ANY weight forward of the front axle will affect handling, surely an fellow ex-mechanic would understand this. I do not know if you have lifted a 1m piece of "6 steel exhaust, but it does weight about 10+kg, as it is generally used on a truck and it is also sitting high of the center of gravity, so it would affect the way the car handles. I never said anything about performance, as I would expect there would be very little difference between CAIs.
You stated that the bwoody CAI "is just mandrel bent pipe with a filter on the end" and that any "pretty sure most exhaust shop could make one" I just pointed out the difference between fact and your statement.
I do not need to grasp at straws for anything, as I have just given my opinion. What you do is your business, I look forward to seeing your mods in the future and hope that you share them for all to learn.
Not gettin agressive bud but when you hi jack my thread with diy's,roughers and homemades then i will take offence. For a start 6" pipe is rediculously oversized considering the throttle body is only 80mm. Last time i checked 6" was 150mm. As for the pipe weighing about 10kg i mean come on be serious here , 10kg gunna affect handling wow i hope you drain that big ass washer bottle before you take it round the track that things guaranteed for 4kg when full.haha. i think you missed my point with this thread dude , i mean the guy who started this site said it sounded great.
