Extractors & thermo's are a great start for more power. Probably next cheap power mod is under drives. My Xr8 has extractors & big exhaust on it. No thermo fans yet, will probably convert it once it's on the road. My g/f's red Xr8 has thermo's, but were damaged by the accident, i will replace them when it's time to get it on the road. They do make a good improvement.

Cheers

A 3.45 diff would be a bit of a waste if it wasn't a lsd. My wagon used to spin too easy on a 3.27 single spinner. Second and third were the best though, geez I miss that box sometimes, very jealous hehehe.

Because it doesnt run the 4 bolt flange on the tailshaft, just the half cap type on the yoke ...
