city next year maybe..
    yeah i'll take some pictures of it once i get my gfrd's camera back from her friend.

    um... i'm thinking to change the standard air filter to the pod one, maybe with the cold air intake.
    any one know where in Perth i can get this CAI kit from? and roughly how much does it cost?
    after that maybe get a set of coilover suspension. i found one of the rear shock got oil leak now. the other 3 are fine..

    but all these are just dreaming now.. cos i spent all my money bought this car.. don't think i can get somemore $ to do any of these modifications.. hahah..

    The CAI isn't too much of a wallet gouger compared to the other mods you can do.

    You're probably looking at $300+ for a CAI. Hit up Jeff from Advancespeedracing as he stocks the AEM CAI for quite a decent price. Otherwise, your other options are from MPS Garage or from the US. If you go via US, take the RPM route as they're quite a reputable store.

    do you mean you have another CPE CAI for sale? if so how much are you looking for it mate?

    what a great car you have. i haven't seen any mps6 in white on the street.
    where did you get those Bonnet Bulge Decals from? they really look great on your white car

    yeah i agree Advancespeedracing do a good price for the CAI kit. thanks for letting me know mate.
    if im going to get the AEM one i'll definitely get it from Advancespeedracing .



    do you guys know what's the difference between AEM and CP-E 's? which one is better?

    are they going to fit in straight away or required any futher modifications in order to fit?
    i think it's easy to take the original air filter and the plastic pipe out, but have no idea how to fit the CAI in..

    ---------- Post added at 06:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:03 PM ----------

    i did a research, there was someone got his CAI filter wet and had problem of his car later on.
    another member in this forum suggested the cp-e Pre-Filter to prevent the filter get wet from water splash.
    anyone using this pre filter product ? does it really slove the problem?
    are there any other possible solution to prevent this to happen?
    i don't want try to gain a bit more power but end up with a dead engine...

    Gday mate, I just received my CP-E CAI and a COBB TIP from therpmstore.com. delivered for around the $450 mark.

    They're the best price I have found after doing some sleuthing on the inter webs

    Nope, sorry I have one installed and not one for sale. Cheers for comments about my MPS. I got my decals from hotcarstuff.com check them out. Looking around $50 for a pair.

    Yep, hydrolock almost occurred on my mates car as we both have the same intakes. A couple of mods we've done to prevent although not completely 100% eliminate water getting past the filter are: Scrap the standard small paper filter and go for a high flow K&N oiled filter, a couple of reasons why, its a larger surface area filter so less resistance through more area. Oiled so less Pa resistance also compared to paper which probably filters better but not ideal for optimal performance. Also, install a splash shield. Helps prevent any major water splashes from puddles. Myself and mate haven't had an issue since but have a bit of licence and don't hoon though deep puddles or any puddles for that matter.

    PS the pre-filter does squat!

    With great power comes great fuel consumption...

    that's scary .. maybe i should have a second thoughts about getting a CAI?

    actually what's the benefit for using SRI? apart from not getting wet.
    will a heatsheild make the SRI work as good as CAI?
    i know heatsheild can prevent the filter from sucking warm air, but where does the cold air come from??
    does it come from the bottom thu that little hole (see picture in below link)

    I wouldn't be too worried about one. I've never had an issue. The standard filter the CPE CAI unit comes with (paper filter) if wet just absorbs water, compared to the K&N which just splashes over (should you get water near the filter in the first place with a splash sheild and not driving through puddles fast) A CAI will generally have an air intake temperature 1 degree above ambient which is pretty good and much cooler than what an unmodified SRI arrangement can offer.

    I think the ulimate solution would be a SRI modified with well constructed heat sheilding as well as fresh air (cool air) ducting from the underside to the filter. It will work near identical to a CAI but as far as servicing the filter, it'll be much easier. Correct, the air comes from beneath (and also around) as displayed in the pic you attached. I would remove the stock box under all the stock box arrangement but also a flex duct/silicone hose or similar to direct air movement via a radius bend straight to the filter.

    Check out mine next time if you like. Myself and a couple of other guys have CAI's with K&N high flow filters, on a 14 degree night we're sucking in 15 degree temp air!

    oh, you make me really wanted to get the CAI one. 1 degree above ambient tempreture !
    have you seen anyone constructed the hole to direct cold air from underneath to the SRI filter?
    im just imagining how does it looks like..

    i think the ulimate solution is use the SRI and take out the headlight, then we get the most direct airflow, hahah..
    anyway, i think i should leave this after the exams..


    im curious why i don't hear much people using those japanese air intakes such as apexi or hks?
    i think they are quite popular in other japanese street racing cars.
    i had a apexi filter before in my skyline, but later on i changed it to the hks one.
    I hear a larger air sucking sound when accelerating compare with the apexi one.
    from that i assume the hks sucks more air because the larger surface it has? although i didn't really feel more power gained by using the hks one...

    I'm sure some folks on here have modified SRI kits that might have some photo's or info.

    I think those brands like Apexi and Hks are hugely popular in skylines, WRX's etc. There are parts for the MPS although not common from what I've seen people install on the MPS.
    The CP-E unit is a 3" pipe and if you fit that with a large surface area diameter it'll be just as good as any other intake. It's not like its a V8 twin turbo in need of massive amounts of air.

    Mine is reasonably loud btw, can hear it easy

    With great power comes great fuel consumption...

    yeah those brands are popular in other japanese cars.
    i thought there were some special reasons they are not commonly been used in mps.
