  1. @Day1zero Not sure is it allowed to share but here is the installation guide Imran sent me when I bought mine. *I am happy to delete it if it's not allowed 2113755062_alias23airintakeinstallguidelinesV2(1).pdf
  2. It's to prevent oil and other contaminants buildup inside your engine/intake plenum, especially under high load conditions such as track day. It's the precaution mod with no performance gain.
  3. They are legit, I haven't bought any carbon goodies from Jason personally (know him too late) but I met Jason in person before and saw his products myself. His V weave hardtop is top notch stuff where you can option the V weave in the inner layer as well, they are incredible light too.
  4. @Mattmahope Yup they have been working well, I now relocated them under the coolant reservoir with a custom bracket, cutting out from a 2mm carbon fibre sheet so I can put back the engine cover and looks OEM. It picked up around 50ml of oils from the bank 2 (The tail lights side) since my install back in June (6 months) while the bank 1 still pretty clean and barely any oil picked up in the catch can.
  5. Guys, I just been told the production of the short shift adaptor is now completed...Yes Finally...! First off I wanna say big thank you for those who waited patiently as I know it has been substantial delay from the original plan but well...we are getting there. If things go smooth, I should able to receive them early next week and I'll have a quick check on the fitment and quality before I ship out! Some of you might aware it has the Aerie logo on it, I just wanna clarify I don't work for Aerie Performance but Jason at Aerie is very interested of my project so I've asked Jason to produce some short shift adaptors to give away the V6 fellows in exchange for the SS adaptor to sell on his website. Sorry they couldn't make it in time for the Christmas as they have some difficulties machining it in Stainless steel, as you know stainless steel is quite a lot stiffer than aluminum which makes them struggle at first. Having said that, we are getting there now and soon I will be contacting you privately for the shipping address.
  6. I don't quite understand why decat could damage the engine or supercharger. Do you mean without the restriction in place (decatted), the charger boost will alter and the stock ECU will not able to coop with that?
  7. Sorry guys It's been a bit chaos with the CNC supplier, it turns out they've made it in Aluminum instead of Stainless Steel which I requested. Good news is the fitment is great so I now have asked them to redo it in stainless steel at their own cost, I have been told the lead time could take 3 weeks from now on so hopefully I can get them at the end of November and ship out immediately before the Christmas time. This is what I received and I know its not stainless steel as soon as I put it on my hand, as it's significant lighter than the stainless steel sample that I got. The cable rob ends also arrived made by a reputed company from Japan called IKO NIPPON THOMPSON, as well as the retaining clip for the rod ends which I didn't take the picture. So it's not a SCAM and you are NOT forgotten! Now all we need to do is to wait for the CNC guy to redo them in stainless steel and we are good to go. I really appreciate your patience and I am utterly gutted when I received the aluminum piece as well Will keep you guys posted Cheers Keith
  8. Sorry to say all 10 sets of short shift adaptors have been reserved, perhaps it's better to wait for the user feedback before I decide will make another batch or not. Thanks for all the supports
  9. Thank you Sam, no worries, I am going to revise the drawing before sending it off for production, so that 3mm issue will be fixed at the time
  10. Hi guys, just a quick update. The second mock up arrived and it looks pretty good apart from the retaining hole at the back requires to move up 3 millimeters to ensure it locks securely onto the lever. Here is the video showing the shifting action from 1st to 6th gear, and then the reserve. WhatsApp Video 2021-09-06 at 2.04.25 PM.mp4 Instead of doing another sample and keeps everyone waiting, I'd like to go ahead with the production and hopefully to receive the batch at the end of September. The kit will include everything you need for the installation, including: - Short shift adaptor (stainless steel) - M6 Rod ends (For shift cable) - M8 Rod ends (For crossgate cable) - Shift cable pin - Stainless steel retaining wire As I said before, the kit will be absolutely FREE of charge but it will be great if those who are interested in this kit could pay for the shipping cost Cheers Keith
  11. @rmaurerExactly, it is not something new and I've seen the similar thing on other cars. Will put you in the list mate. I think we have 10 people now and I will give you guys update soon.
  12. Hi Mark. Thanks for your input. I think @Martrack was concerning about the material strength which we are now going to make the adaptor from a one piece solid CNC stainless steel. I understand the new shift point could stress the original arm/lever so if you look at the design, the adaptor was actually covering most part of the arm/lever so the stress could be spread across instead of at one single point.
  13. I have put your name down on the list I will update you guys when the second prototype arrive next week
  14. Absolutely, have put you guys on the list. Again I have no intention to take any money, It's for my own fun and I will make 10 sets to giveaway. Perhaps the interested parties will have to pay for the postage and that's it
