Hey Guys,

It's been ages since I've been here!

I finally upgraded from my 2003 BA XT Wagon to this...

June 2010 XR6 in Silhouette with 58,000 Kms on the clock.

So let's mod it! I don't want to do anything outrageous to it, I think it already looks quite sexy. Also, it still has new car warranty and I have got extended warranty to manufacturer's specifications with my finance. Here is what I am thinking at this stage:

  • Black FG SmartBar (already bought a used one for $350 instead of $1500 new as I do a lot of country driving)
  • White Phillips H4 Globes (the brightest/bluest legal/ADR globes, already installed.
  • XR8 Hood (around $650 for aftermarket)
  • Some sort of exhaust
  • Some sort of air intake mod, XR6T or FPV air intake?

What suggestions do you guys have? My car is a blank canvas for you to suggest away to (within the confines of above)!

Flash tune after Exhaust and other go fast mods are complete to ensure they are all optimised.

A V8 Air intake and Air Box. I am sure that athol-park-ford-wreckers-f82/ a site sponsor, will have something for you? :)

Hopefully they do! That way it won't void the warranty if it's a Ford part.

Does it really make a difference if there is a different panel filter in there? IE a K&N over the OEM Ford panel or would you change altogether to a pod?
