Hey guys,
Just bought myself an '04 ba xr6 non turbo.
Wondering if anyone knew of anywhere in perth for good reliable performance.
Also what should be the first thing I do(intake, exhaust, tune)?
Its a manual so would a short throw shifter help much with performance?

Any help would be great..
Cheers

Yeah generally headers, exhaust (may as well change cat while your at it), typhoon 2ndary intake, k&n filter (some say it makes a difference), underdrive pulley kit, then tune it, no point in wasting money in constantly defining after every mod.

JIM..a pink paint job would cost too much, otherwise it would already be a nice hot pink 8-)
and my main issue was I'm only going to have enough money to do one at a time..so what should be my best bet?
Been talking to a lot of mates and im split pretty much 50-50 with exhaust. If I put headers and a wider system on with a stock engine set up is that going to give a lack of back pressure and de power the engine?

I was thinking about changing the air box, had a quick look at the typhoon air box with xr6t snorkel?
Parts come in at $175. Could I also put a 2nd snorkel on it?
