What the...?

You're telling me you could have bought a 6 speed automatic FPV F6 Typhoon, but instead, you purchased..........a white BA XT???

Hmmmm. O.K. I get the whole "want to do up a base model and make it my own" thing, but come on...AN F6!!! s**t, that would have to be more unique than any modded XT wouldn't it?

Plus, if you did get the bug to create a "show" car or "something unique" the Typhoon would have been the ULTIMATE base to start from. Twin turbo, custom interior, custom paint etc etc...

Still, whatever blows your hair back I suppose...

my 2 cents!!! woot

man, in a lot of ways, i reckon the XT's look nicer than the XR's anyway.
i think with a little work they look a lot more muscly than the XR's, as the XR's look sporty.
eerr, like comparing say a stingray to a mustang.
if that makes any sence.

i would tend to think once again, because i believe the XT's can look fairly muscley, that a supercharger would be more suited, rather than the more "ricer" style of twin turbo.

if you went with doing up a typhoon, it would only prove one thing.
you have to much money, and you should buy me a car.

I think you need to learn the definition of ricer, because twin turbos definately are NOT.

why dont you do something completely different on a falcon six and supercharge it as well as a huge single turbo, so you have the initial boost of the supercharger, but when the big turbo spools up you have the powr from that. now that would be something to see.

One problem !! TRACTION !!!!

There's nothing worse than spending $$ to the power and then not being able to use it.
