Hey all just purchased a BF XR8 Ute and i want to start the mods.
I'm looking at getting complete new exhaust(headers, high flow cat, 2 1/2" system), cold air intake, and then a Flash Tuner. Does anyone recomment other mods to do, before/after etc. Cheers

All depends on the size of your wallet. Some other things to think of is, if auto - 3000 hi stall and 4.11s, if man - Textralia clutch, Ripshift and 4.11s - and under drives. But the first thing you should really do is put billet oil gears before you get too carried away with mods

Yes upgrade the driveline first, They have a beaut exhaust and intake already. More stall, diff gears first. Thats how I`d do it. 8-)

Drive it for a while and think about what you want to do.

A V2-T supercharger works well ...

But seriously, pipes and a good tune should give you around the 230rwkw mark (unsure about the fuel system and clutch) and sound great.

Think about what you want to do with your ride ... and let us know is you have the ZF or Tremec.

Full exhaust, air box, underdrives and tune should see more like 250rwk
