if i were u i would save up and get a flash tuner!!! my mate has a flash tuner/ engine back exhaust/elec shift kit/ combo with no other mods and he destroys XR6-T's when the tuner is set to performance mode and running 20" wheels!!! thats a no bs story!!! these lil boxes are awesome!

really? I find it hard that I could kill boost. I know the xr6T are under-tuned for what they are capable of but they aint slow. Plus, the capa generic tuners are pretty s**t anyway for a N/A.

ok, I checked out the aussie catalog for autolite:

They have:


Make & Model Part Number Gap (mm)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
BA 4.0L DOHC 3924 1.4
BA 4.0L DOHC factory LPG 3923 1.1
BA 4.0L XR6 Non Turbo 3923 1.4

Why is the part number different between the xr6 and 4L DOHC? Has is got anything to do with the cat maybe? Seems strange that LPG and xr6 have the same part number.

JMM claim a 4kw gain from putting in these plugs..............

To me its a bit sus, i mean its more likely that the gain was realised from the engine cooling off while the plugs were changed or a change in tyre temperature while on the dyno. 4 rwkw is pretty hard to confirm at power levels of around 150rwkw. IMO there is nothing wrong with the stock plugs, and at the power levels you would be running (between 140 to 150rwkw) the plug and ignition system isnt exactly being stressed out.

But for the $40 dollars that they would cost it would be worth a try, every little bit counts :lol:
