I want to say it has more go-go but I don't know, but one thing for sure is that you can actually touch the extractors after going for a good run, I didn't notice the temp guage went down

I still got the badge, im just back to cleaning, got some autogel/polish stuff to hep bring up the shine, or I have metallic paint, which we used on my brothers rocket cover on his e30 BMW turned out real nice, so I dunno, will put the badge back on soon till then it sits up on my bedside table biggrin.gif

Well if your engine bay is cooler then your intake should be cooler, perhaps you'll notice it more at night.

I removed the heat shield from the SS-III too so the heat was also absorbed by the bonnet instead of being kept in, Probably wont do it on the GT-Four so crap doesn't drop through onto the engine.

yeah I think I can notice a bit more pickup at night time, i'll properly get more improvement with my cold airbox I plan to do one day lol

yeah true you look after that GT-Four

Beautiful. You keeping that rear wing? Hopefully a red GT4 or SS-III spoiler will come up, or even a two post wing and you could get the dimensions of the riser blocks and make it with fibreglass. Two post wings have different mounting holes so it will have to be professionally filled and drilled.

i dunno I like my wing, I dont really want a SS-III wing because its not a SS-III, since its a SS-II

and yup wheels are next on the list, once I can kind some nice ones, except I cant find any I like/suit it

so start giving me ideas for wheels 16" or 17" nothing bigger than 38 offset (I think)...hmm maybe 17" by 7" ???

post up some pics so I have some ideas

Your car looks great so please don't take this the wrong way, but is your driver side (RHD from the looks of it) front splitter mounted a bit high towards the middle?
