I've had my FG XR6 for about 6 months, and been nothing but pleased with it. Everything has exceeded my expectations. Before you ask/suggest, due to insurance requirements I couldn't get the turbo.

Just wondering about any suggestions that people would have regarding mod potential. Still deciding between a turbo and supercharger, so opinions on that would be welcome as well.

I am just starting to develop my love of cars so please be gentle and any advice given will be much appreciated :D

I am guessing you won't care too much about any warranty so, Exhaust, bigger(wider) wheels and the best thing I could suggest, BIGGER BRAKES.

BRAKES!!!???!!! I took mine off so I could do phat skidz everywhere hahaha

All jokes aside, like smurfy said, brakes and wider tyres are a must. More grip and being able to pull up all the extra ponies you'll be hauling. Mods wise, start off with full exhaust system, then cold air induction.

whats the point of supercharging or putting a turbo on to your N/A if you couldnt buy a turbo because of insurance? The simple fact is if you do those to mods to your N/A and dont tell your insurance they wont cover you at all if you get in an accident doesnt matter if its you fault or not! Any how, do CAI, extractors, full exhaust, under drives, 82 degree thermostat, and crow cams with custom tune. Then you would have a N/A thats faster than a stock turbo.
