    What kind of gains are you getting with software, intake, and exhause on the 3.2?

    Thanks guys. I assume the 'driveability' is greatly increased as well.

    Do it, do it, do it!! That's a little tongue in cheek, but I had AmD do the remap (@11000 km). On its own, that was netted me a more responsive, faster revving engine. Not a huge increase, but a definite change in character.

    I later added a milltek cat-back (20000km), and that gave a very nice sound (not too loud, and quite "classy").

    Then I added BMC's Carbon Dynamic Airbox (22000 km), which in some instances (low-rev WOT) is louder than the exhaust.

    Both the intake and exhaust helped freeing up the engine. And the sound is outstanding.

    I'm now at 35000km, and I am glad I did those things early on as I enjoy them every single day ;-)
