Hey guys well ive had my 98 el xr6 since feb and am just loving it but from the start of last week i have started making improvments to it

At the moment it has

-factory 5 speed
-factory tickford body kit
-factory sound system with 6 stacker

pretty much every is factory lol

I am without my car for the next week due to a Ba xr6 turbo engine conversion going into it :), which bruce at heinrich performance and tuning is doing. That should be done by this friday or early next week. Am missing my car badly :( but it is going to come back to as a completly different car :).

This is what she looks like

When my car is back from the shop with the new engine in it i am buying a $1500 big brake upgrade for the front which includes 330mm rotors bigger calipers, whole different brake setup.

future plans are

-lowered gt monroe sport shocks all round
-18 inch bf cobra copies
-3inch full exhaust
-double din head deck
-german meastro sound system (best sound system :P)
-twin 12 inch rockford fosgate subs
-change the colour of the interior which i have prototypes already made up
and that should do it.

Very nice car mate, should hammer with the XR6T engine. Just with the brake upgrade, i think you might need 17" wheels minimum.

Not bad for $220 primed and delivered to my door.

she is coming along very well...

Before my car went for the engine conversion i did the blue led cluster conversion and that didnt work out so good.....my leds blew up and all sorts so i put the standard one back in lol....but am now thinking of buying a nl cluster or making a custom cluster using red drift gauges but we will see.

haha yeh anthony ill take ya for a spin...literaly lol nah dnt wanna attract attention but yeh will do.

yeah she is gonna absolutely go like a greased pig with the barra 240t in it cause he has to do a dyno tune aswell and bruce said it should make around 240-250 at the wheels :).

yeh only need 17 inch rims for the brake upgrade but i work at bob janes so i can get the 18's cheaper plus i can put wider tyres on it to make it stick......untill i get the rims i was thinking about getting some kumho ku36 semi slicks...they are $220 each in the 225/50/16's.
