Thought I may as well put up a thread here to show off my pride and joy.

2005 BF XR8. 6spd semi auto, picked her up late 2008 for $19,500.

Here are some photos of her first coming home:

Now as it stands:

Scuff plates:

boss powah!

Mods done are:

Go: X-Force headers, hi flow cats, X-Force twin 2.5" catbacks ending in quad rears (looks tops) BPR airbox, Custom BTA tune (making 245rwkw)

Stop: DBA slotted front rotors and Ferodo pads

Show: Tripod gauge on the dash (from left to right: Engine oil temp, AFR, Engine oil pressure) XR scuff plates in front doors

Plans: 19" Dark Agent Rims, lower suspension (after i knock out a section of the driveway as she already catches on it), dark window tint.


So that's what's been keeping me happy for a while :)

On one of the pictures, the handbrake seemed to be up fairly high... is that normal for the BA's???

EDIT: woops, I ment BA-BF's :oops:

Looks like the handbrake could use some adjusting - it's a common problem.

Sarge, you coming to the dyno day coming up? We need more 8's to show. nsw-act-cruise-forum-f9/holden-v-ford-round3-dyno-day-t74142-40.html

They 'stretch' for want of a better term, tightening them up will reduce the travel of the lever, and prevent a day when even all the way up the hand brake doesn't bite.

The funds you'd get if you were to hock off the ZF would probably suffice for your manual conversion.
