Finally some pics!

So far removed rear muffler (still unhappy with sound), purchased bulge Boss 260 stickers (in transit), removed factory wing - fitted bobtail. Full service including trans, purchased rear end bushes (too be fitted).

Horse powers!!!!

Rodger from John Edwards lives across the road from me! So he has tune/dyno hookups so I'll do a few simple mods, get it sounding the way I like and then I'll glue on 30kw with a tune.

From there some lowerage, 19"s, lower front mesh, towbar removal, and perhaps - just perhaps supercharger!!!!!!

Wicked! Haha, Rodger will sort you out no doubt about it :wink:

Like the sound of the supercharger being a plan maybe :twisted:. A guy by the username of 'tnt' over on NZ ford forum just supercharged his BA XR8 recently with a Kenne Bell charger kit, with fitment and tune done through Robin @ Torque Performance. They managed to get a safe 391rwkw result out of it :shock:

I wasn't looking that go that hard - would probably want to do it non-inter cooled, positive displacement jobbie, maybe yellowterra, cheaper :) Less scary 8-) :lol:

Ouch!

On a nicer note though, the XR looks a million times better with those matte black touches and the bonnet decals, ties in nicely together 8-). You might have to get along to one of our next forum meet ups or something haha, be good to check this beast out!

Yeh, I seriously have too.


On a brighter note, picking up a Remus exhaust system next Sunday, including cats - $500
