The question on my lips is:

Which one is faster and by how much?


I never took the 4.0L to the strip, and i havent taken the xr8 there yet so i dont know what times they would run, and i never lined em up next to each other before i sold it but i'd say the 4.0L would of handed the xr8 its a** with the xr8 stock and the 4.0L with the work done to it.

G'day Guys,
Been a while since i've posted in this thread but i thought i'd go mining and dig it up as i have pulled the motor out to have some work done, and while thats happening the ute will be gettin a full respray.
All the tarp hooks will be removed and welded up, the towbar will be removed and the exit hole in the rear bar will be deleted and the exhaust outlet will be opened to fit twin 2 1/2" pipes. Would love to get a BA XR8 bonnet bulge grafted in but i will see what the bloke says when he comes to quote me.

At the moment i have just been looking at a full respray of the same colour but after a bit more thought i would love to go for a different colour.
Was thinking maybe BA Phantom mica or BA Mercury silver, but its very hard to decide.
Also trying to decide wether to keep the red strip or delete it completely.
So basically throw some suggestions my way, anything is welcome :wink: , and maybe even someone with some good photoshopping skills could change the coulour on this pic.
Well guys fire away, would love some good feedback.
Cheers Jeff
