  1. Hi there. I'm not absolutely positive but I believe the only way to do that is with a STAR computer. I'm pretty sure it can't be done without some sort of electronic wizardry...
  2. Really @tolsen??? I'm not doubting you... I'm just wondering why I hear of so many peeps doing it and saying there's more power in doing it. I've read on another board that the big resonator was a drain on air flow and actually restricted performance. I'm no pro here... just researching and relating what I already read. I currently have the stock air box and tube with the resonator with just a drop-in K&N and I'm happy with that. I thought getting rid of the stock tube and resonator would improve performance but if not and it can actually damage the engine, then I'm definitely out. The noise thing is a big thing too since I do a lot of highway with it. If it's going to make the interior sound unbearable, then I definitely won't do it.
  3. Hi there, if I remove the stock air intake tube + resonator box to replace it with some aftermarket intake tube (many on ebay, amazon and smart madness to choose from...), how will that affect the noise level inside the cabin? I imagine the noise outside changes but what about inside? Need to know if the extra 2.5hp it'll give me ( :-) ) are worth potential added road noise... Thank you!
  4. Hit 5.3l/100km today with my 2015 ice pure on a highway day dealing with life! For me... that’s excellent!
  5. Hey @smartzuum When you removed the resonator box, did it change the noise level inside the car? I imagine the noise changes outside but does the inside suffer?
  6. ShMart got some new back protection today
  7. Just wondering what peeps do about oil changes... Do you wait until the little wrench shows up or every 6 months or every 15k KM regardless? I'm coming up on 6 months with only 2.5k km since the last one... I know, I know... better more than less but how much more is more of a waste of money? (2015 ICE Pure with 19k km on the clock) Thank you!
  8. Replaced it with this... super happy.
  9. I just used a drop-in K&N air filter and I did feel a difference... not huge of course but ShMart is quicker off the line. Sounds a tad growlier too... Next up will be replacing the air intake tube to the engine and removing the resonator. That seems to be the cheapest upgrade for 3hp... Oh!!! And don't forget the K&N sticker on the back window!!! That's a bonus 3hp as well!!! :-D
  10. Thanks Wild!, That's the plan. I'm just wondering which one to use. I've read that using a CANBUS led is a bad idea because of the heat coming from the resistance. Also, I'm hoping someone can guide me on what size should be used. CTC is about 10 mins from my place.
  11. Posted this in the chat but figured I'd get more traction here... Hi there... need suggestions to replace the anemic dome light in my 2015 pure. Please and thank you! :-)
  12. Hey Smart team! Was on before finding this place. I'm the proud owner of a pretty stock 2015 pure... Only minor mods done so far... New KFC-1695ps speakers and ODX H7 MULTI 6000 LUMENS LED low beams.
