wtf i get the same amount of k's, 420 per tank but my trip never gets below 15.3, weird.


my trip is currently sitting around 12.6 but thats after an interstate drive, so that always brings it down. The trip computers aren't always accurate. The way i determine my fuel usage is by filling up to the first click, then driving till i need fuel. When i re-fill i remember how many litres it took and then i can work out how many litres it uses per 100kms.

thats a pretty good price, but the 5 speed gear boxes are not good for much more than 260rwkw if u slam the gears, they are ok if u drive like a nana though..

exhaust and cooler will more then likely get you 260 at the motor, which is still plenty enough for a family car. Just make sure you dont go for a ride in one thats been flashed though. Youll want one straight away.

yeh, factory intercooled.

flash tune usually gets you around 230rwkw for a generic tune doesnt it?

around around the 230 on a stock xr6t, with the exhaust and bigger cooler you should see a easy 260rwkw, mine kicks out somtehing fierce in a straight line not only corners

Forget the stock tune's in the flasher and get a custom tune its the only way to.

Once you same doing mods its hard to stop :D . I have 325 every day tune and 350 for dyno shoot outs etc 8-) and still thinking of what to do next.

thats a lot of power vibexr6t!

I noticed in your sig that you have done valve springs, injectors, fuel pump etc...

where did you go in s.a to get that done, or is it a home job?
was it pricey?

hahah

umm not for a little while longer!

Mine ran a 232.4rwkw with a 10psi generic tune in (not custom tuned to my car)

Feels like an animal with that - pulls like a schoolboy or Mitchanderson!

hey mate, you won't be able to boost it anymore then standard unless you have an edit or piggy back or after market ecu. A bigger cooler is not really worth the money until you get above and beyond 270rwkw. I didn't bother with mine till above 300rwkw.

Personally, i'd go injectors before intercooler, and then do the cooler at a later date. You can always run it on the dyno and check afrs, and if its sweet you won't need a re-tune. On the other hand, if you do injectors at a later date, you'll need a re-tune without a doubt.
