I have recently purchased a BA MKII falcon and want to mod it up. I was leaning towards adding a turbo despite my mates telling me to just buy a XR6T. The car has sentimental value to me so i am happy to spend the cash i will never see again on it. Any advice on where to start would be greaty appreciated. i want this car to run as good as it looks.

Have you thought of making it stop as well as it goes? make sure all the suspension bushes and shocks and so are up to scratch?
Maybe you could try a good exhaust first while you think about the add-on turbo?
Have a look at this thread from our sponsor venom-exhaust-works-f74/ba-bf-na-6-twin-2-25-exhaust-system-t97857.html

This sponsor has some turbo goodness for sale snort-performance-f68/snort-performance-stage-4-turbo-systems-ea-au-ba-fg-falcon-6-t92534.html

I've had mine since new and it only just came off novated lease early October.
Before it did I had the mods in my signature panel done.

Likewise - I am attached to my Bionic so i don't want to swap it yet (though the 335 GT's are VERY tempting !!!)

I'm considering the Raptor supercharger kit next

Nice gt kit mate, altho is it sagging in the front under the headlight? i see you got the dual exhaust, is the second pipe real or fake, if its real where does it split into 2, im still weighing up what i can do with mine, i know venom have developed a twin pipe setup but i havnt seen it yet.

Yeah the front has since been repaired. The left tail pipe is fake.

Would it be worth while upgrading the stock engine or should i just buy a wreck/engine from an XR6T or a V8 if its easier?

Will this be worthwhile on a stock motor?

Judging on what they say it will do - most definitely
