hey i have a 07 xlr will a air intake make a defference in performance ?Welcome. I had an 06 Starblack, now have an 08 V. HUGE difference! Having said that, a Corsa exhaust and a cold air intake will absolutely make an improvement. When I did the mods. on my 06, the change in sound alone made it worth the money. You'll LOVE it!
Good question, I have never looked behind the grille of an XLR. It's possible they never used the rubber as no water could penetrate the grille. That, by the way, was the reason the sheets were used in the first place. A smart engineer realized those oval holes would be a great source of cool air, but another engineer realized water could possibly enter the air scoops and had the sheets installed.So if you switched to an "open" grill, would the rubber sheets be there? Or just the oval holes?
I think it would too. If you don't already have a cold air intake, try simple K&N filters. I swear by them. Easy replacement. Also, you guys are right about the water. My V has a D3 intake and the sheets removed, when it rains hard or I wash my car I get a check engine code attributed to the MAF sensor.I have an after market V grill on my XLR, and there are no flaps over the holes. I can see some water marks on the filter covers, but since the air intake openings are facing inward in the middle of the car, it would take a lot of water coming through the holes to cause any to enter the intake. But under normal conditions I would think that this situation would enhance intake air flow.
I did that and it caused all sorts of errors to display. Only way to correct was to replace with the original. I’m not sure the aftermarket system improved performance in any way. It did cause a lot of *$%#&.air intake
