Word of warning though. Modifications on the V8's don't come cheap. A couple of grand will get you to 185kw or so, but after that, it is big bucks. With insurance, if you are over 25, it shouldn't be too much more, but if you are under 25, count on well over $1000 a year, if you can get insurance,
I love V8s, but looking at the mods list, you must've spent a bit of money on the EF. I would keep the EF unless it has some major problems. You won't be happy with the (low) performance of an EB - 165Kw. And you are going back to a car 2 or 3 years older too! So you'll probably want to do all of those mods again.
You could always turbo or super charge it, and it would then blow most EB XR8s (and others) away!

yeah, you sure cant beat the sound of a V8.. but I also wouldent mind supercharging the EF or a Turbo. Does anyone know what mods I can do to my gearbox to toughen it up alot, and also how much the DEV kits are and also how much rwkw gain i'd get from that. thanks for your opinions fellas. most appreciated.
For info on the dev kits, i'd search the forums, there is quite a lot of information around about them, i do remember that the Dev 3 was to be 130rwkw-140rwkw (depending who u speak too) for about $2000.
look at http://www.autospeed.com.au/A_1274/P_1/article.html for heaps of info.
I'd keep the EF and do a little to its appearance and look at more mods
