Ride: ef fairmont turbo

Power: 213 rwkw

Location: melbourne
VIC, Australia

xr6 182kw, 0-400m 15.4secs.
xr6t 240kw, 0-400m 14.0secs
xr6t is clumzy with manual and good with auto where as xr6 is lazy with auto and goes good with manual.
as for insurance get some online quotes from justcars, racv ect.
honestly if it were me, ild spend a bit extra and get the turbo

i wouldnt put ULP in either of the 2, both run 10x better on premium fuel and return better fuel economy. Yes the turbo is mandatory for PULP but if its fuel savings you want u best buy an Egas XT.

9/10 times preimium will return better performance and economy in any car

Run the turbo if the bank (wife/girl) lets you. Have an NA6, just chasing my tail with power increases. The only reason I got the NA6 is b/c it was at a bargain price at the time, and I got quoted $2960 vs. $600 on insurance TURBO - NA6.

I culdn't afford it, and preferred to make 30 with my driving style! :D

my wife says i love that car more than her and i think she is right....
