I would leave the WAI to last - I fitted a pipe from the inlet of the air filter to the exhaust on my trip to Inverness last week and measured an average of 55.5 on the trip there, I removed it and got 55.6 for the way back. Neither were correct as I got a higher average for the tank which was 90% this trip but there was no difference I could detect.

I think I may try a CAI instead for more oomph when I do accelerate (I have videos up in the George thread) - when time allows.

Its the most modern car I own..was not too bad tbh, approx a months repayment on a newer car. (and not a 911 GT3RS!)

As for the WAI- I've been thinking about that- looking at my car it has the earlier AFM type air intake monitoring- its a flap, rather than an MAF setup..

I'm not sure it'll be able to detect a change in density?!
