yeah 14.3 is good.,.. and 6 grand is alot too.. but its reliable its smooth and always good on fuel.. but i hear you all.. 6 grand is alot for only a 14.3 run. but its a inliine 6 if it was a v8 ide say thats sad and i would have bagged myself for it.. but for the 6 without turbo or charger.. i was happy.. and to freak alot of p platers with there vn vp n all those holden v8's with an exhaust chip and cAm they and couldnt keep up with me. they all where pretty p****d off.. even to piss off a new ba xr6t or even xr8 or ss with a el xr6 racing them and keeping up with or going past them of beating them by only a little.. still made me feel great.. haha

Yeah it's a tough call, it's pretty easy to break into the 14s but to crack into the 13s it takes ALOT more. I'm still running the stock ECU because I just cant see the bang for buck in spending another 1-2 grand for after market engine management/tuning (later model stuff like the XR6T etc where you get huge gains is well worth it though)

Like you I pulled a 14.8 for $1000 - extractors, cat back and a regrind cam.
I then had to spend another 4 grand to knock half a second off, but the old engine was shagged anyway so it was fairly easily justifyable, especially when you look at the cost of a new car and think that the stamp duty alone will buy a nice new worked engine :)

yeah i agree mate.. spend 1-2 grand on achip to gain a lucky 5rwkw that wouldnt change anything on the 1/4 mile, but might make your car run smoother.. see you got 174.7rwkw and ran a 14.4 still .1 of a second behind mine but had 11.7rwkw more.. how does that really work?? maybe i got more power to the ground i dunno.. but still 4ltr running 14 anything is pretty good

s**t, I'd pay 6 grand for someone to professionally install and tune a package that will give my I6 180rkw and a 14.0 - 14.3 ! Good price IMO.

Still, if it's BFYB that you're after, look no further than Tickford_6. He's kicking a** for very little money!

Yeah, for a BA (fatty fatty boom sticks, remember) with 180rkw N/A 14.7 sounds about rightish. Remember that an XR6T has been known to run anywhere between 14.3 and 14.8 (depending on a thousand factors as we all know). And a BA XR6T usually churns out around the 190rkw mark stock.
