Hey guys.

New to the forum here, and also not very good with cars etc.

Would like to make do some mods to my falcon, and was wondering where to start and how much $$ I would be looking at to get to the 180kw mark.

Cheers for any help in advance!

lol +1 i was so going to say that as well mate,

any back to the OP, full exhaust, cold air in take, you can also get an under drive kit, they are good for 10rwkw and a custom tune should get you pretty close to 180rwkw. I have the BF and have done this just need the custom tune so keep an eye on my build thread i will pst up my dyno figures once i have done the tune. There are also some sticky threads in this 6 cylinder part of the forum which has some good mod ideas as well

Cheers

Phil

no worries mate, I guess if you want more let us know your budget and go from there. Anyways have fun and try and document all mods then you can create a really good build thread for all to read
