hi I am looking for more power gain in my xr6 xh I am currently running tickford 4l with, pacemaker comp extractors, 2 1/2 inch exhaust straight through and custom air intake (not big mouth/ ss induction). What are some ideas? e.g larger throttle bodies? cat back exhaust or even a dual exhaust system? Any ideas or thoughts muchly appreciated. Cheers, Ben.

There is a heap you can do...

- Port and polish of head
- Cam
- 3" Exhaust
Etc etc

Have a browse with the search tool, heaps and heaps which will help you out...

What series is your xh?? If its series 1 I'd look at a intake swap, auto or manual?? Cam would be next on the list for you

Manual conversion would be an idea, but cam and headwork is probably your next step

I got manual and I've been looking at cams, what exactly is a port polish? I'm trying to become mechanicly minded. I've been looking ss big mouth CAI but I've found other CAI that aren't as expensive (40$-70$) is that a good price? for one that is 140mm high and normal width. I've also been looking a stage 3 crow cam that comes with a custom tune J3 chip for 695$. Is that a reasonable price? And I've seen a new throttle body bored out to 67mm, is that any better than factory one? And my xh is 98 so I'm guessing series II.
