Ride: BA mkII XR8

Location: NEWCASTLE
NSW, Australia

I'm now completely "over" the 5.0 windsor engine, after recently spending no more than $2500 on the "better" parts to fit to the new toy.
All that I have done is change the exhaust, fit some better plugs, a cooler thermostat,cold air, air filter and the best investment a Flash tuner to custom tune it, and am now getting around 260kw at the wheels.
For the same type of power on the EL XR8 I just traded, it cost me atleast 3X that amount, and still was not even in the same league with torque and low down grunt.
Just try and imagine what the next generation boss motors will have going for them, I hear ford engineers are currently experimenting with VCT ,and possibly a SCT blower from the states which will sport around a modest 400kw with only 6psi of boost?

maybe i shouldn't rule out an xr8 when i go to purchase a BF.
260KW at the wheels is pretty good with just minor mods like that, that's about 60-65KW more than stock.

I REMEMBER THAT CAR AND ENGINE BAY!!
Good to see your still keen to mod it, and id have to say your brakes are bloody wicked.
This car goes like nothing else, is definately something different, from your everyday xr8.

you reckon it went well "that" night, well...... it now goes heaps quicker!
Just a warning guys, if you do make the change for the better!
make sure you are prepared to have the clutch changed to a better unit once you go past the 280kw mark (flywheel), as I am losing heaps of time with a slipping clutch, but best time yet is a 12.98 1/4

You gave the brakes and the gearbox a good working out to and from the shops i'll give it that. Sounds like a load more fun now.
Surprised you havent posted about brands of tyres yet..........
