Hey erryone, just wanted to ask a few quick questions and get some advice.

So i have a completely stock ba xr6 and want to start modding, possibly lightly but probably not

The things i want to do so far is exhaust, probably xforce, cai which i'm thinking one of the ss inductions growler intakes and lower the car (springs, new shocks).

Basically, i just want the car to pull through the gears quicker and just be a machine but i really don't know all that much about cars

I'll have a pretty decent budget seeing as i'll be losing my licence for a little while and really want to invest some mpney into this car

So basically, what other things should i look into to make it quicker, handle better and feel more responsive?
I am on my red p's also so that does limit me quite a bit haha

Buy a house, it'll be better for you in the longer term (seeings you've thrown your licence away)

You can't drift a house

Hi,

Not what you want to hear but leave it standard. No issues and parts out of a box will fit. In time it will be worth more than a modded one. It seems some of your choices are not good, so put your money into a house. When that is going well, buy a 4x, trailbike or car to run at the speedway. This is a hobby you only need to put spare cash into, and you may be able to keep your licence. You wont make any money out of it, but it will be fun.

Its my neck going the other way. An XR would be one of the safest cars around because of its ability. Same as a GT. All the wanna-be's that should get driving lessons want to make them go faster to prove what a " hero " they are. Prove it on a race track, simple. The bans and restrictions on cars now, where do you think it all started ?

Ride: BA XR6 206RWKW ;)

Location: greensborough
VIC, Australia

)go and get second hand xr6 turbo exhaust cat back for 100-150 and another 100 to get it fitted,,,,
2)then go and get your cat converter changed with a magna flow 3" metalcore one,,,they are normally 450fitted at the exhaust shops but go and get one from ebay (get magnaflow brand) around 200 and pay another 80 to get it fitted
3)then get a performance headers. if you have money go and get pacemaker 4490 or 4495 depends on what you wanna do. 4490 for a streeet use and it gives you power at the lower rpm and if you wanna gain power at the high rpm go and get 4495...4495 is for a track mostly...or there is another option and you can go and get a redback brand extractor which is cheaper than pacemaker.
4)then get your air induction changed, dnt have to spend big $$$, just go to ford and but ford fpv typhoon air box kit. you will receive different airbox with a second intake tube on it amd wotha bigger snorkel. this kit will give you decent performance and it is only $170 dolars and very easy fitting, only takes 20 minutes, also you hve to change your air filter to k&N air filter. k&N panel filter is about 70-80 dolars.
5) now you have to get a flash tuner to get your car tuned and this is on special at the moment...you can get it from KPM in NSW or you can get this from Bluepower racing development in Victoria. these two places are selling on a special price of $450-$460 at the moment. they are normally around $600-$700. you will just plug this on your car and it has soem tunes in it and you will press the button and it will upgrade your car's ecu and your car will run better and it will make you gain extra rear wheel kw.
if you do what i have told you up to this point, you will gain 27-30 rear wheel kw easy....if you want more power there are some other options as well to keep getting done...

6) now you have to get a transmission cooler, because factory one is crap and it makes the coolent get in to your transmission and in a time your transmission will be gone and you will get a bill of 2500 at least,,,,transmission cooler is around 200-250 fitted. there are threee brands you can trust; b&M, PWR, and motorcraft....and also you have to get your transmission fluid changed to transmaxZ...this make your transmission last much much longer and only this oil wnt demage your transmission....
7) now the biggest change on your car will be diff gears and lsd,,,,if you wana good take off, you have to get your diff gears changed to 4.11 and also get your diff changed to lsd one....this will cost you anywhere around 1400-2400. depends where you go and which parts you use....
8) hi stall converter,,,,this will make you rev much faster and you will pass the lower rpm quiker,,,,ba is very slow car on tha take off because of its weight, but with a hi stall you will get shock....this isnt must but diff gears are must on ba series cars,,,
9) then you can get cams, stage two crow cams. they are normally 850 but there is a guy who sells them for 650 on the fordforums.com.au, and his nick is nosxr...everyone gets from them....if you math your cams with a hi stall, your call will be amazing, you will get 0-100 around 5.2 sec,,,if you get all the works i have listed....
10) now at this point you have to get a custom flash tune. you have to take your to the decent tuner and you have to get your car custom tuned, which is around 500-750 depends on where you go and experience of the tuner....if you are in victoria, i will say bluepower racing which is the best shop in australia/////

use this to give you a guide of the prices and power mate... enjoy

I wouldn't call putting money on the car an investment (financially wise).

Expend money with the expectation of achieving a profit or material result by putting it into financial schemes, shares, or property, or...: "getting workers to invest in private pension funds"; "the company is to invest $12 million in its new manufacturing site"


However in saying that, it can be a mental investment.

Devote (one's time, effort, or energy) to a particular undertaking with the expectation of a worthwhile result.

Isn't it only one modification when you are on restrictions? If so then I'd say exhaust to let the engine breath better and a better note. Just don't do something ridiculous like putting a 3" exhaust system which does not improve any performance on a stock XR6.

the best thing you could do is sell yours any buy one that some has already put the intake,exhaust,cai,diff gears in, it will be way cheaper in the long run.

a ba xr6 is worths lets say $8k max

cai $500

diff gears with lsd $1500

full exhaust $1500

k&n filter $100

flash tune with custom tune $1500

so then you would of spent $5100 making you cars cost around $13000+ when you could buy an xr8 or xr6 turbo for $11k these days and it would be faster, more reliable and worth more if you sold it.

cars are just a money pit, youl (generally) always save money buying something someone has already modified rather than spending the money on your own car.
just a thought.
