    Vxr Afm 80mm

    looking at upgrading to a vxr afm cause i think mine is stuffed. is this a direct replacment of the old one? eg plug and play?

    i have a haltech piggy back so tuning isnt a problem... thanks.

    ps. how much they usually go for?

    You will need revised software to run the VXR AFM.
    Not sure of the current price.

    well, its 80mm rather than the standard 70mm, so you will need bigger pipes, or adapt the existing ones, the plug is the same, but you may need to extend it a bit, and then finally the software map to be able to run it

    the AFM is 80mm mate, so you just need 80mm pipes. Unsure which model car you can get them off, unless you use 80mm samcos or something, because ive got a different non standard intake system.
