It wouldn't take much to get the T200 or T220 engine to power past 250kw. Look at heads, cam and an ECU edit and you've got grunt.

My mate has a series 2 200kw ute, he bought it new in 01 and has been an awesome car.
Only things that he done were lower it and fit a full Herrod exhaust system.
I've driven it a few times and it goes well.

Not even heads, just cam and tune would do it...

Pursuit 250 just got passed in on ebay, owner was asking 26K I wouldn't call that expensive when you pay 22K for a stocker.

Can someone award this guy a strike, that rude language.

I make valid point. At the same price, the commonwhore gen3 ute will blow you with your pants off.
