exhaust and intake. Not much else you can do without voiding your warranty.

Without a doubt the "best" way to inprove perfoamance is boost.

Capa do a supercharger kit, $5695, 346kw at the motor. or look into bolting on a xr6t turbo setup or even custom turbo.

Few camparies are fiddling around with cams and stuff aswell so if you wanna keep it n/a get some extractors, exhaust, better intake and filter, some cams, and the capa flash edit. That will probably set you back quite a bit though.

No probs. Yes the bas seam to be more expensive to mod then the older falcons but are producing much better results. Like that street registered xr6t running 9.98 on teh original turbo. Crazy.

if you want to stay NA then you could go all out at JMM. i remember reading their new BA dev3 kit is supposed to be as quick as a XR6T or something. but yeah they are quick for the price you pay. wait a little longer and they wil have designed some cams to go with the package hopefully.

above and beyond i reckon super or turbocharging is the way to go.

that street registered XR6T running 9.98 i dare say is out of our league, that has had over $100,000 spent on it. $4,500 went on an exhaust :roll:

still running standard turbo!

Mine has exhaust, extractors, cold air intake, capa edit. Good for 185rwkw/14.4 second quarter/low 6 second 0 - 100 sprint, all still with new car warranty if you reset the ecu to the standard program when you take it in. And because no-one ever believes those figures see http://members.iinet.net.au/~fnp@iinet.net.au/pics/car/MVI_0148.AVI
