Good start with the exhaust and GT snorkel. If you havent got a high flow filter with it then i suggest you get one, makes a difference, well at least it did for me. Much smoother and more responsive. Extractors are good, either JMM or Pacemaker. I know the JMM ones are $400 and $545 for them HPC coated ( plus fitting ). I'm assuming you havent got your diff changed so by getting an xr6 3.45 diff with Lsd would be great. Certainly makes it go harder off the line and more responsive every where in the rev range.
The list goes on. Check out the inline 6 modification guide by Voxace, its really helpful.
By the way, how did you record your 0-100 time?
Cheers, and good luck with your mods, George.

if your el is auto, you can fit a shift kit www.shiftkits.com.au

it's pretty simple, buy the kit, arrives in the post, in the passenger footwell, take the left kick panel off, pull the ecu out, cut some wires as per the instructions, crimp the plastic (i used a stanly knife), solder it up to the module, tape up the soldered joins, pack it all back in and viola you change gears a tiny bit faster

oh.. and disconnect the battery too :lol:

like XRCIST said, a highflow airfilter works wonders too, though there are some pitfalls


There are two main types of filters, pod filters and flat panel filters

pod filters are generally a pod shape, foam or cloth over a wire mesh

foam is oiled, cloth isn't

You should mount this in an enclosed box, easiest option is your OE airbox which has the coldair feed going into it


This prevents your filter drawing in hot air from the engine bay which has more mass and thus more air, less fuel equals less power, so keep it enclosed and supplied with fresh air (like your EL GT snorkel does)

The pod filter I have used before in and out of an airbox was from unifilter, which manufacture foam filters and supply their own oil

IMHO - Foam filters catch a hell of a lot of dirt and dust and are very easy to clean - turpintine in a bucket then reoil, oil is very cheap

www.unifilter.com.au

OR

You can go flat panel filter, foam or cloth, in my falcon I'm using a foam flat panel filter, it flows better than the OE paper one and is very economical to clean instead of replacing a OE one when you get your car serviced or you do it yourself

again, from www.unifilter.com.au

or if you're in sydney, you can visit them, they're near the top of leighton place hornsby (address is on the website)

Cloth certainly is oiled. I don't know where you got your info from but try telling K & N that their cloth filters don't need oil :lol: :lol: :lol:
