i have the best part of $4500 to spend on a motor upgrade. what ideas do you have not talking bout induction, cams, exhaust, chips or anything like that im talking about the motor itself. Should i upgrade to say a el xr6, au vct, ba 6. not quite sure which dirrection to go in. give me some ideas on pros and cons.

BA XR6T would be nice, tad expensive but. Would be simple to bolt in. Enquiries to FTG (sponsor) if you're interested. Otherwise, I think the AU has the stronger bottom end and rods and pistons?

I'm with Big Kev on this one ... Stage 4 should get your around the 170-180rwkw mark ... and will be like brand new internally.

Or supercharge it and get more ... hee hee
