come into some decent money, really wanna spend some on it and be happy with it at least till im off my p'z n have a monster lol, its got tint n stuff needs to be lowered but im looking more at engine mods, it needs power and im wondering if a capa kit for 9k all up in the end once its fitted is worth doin instead of spendin nearly the same turboing it to run 10-12psi?(200-250rwkw)...i know diff and transwill need work too so post focus is engine mods to pull 13'z!!!

Agree..... settle for low/flat 14's in N/A..... or save for an XR6T

If you keep it N/A read this article for some ideas

..... then chuck in some 4.11 diff gears and a high stall

why is that always the first thing that comes to mind, like its so simple to sell a car in the first place to make enough money on it to be able to upgrade! And then i come to forced induction forum to be told i should work it n/a lmao i know theres alot of posts on a turbo xt conversion, but now alot of cars have been done so i was hoping for some logical replies on basic goods needed for turbo setup,etc . makin my xt run 13'z isnt a big ask and im sure that could even be achieved running the limited 10psi? (if im correct on that)
..im off the p'z in about 8 months so that is wen ill be lookin at gettin my a** in the seat of an fpv!

Speak to Geoff at Snort he's got kits for these that start from $3k this also depends on what add on that you want as the total cost.

He has a BA XT 3V thats got a remote mounted set up with no intercooler on 9 psi that pulled 320-330rwkw & on the 1/4 it ran 11.77sec check his web site
