Hey all

As the title states, I'm after a comparison between the ba/bf xr6 and the xr6 turbo

I'm in the market for a new car, these are 2 of my favourite options, I would love an xr6 turbo but I'm worried that most xr6 turbos have been flogged in their lives, an xr6 seems like the safer option, but I can't seem to stop wanting a turbo

I guess I'm after a 'pro and con' type of deal from those that own either one

Cheers guys
Dan...

+1 on the BF options and if you look hard enough, a B series Xr6 is basicly an XT with a body kit & wheels. There is no performance increase other than a speed limiter increase to 220kph from 200. none of which we here encourage you to use on public roads

GO the turbo!!! Ive spent some money on my car and exactly matching a stock turbo now. Look at all the mods ive done (below) just to get 240 KW which is 170 RWKW. Not worth it!! Go for the turbo! I would get one if my lady would let me but she says HELLLLL NOO cause we just paid this one off and all the mods (on my knees begging for a SUPERCHARGER, but still NO!!!!)

You sure the ratio is different? your not refering to the optional LSD?

I painted mine gold Paint came from Cairns to Caringbah as only one they had in stock.

I gained 27kw at the wheel plus 789 style points


get those brake caliper decals ontop of your painted calipers, good for another extra 10 ponies and 67 style points
