    Thanks all for the welcome and advice. Sorry not phillipino 'langer'.
    Are most sri/cai easy to install your self.....even for newbies like me?
    Also what are thoughts about changing springs to lower the gen 2 a bit? Those wheel arches are big and hide those nice rims....Cheers.

    Yeah, they're not too difficult to install yourself mate. I assume (and the guys can fix me up on this) the SRI would be a more straight forward installation. In any case you will have to remove the wheel LHS wheel guard to remove the complete stock system (there is a box underneath to be removed)

    From experience, my CAI was not too bad, just had to modify the plate (Cut and bend) so that there was no stress on my refrigerant A/C pipe run. Getting to one of the nuts proved to be a little difficult if you do not have the right tools (I used a rachet spanner).

    Both SRI and CAI come with instructions. Just be careful, the instructions may not be 100% due to the product being designed for the Mazdaspeed6 (LHD)

    With great power comes great fuel consumption...

    What onyx said ^ You can send them an email and enquire about a few items. I went through Daniel, he can often make a few suggestions and also let you know if there are any times on special or if he can do a deal on any of them. Maybe mention you're on Ozmps if that helps. Basically any questions or concerns you got, they'll help you out. If you got the $$ bulk buy to save on postage (if there are any other items you want)

    SRI install is really straight forward. Even a newbie can do this in about 20mins

    welcome mate nice choice, i recently sold my xr6 turbo and brought an mps 3 aswell and couldnt be happier the mps is not as fast as my xr6 but i have so much fun going around corners in the mps unlike the xr6t which felt like a boat....

    As others have said do the SRI i have the MZR intake that was my first upgrade and wont be my last.

    Its pretty easy mate. Just make sure u have all the tools before u start and do it slowly.

    i think the hardest part was removing this locking clip on the breather hose.

    Cheers Syd - good instructions.
    Where does everyone stand on covered/uncovered for the sri? can you cover them or just don't drive to attract any under bonnet examinations (nsw resident)???
    Wados - I agree....I now enjoy corners !!!
