Hey guys, first time posting here :)

Just wanted to ask if there is much of a difference between a BA XR8 and the V8s in the Ghia.

Is the upgrades over time going to differ much and are the parts for an XR8 going to fit onto my engine fine?

Novice getting into some modding with this car.

Thanks in advanced.

2 different engines. The XR8 has big 4 valve heads and makes 260 kw. The Ghia is a 3 valve head that makes 220 kw. Exhaust and air box are pretty much 6 cylinder items on the Ghia ie small. XR8 has different airbox and upgraded exhaust.

Not many things interchange between the 2. Extractors, intakes etc are different setups.

If it's a 220 you are upgrading then do an airbox, extractor, exhaust and tune upgrade.
