Go for a Textralia, work great with the 8's, take a lot of punishment and it's not too heavy :) From memory i think its about $1800 fitted and it includes clutch, flywheel, master cylinder and pressure plate

3 words.


mal wood automotive.

mal has clutch kits for all the 6 speed and 5 speed manual boxes.

look at my pics in my gallery, im running 300rwkw with the opt 3 clutch and it grips hard.

its actually easier on the foot than the stock one.

Mal Wood and Tex are both great clutches, can't go wrong with either. Here's just a lil read up on Textralia

Depends how you drive it and what kinda power you have. A Tex single plate Z grip ($1850 + fitting) is happy to be driven light or hard and will handle lots of punishment without compromising life span. Most after market clutches will see about a years worth of driving if you like to give it a hard time. So it's upto you if you wanna spend a lil bit extra on a Tex or Mal Wood that will last a while and take whatever you throw at it or buy a cheapo one which will have to get replaced more often. I've had my Tex clutch for nearly 2 years and there's still plenty of meat left on it

Have a look at www.textralia.com.au and see if there's anyone local that can do it, otherwise maybe give Chris from Bluepower a call and he might be able to recommend someone

Ripshifters are good to have and worth it. I had a Billet Quickshift on mine before and it was nothing but trouble so i don't recommend them, so if you're in the market for one i would only suggest a Ripshift. I had a play with my mates turbo with a 6 speed man in it and the throws were so long, but thanks to the turbo he doesn't need quick shifts. But it's a diff story in a v8.

My car's a lil battered atm thanks to idiots who can't drive! But here's some pics www.bseries.com.au/punktured

They're heaps of fun on the road :) Must more usable on the street because of the good bottom end power compared to the slug boss motors which start making power at around 3000 revs. On the strip it's a diff story though, the boss' good top end will kill a 3v.

While my car was broken a while back i got Craig's (from ACE) xr8 ute which had all the goods on it except for 4.10 lsd at the time and it was an enjoyable car to drive, but f**k i missed my car, it was making 255rwkw and did a pass of 12.15 in race trim but had not guts down low! To really get a boss off the line good they need 4.10 diff gears (3.7 for 5 speed manual)

Mmm from memory i think you'll be revving at about 2200rpm, not too sure on what the fuel economy would be like
