Hey I just purchased a 2005 ba xr6 mark2 magnet auto ute and was wondering what the most value for money mods where to get more performance ou of my ute and if chips are worth there money on a stock standard car?

Your best option is do your mods then chip it

Do your exhaust and intake 1st. With au onwards you don't chip them you flash tune them but that's not cheap.

lol which one the electronic one that doesn't work or the non electronic one that doesn't work :P heheh

but value for money modding, zorst n intake will give you a couple extra Kw's, you'll spend min about 1400 depending on what intake you go for

Have a look at the things I did
The extractors and exhaust were worth doing

And if I'm not mistaken - chipping is not applicable for BA onwards - they are flash tuned

Mine is going back in soon for underdrives and a more aggressive tune

Let's hope not - 157rwkw from the mods I have is meant to be pretty lame - so it won't take much tweaking methinks

And if the worst should happen, that will just hasten me getting a GT 335 on novated lease :)
