Agreed spiikey1 we do need a meet of some sort, even if it's a pre-meet to a hwy event.
And you say N/A, mine is for now haha I'm saving up to possibly do a turbo conversion, I wanna do an RS Replica in Aus, and have the first MK1 RS Replica out here!!!

It sounds a little better and the first few tanks it used a bit more fuel because I was revving it out a bit.

I drove it to Albury and back with the cruise set on 115kmh and it never dropped off that speed on any hill after I dropped it back to 5th before the hill. Avg fuel was 6.3 l/100kms for the 1000km round trip.

If it's just the panel style drop on filter then you'll notice a small increase in noise maybe and minimal decrease in fuel consumption but it's better for the car to have that slightly increased air flow.
