Hi Everyone

I thought I would finally put together a garage thread. Hope you enjoy, there will be more coming soon when A) I drag myself back into the garage and B) save some more cash

Anyway this is my XH XR6
Image
The Plates are my surname
Image
Repro EL-GTs and RDA rotors, which you can't see in the pic but have turned a nice purple and blue due to the gold electroplating.
Image
JMM DEV3-HL head package,
my old man did the intake for me and the oil air seperator on the firewall,
K&N pod in arcon plastics airbox,
dagger dipstick.
The exhaust is a JMM 2.5" dumped at the diff, race series extractors, race modified cat (whatever that is. says it on the invoice).
T5 with a billet products shifter into an alloy tailshaft
All up 153rwkw and 111.5db :twisted:
Image
Me and my dad built the sub box, it houses a clarion slim-line 10"
Image
Inside there is a momo steering wheel, hurst shifter with ba boot,
Some carbon fibre work, fg scuff plates and a painted surround.
Also Pioneer coaxials and a couple of amps
Image
I swear, it was aquired legally :D
Image
And I had this pic on my computer so i thought you might like to see my stable table.

Thanks for looking
Ben

Well I suspect that is an xhII, judging by the el gear but i believe it was still an option or something of that nature, but i guess we'll find out for sure when he replies..

Nah no airbag. It is a series 2 however and i think the original wheel mentioned an airbag so I don't know what the story is. I changed it over a while ago so can't really remember, I do remember being really careful.

Thanks NZEA. My Dad is a fitter and turner and works in the food industry so stainless is his thing. When i get some more cash to buy the materials we will be putting together a stainless 2.5" exhaust into twin 2" exiting out the drivers side.

Thanks for the kind words
Ben

XHI & II had Airbag systems - std on the 'S' model, optional on other models.
XHII non airbag models had an EF/EL wheel, with an airbag cover - the SRS emblem was replaced by a Longreach badge.

Hope that sub doesn't have too much juice. Right next to your head! Lol. My mate had 2x 12" slimline pioneers with too much power in his ute. Down right silly.

NP.
XHI's (excluding XR6)without Cruise or Airbag get the ED wheel.

Hey guys just a quick update with some engine bay bling

I finaly put on my ceramic coated intake along with a chrome fuel rail and 20lbs injectors. Also I changed the tb to a 68mm item and modified my oil/air seperator so it is now a breather setup.
And the little spikes are rediculously sharp, I cut myself everytime I check my oil.

The engine bay itself is filthy and the extractors are begining to rust so just ignore that

Anyway, enjoy
