I've got an 09 XR6 n/a, keen to do some work on it. Been speaking to a few people and some of them have been telling me i'm p***ing into the wind by starting with an n/a as base and to upgrade to the turbo first.

I got the n/a instead due to insurance restrictions, and have now become attached to it has a 6spd manual gearbox and is a joy to drive.

There is still plenty of fun to be had with the n/a right?
Many thanks for feedback

yea they would be a fun car to drive but i rekon for eze and probly cheaper swap your car in for a turbo.

and its a bit of a null point about the turbo being higher insurence if you turbo your n/a one.
unless you dont tell them. in that case dont bother about insurence at all. even cheaper. :lol: :lol:
