Hey Frank, it did a 15.1 stock as rock on premium 95ron. Apparently now they are going to see if they can run a 14 with it by using 98 oct and taking out the jack and spare wheel. Should be interesting.
Spend about 3 grand on that thing, edit, extractors, exhaust and intake and it will be ripping low 14s.


f**k thats awesome!

When i was looking for cars, i was looking for a Manual AU XR6, i looked at a few of them including an AUII VCT XR6, it was ok, but i dont know why just didnt fancy me, i saw my BA, and fell in love with it straight away, the handling was SOO much betta and was such a smoother ride, even though its auto i didnt mind, the gear changes were smooth as, and the power was quite impressive for a stock falcon, the interior was muhc more comfortable, and the outside just looked soo much better than the AU, and some of the standard options like IRS and dual airbags and abs, just made me feel so much safer, aswell as the extra cornering lights and cruise which it had, all in all, some people may think this is a byas opinion, by i definately reckonthe BA, so much easier to get power outta it too...with a decent induction/exhaust and edit...looks nice wif a good set of wheels too :D

I'm not a big fan of the electronic Throttle.
I imagine you'd get used to it, but an actual mechanical link just feels better to me.
And the E-Series XR's still have better seats...

Yeah 14.5 is probably closer to the mark for an auto. The JMM car (manual) with similiar mods (dev 3) runs 14.2.
When the warranty runs out on mine im thinking of getting the Nizpro stade 3 kit (250 kw) or a Nizpro stage 2 (220kw) with a diff swap to a 3.73lsd.
Anyway, back on topic. Once the BF is released how much do u think the BAs will drop by? Im guessing you will be able to pick em up for around 12 to 13.

Good choice I would have gone the newer car . The only advantage the AU has over the BA is fuel consumption.
