Thumbs down BA Vs Ea's .. a Value For Money Perspective

Whatz with the carrying on about the Barra??
It's gunna be $35000 for a stock Falcon and $50 ish for a XR8 with power figgers that no one knowz for sure

The EA is about 3-4000 ... with a few moddz it will be 180Kw .. cut the springz to get a mad ride height and it'll handle on railz!

I cant justify so much on a car that doesnt do it for me

your a MUPPET!

stick with your clapped out EA, and all us prospective buyers of the BA can drool over its vast improvements in handling, luxury, comfort, styling, power over your full sike moite EA

btw, to get an EA to 180kw isnt as easy as it sounds. its a dud engine, that requires attention to make it any better.

my 2c
bring on BA!

a muppet is you. its just like calling you a tool, or a moron etc, except, i use muppet.

so erm, if i gut me cat, and put a k&n in my EF, i should have 210kw, sweet! think i might go and do that now. oh wait, its got a K&N and a full exhaust system and cam, and that costs a LOT more than your simple mods to produce those figures. ur mod = $100. my mods = $2000...

damn if you had of been around before i spent that 2k, i would of saved a packet!

FYI the ea was pushing approx 120kw from factory, with what mods do you think you'll gain an extra 60kws?
