Just interested after i put an exhaust system and headers onto my xr6.
Is it worth getting it tuned?

Ide be looking for better performance/power?

And where in Newcastle, NSW could i get it quoted and done?

Good idea.. get pacemaker headers 4490's hi flow cat etc , change your induction ie put a secondary intake like the typhoon.. i found it cheaper to use a pvc pipe with a 45 degree angle pointed to underneath the headlight...it cost me 10 bucks, and you cant really see it anyway (paint it black and it helps) K&N filter, then get a custom flash tune. I don't know about Newcastle,but Intune motorsport at seven hills will be worth the trip. I dont have there number but google them and give john a ring. You may find it a worthwhile trip down the F3.

Righto mate cheers,
What would i ask for in the custom tune?
And what differences in performance would i see with doing the mods you just said after a tune aswell?

and Price wise how much would it be for the custom?

Thanks Buddy

a custom tune can cost anywhere between $1000-$2000, and will give a good increase in power maybe 15kw - if it was a turbo you'd be gettin 50 - 60extra kw.

give John at in tune motorsport a ring, tell him your mods and he will advise on whats best for you.
This guy knows his sh*t...

Righto cheers mate.

Gotta get some funds together to get the mods happening so will be a few months yet..

But ill look into it definately.




And is it worth putting in a turbo? Or just buying one with the stock turbo?
cheers again

you can convert your existing motor to a turbo, but these days you can buy a full conversion kit (motor from a right off) from wreckers for around $3000. then fit yourself. This is a cheaper option if you can do the swap your self, but buyer beware on the condition of the transplant motor
