Hi All,
Im new to this site, but from what Ive read you all seem to know what your talking about :D
Ive got a FG XR6 N/a and want to start modding it to get the power levels up. Any ideas on what I can do besides forced induction?

probably best to start witt extractors, high flow cat , straight through mufflers and 2.5" exhaust, maybe a 3" exhaust. then get it flash tuned

not to sure as i mainly work with the old SOHC motors, but just a flash tune would increase your power and with a full exhaust it would definately make a fair bit more power.

Not sure if it's the same on the FG, but if you can upgrade the intake by getting a bigger snorkel or a better flowing filter such as BMC or K&N air filters (oil based), you might get better throttle response.

Also what jerrytorry...exhaust and flash will definitely get you going quicker.

You could get the Air Cleaner setup from one of our Sponsors, FTG Auto salvage? $195.00 is how much they charge for the kit.

Thanks guys, Im gona put some extractors, high flow cap, maybe a ss inductions cold air induction in.
But whats the deal with cams. I know theres alot of forums on the topic but is it even worth getting new cams for such a new car. Or are they more of a mod for older models?
