Hey guys been on here for a while just never started a thread on my car!
Here is a bit of a run down on my el xr6 which i bought in feb 08

performance:
- new cam (crow 549) with adjustable cam gear
- chiptorque chip (hp4)
- custom CAI
- xtreme HD clutch
- re-did the exhaust with 2.5" mandrel with 2.5" magnaflow cat

Other mods
- new plates
- silver stripes
- clear indicators
- ba badges

With the current setup i have run a 14.32 @ 96.46mph down at the motorplex with plans to improve on this once i have my 3.89's put in!

Only put the plates on today (got them for christmas) so gave it a good polish up for a photoshoot with my brother!

Nice tidy XR there mate!

Not 100% sure if I am a fan of the silver side strips or not....I tend to prefer them colour coded......was never a fan of the red ones the xr's got either

just a little update,
the 3.89s have been in for a few months now and i absolutely love them, definately recommend this ratio for any t5 falcon.
ended up running a 14.268 @ 96.77 on a 30 degree night and heaps of wheelspin
looking to go down again soon on a cooler night with a bigger throttle body and some more practice in hope of crackin the 13's!!

also went and saw a painter about getting a spoilerless boot put on and a dent fixed on my bonnet so yeah a few things will be happening this year!
going in powercruise so wana have it sweet for sep/oct
