G'day
my brother is having a bit of trouble with his XR8
i thought i might check the tuning on it
How do i go about it? i know how to do it on my I6 ute, but have no idea where to start on the V8 and even if it is possible or not?
Any help would be much appreciated!
Cheers

He is having trouble starting it and it is a really rough idle, lead and plugs are new. think the timing might be out a bit.
