Do you want performance, or visual?

Performance you can start with a nice Cold Air Intake. Then pacemaker extractors with a 2.5" exhaust to follow. Under drive pulley kit, a tune and you will have a decently quick FG XR6 for low cost.

Visual, GT body kit, deep dish 18" rims, interior LED's. The possibilities are endless :D

haha evilbay thats a good one xD haha but it is true, u will find pretty much anything on ebay...

Personally i think 20" rims suit the falcons cause they fill the wheel arch, but a lot do say they feel every bump in the road after that much of a change... i thought it was fine but :)

FG's use H4 and H7 globes.
If you really want to make the car STAND out, don't go silly and add heaps of pointless bling.
Look at getting bigger brakes? better sway bar? As to wheels, I don't think you would like the 20" ones for too long, one of the guys on here got rid of his 19" because he kept getting cracks in them and opted for the 18" wheels from the FG Turbo.

Remember also, if your vehicle is still in warranty you will be voiding a lot of that if you MODIFY too heavily.

search 13.6 fg xr6 na. 1st thing i would do is to take the restrictor out of the top of the air box that frees up about 5kw on its own. then get a xr8 bottom air box and snorkle for about 200 bucks posted from furn tree gully (site sponsor).
