My XR8 is running good on a 3 inch zorst and hitech headers and a 100HP shot nitrous kit. What do you guys reckon the next best step is take that would give the biggest noticable difference in the 1/4? cam? air intake?
Im not so worried about the times im getting with nos. Just the times running standard. Or perhaps mods that would be good for both.

What model is it?
Heads, Manifold. TB, MAF, injectors. Bigger cam.
That'd see you knocking on the high 100rwkw's door N/A.

Well I'm no expert, but it's widely accepted that the E7 heads and HO manifold flow 2 tenths of f**k all.
That's also the biggest expense, so I'd be looking at turfing those before anything else.

No idea mate. Like I said, I'm no expert, just giving some generic advice.
I'm happy with my Cobra manifolds and GT40's!

Agree with Vic. GT40Ps will cost you about $1000 on average, sometime a bit less. Explorer manifolds seems to be around the $550/600 mark.
