I'm starting to go through the process of working out what I want to do.
My current car will see me through for another year or 2 but then it will be change time.
And I will be going forced induction in a big way.

Let's talk about what you would start with and what you would do to get 400 rwkw.

I'll be going for the current FG shape I think (unless anything better looking comes out in the next 2 years) - but if you had the choice would you start with;

a) XR6T 270
b) F6 310
c) GT 335


And then, thinking in terms of average stock factory rwkw for each of the above, what list of mods would see you get to 400rwkw - and pricing. State your starting assumption of stock rwkw and what you would do to up the ante !!

I'd buy the GT, throw an exhaust on it and give it a tune.

prob go the xr6t in my opinion. 44 for the car and 11k for the nizpro kit which made 412rwkw
still works out near 15k cheaper than the other two options and 150kg lighter as well

Ive read in a few places now that between an XR6T/F6 and a GT with the same amount of peak power the turbo 6 will have more power available in the midrange making it a faster car.

It wont sound as good though.
