Stainless steel is lighter but I really doubt that would matter to much. People say that stainless steel has a bit of a tinny sound to it which I guess makes sense. Majority of people go mild steel as I have and once it carbons you defiantly won't regret getting it.

In my opinion he would have been better off waiting till he was off his P's and getting an F6. That thing would be insane to drive though... with a 3.7 diff that think would leave f**k lines everywhere.

Its definitely pretty impressive, if you're wondering its about 240rw kw, same as what a stock BA turbo has at the fly!
I'm just interested to see if he can back up the dyno figures with a mph figure down the quarter.

I dunno krisis... It seems like more of a dyno car than a street or drag racing car to me.

Well i am looking at getting near 200rwk, Will spend about 3-4k... When i get some more of my own tools ill be able to do some of my own stuff. Chasing a cheap engine crane.

If i can hit 200rwk ill be pretty happy considering it will be keeping up with if not better than a stock xr6 turbo.

With some very cheap bolt on mods and a tune you'll defiantly have one of the fastest P Plater legal cars. With just a catback and a pod filter I beat a boosted 180sx. Commos honestly don't stage a chance lol.

Well i picked up the car quite cheap, It's done low k's engine running a1.

Thinking of starting with PH4490's and 2 1/2" Redback Exhaust system with 2 1/2" High flow cat.
I have managed to get a quote for $1k fitted.

After this i am looking at getting a Growler Intake System, Though these seem to be about $500.
I will pay if its worth it though is there any other good options i don't want to go cheap if i am loosing power ability.
Once the induction is done ill be looking at Atomic stage 2 cams and then a tune.
Hoping for around 190rkw.

Was thinking of bigger injectors, Though should i bother being a N/A

You won't need to go bigger injectors the stock ones are fine. 1 grand fitted for a full exhaust system isn't too bad, it's about average.
As for the Growler Kit... all it is, is a boxed off pod filter... I honestly don't think you should waste that much money on an air induction. The better response and the better sound can be given off any proper induction. Mines a perfect example... simple pod filter with a stainless steel box fitted into passenger headlight. Cost me a fifth of a Growler Kit yet it does the same thing.

Okay mate, Makes sense for sure.. Might just make a custom intake.
Car is in getting a rwc at the moment getting it all switched over into my name.
Hopefully have it in at Fat Pipes near end of week getting exhaust/headers.

Hey mate havnt been on here in a while. Only just seen the thread. I have a mate this firday is getting stage 4 atomic camshafts and valve springs installed.. He already has pacemaker 4490s, 2.5" exhuast with centre muffler removed. Growler cai. We are hoping this should net him around 200-210rwkw in a manual.. Ill report back on saturday once its all tuned and ready to go.

Also with growler not trying to start arguments but i highly recomend them. The shape they use causes a RAM air affect.. helps air pass thro the filter quicker.
