I think that's an awesome idea, just make sure you get the world's biggest transmission cooler while you're at it :)

Does anybody know of a mechanic in brisbane I can trust to install the cam, or roughly how much money I should spend on labour before I'm getting ripped off??

Are you saying you cooked the box with the auto cooler... or before you got the oil cooler?

Ride: XR6 Wagon

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

Ok guys I am gonna jump on this thread so here goes. I have just ordered the R6 from RPD and Have the auto and it is XR6. Already have Crow double valve springs and adjustable Vernier cam gear ready to go so we shall find out how it goes with the XR ECU and 3.45 diff, even though its a wagon it will be a little slower than the sedan but results should give some more clarification to those unsure of which to go for. Oh and Wagondad is running the motorplex tonite so we shall see how his R6 goes by tomorrow.
