All for looks.. On a stock engine it would do little.

he is dreaming with the price in my opinion anyway, i have a mate with this set up, it is a quad weber manifold with tb blocks on top, it is a good set up, but it costs somewhere around 3000 to set up brand new, and you would have to box in the top of all the trumpets and run piping to some sort of airbox or filter set up to make it legal or the cops would have a field day.

but one thing that is definetly true, it looks as tuff as.

C'mon mate thats a bargain, you would probably pay 14-16g for a stock xr8, this one has got stuff all km's 18" mags, bodykit and so on.

As a majority, many people who buy cars don't want anything like that.. Ford won't 'know a thing' if trying to fix a problem. They want a car that works as a daily driver.. Why raise the price on something like that? Many people know that money spent on a car is like sending light through a black hole. You shouldn't expect anything back.

Pfft, by supercar relica or whatever, he means he's put the Group A front spoiler on an otherwise stock AU... tool. And forgive my ignorance, but without being boxed or anything aren't they just going to suffer from the hot air right under the bonnet??

BTW. "heaps kilowatt at back wheels, engine 2 hours old???? WTF ROFL :lol: :lol:

If you want that set up, goto D.C and o products out at Nerrellan, as that is who does them, and where I got mine from. And it is good, especially when you have the cubic inches to go with it.
