hey i just got a ford ute xf for free of my dad as i am getting my license soon the car runs of gas and is obviously all stock i need to respray it to original colour lower it and put some fat stokies on the bak, what other performance mods could i do to this car to make it have more accelration or power i was thinking exhust and extractors but would this help much? and if so by how much? also are there any other things i could do other then putting a turbo in.... maybe shave the head would this help much??
i really need some help because of take off the car goes sooooo slow and i dont kno what to do anymore....
btw wat is a 250 as i was in other forums i always saw that '250' what sort of engine is that and does it make it go much harder?

id go for extractors and exhaust first, a good set will set you back around $350-450 depending on the brand, and around $200-250 for a good 2 1/2'' sports exhaust. there are probably good for a gain of anywhere up to 15rwkw. (i think)

i didnt think the XF's could be 'chipped' as such... didnt think the computers lend themselves for that sorta mod...

exhaust and extractors are the necissary starting point for any bog-stock falcon motor.
then if you like, go for something other than the stock cam for better performance.. but that could cost a bit depending on the overal condition of your xf.

how many km's are on your xf mate?

is it auto or manual? dropping your diff gears to a 3.23 would give u more acceleration and still a reasonable cruiseing revs, could put a T5 manual in and drop the diff gears even further as well as the lower 1st gear that standard, all depends on how much u wanta spend

Depends on how much money you got & how hard/fast you wanna go.
