Hello, I have recently purchased an EL XR6 98 model.
I haven't had it all that long but apparently it has had a bit done to the engine, this is what I know. High compression pistons, Bigger valves, Different cam(Not sure to what one it is), Pace maker extractors, a full 3'' exhaust and the bloke also said "headwork" but am not sure to what extent..

We picked it up from the roadworthy at a mechanics and he was telling me that it is a real mean machine and that it would really benefit from a piggyback computer and a tune.. He said it would cost around $1500 for all that but i am thinking of doing something like that soon.

Would you be able to help me out on what could be done and where in Melbourne would be a good choice?

Thank you, Luke

Be better off getting a j3 dyno tune. Much cheaper .

Tbh I dont think you would get much more power from a aftermarket ecu either .
Money could be spent else where

How does the car go?

Does it feel like it has all those mods done to it ??

That's good mate
Mine is going good. Except it's blown a head gasket . So changing that and installing stiffer springs and 1521a.

If it goes good I'd just leave it . I can't see you making much more power with a tune.
Maybe 10 -15 rwkw gain ?? Probably less .

I have a haltech e6x which I'll need to install once the 1521a is in.
It's $1000 for a tune . But ive got a base tune which I'll play around with and road tune myself .

Lol
Yea Im thinking I'll install the ecu and just get it dyno tuned . Less hassles that way . Then when its time for boost ecu is in, then it's just a matter of getting another dyno tune .

The place I was quoted from is rather pricey so ive heard . So I should be able to get a cheaper price .
