A small cam and some head work is about all really

A tune would be a good idea though

I've read good things about J3 chips but I would get a cam and some headers first .

I'm not sure if XH's have a BBM or not , some people will recomend doing a BBM conversion too .

XH 1 still had the EBII engine, didn't it? XH 1's had EF style XR front ends.

XH 2 got the EF/EL suspension EL (or EF) engine and the XR ones had the EL style bar.
