    Default Ello Ello'

    Hello All,

    After getting my new car (sp25) written off in a car crash, i managed to get myself an GEN II BLACK LUX MPS and i love it. Have got some questions that well i just think this forum would be the best place to have it. Upgrade/mods for my new baby. I'm looking at the new BOV and CAI for my first mods? Any Ideas?

    SPANKS!

    bugger must have been a big hit but I hope all inside the car were unhurt as thats the main thing.....cars can be fixed or replaced and in ur case a step up to a MPS...congrats

    Welcome to the forum. Looks like you found a great excuse to upgrade your ride (not what you had in mind though i'm sure). Have fun and remember to hold on.

    Hay Al,

    Of course i remember you! I'm still 2 down from spotting you! Must say this forum is pretty sweet!. Just rang Auto#### for some Pricing of parts and they were quoting $459 for a Turbosmart BOV.

    dang!

    That's why the guy crashed into me I'm keeping this one clean..for now.

    It was a write-off as it did $20,000 worth of damage. That was being hit at 80 km/h no brakes and i was stopped. Prop a major reason why i bought a Mazda again, I open the car door and walked out. I said the 'f' bomb then i laughed. no much else I could do!

    Forget Auto#### and forget the turbosmart BOV unless your replacing the intake. Won't fit with the stock airbox.

    Do some research before spending your hard earned $$'s. You'll find heaps of tips, info and recommendations on this forum if you look.

    Hmm will now keep up my eyes open for you new ride , you couldnt have joined a better forum, believe me

    Yup they are pretty expensive, if you not buying new keep your eyes open in the members sell and buy section, they were a few on sell in there and all of them gone.

    Also before you buy one you might wanna read this thread Fitting of a Turbosmart BOV to a Gen II , engine bays between Gen1 and Gen2 are slighty diferent so you might experience cleareance issues until you replace your stock airbox with a CAI or SRI.

    Oh, thanks. Would of saved me the drama of finding out the hard way, ok well I need a CAI now, but before that... I'm just buying Stan Bush on Itunes. Great Album, The Original Transformers. I'm just working out how to navigate through these pages, there is actually information that I can use... It's scary for a first time.
