Hi everyone. Was just wondering what kind of power i might be getting from my XG if i get extractors, high flow cat, 2 1/2 inch exhaust, K&N air filter, and j3 chip in. Thanks. (sorry if someone has already asked a similar question)

I've seen people say about 100rwkw stock, depending on age, engine and box condition, and whether it's an auto or manual.

thanks benno, mines manual and the engine (according to a compression test) is in brilliant condition... would 120 rwkw be enough to beat a VY commodore?

yours being manual and with full exhaust and a ti chip tuned, would beat a VY V6

Okay thanks. Might have to invest in some goodies then... mate has a VY and i'm getting sick of him pulling away (surprisingly my mighty XG doesn't lose by to much) might get short shift kit so i can keep up with his automatic gear changes, then we'll see who wins :D

i would probably do intake. although when i started i always did exhaust first.
remind me again does your ute have the old intake set up or the bbm set up like the ef el?
