    Cheers mate. When I first bought it, I had a VE SS want to race me on the motorway. Needless to say, a few hundred metres later the SS owner was not happy. When I flash tune it, It should pull easy mid 12s.

    Not sure what to do at the moment. Start modding the G6ET or wait and potentially upgrade ?

    G6ET and XR6T intakes are exactly the same. I was thinking more along the lines of Bigger turbo, surge tank and fuel pump and 1000cc injectors. Bigger cooler obviously and turbo-side intake with exhaust mods thrown in for good measure. Easy 370-380rwkw (500-520rwhp)

    LSD is first thing on the list.

    A new shock and spring combo is on the list as well as some proper discs and pads. Now you see why I'm thinking of upgrading. It'll be alot cheaper.

    Awesome horsepower but it's crazy that they'd put that into something that looks like something you'd get as a boring bland rental car.

    Factory sleeper? heh

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

    It's the best thing about the car. No one else knows what's under the bonnet until the foot goes down.

    Did it to a guy in an E92 M3. His reaction was priceless.

    I thought you meant XR8 but it doesn't matter. I'll end doing a turbo-side intake anyway.

    I also swapped the rear diff bushes for polyurethane bushes from Superpro and what a difference the two modifications have made ! No longer does the car axle tramp under hard acceleration and with the new LSD, the car accelerates with almost no wheelspin.

    Congrats mate, nice ride...
    I used to have a BA mkII XR6T, an ex chaser. Standard upgraded brakes, suspension, intercooler and some other stuff. Then some other mods... I loved the way the car accelerated at 180kph. Man, how quick that thing took off at those speeds. Not that I did that of course.

    Had to sell it, for the greater good, bought a house. I wish I had your ride...

    Cheers mate. I've wanted an XR6 turbo/G6ET since the day they were released back in 2002. I remember telling my mate in High School that these cars would be something special. I wasn't wrong.

    I didn't have a clue. I just wanted a cool looking car, stepped into a dealership, stepped into the turbo and drove it..... Nice.
    Then the saleschick said floor it, there are no camera's here.
    Speechless.

    You've done well, don't get killed.
