          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 ?

              do some mods, these things love it.

              XR6 Turbo air intake.

              Limited slip diff.

              Bigger intercooler and a tune and shell fly.

                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.

                  I meant XR8 sorry.

                    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.

                        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.
