Tax money to blow!

Just been to the accountant and my my the tax return is WAY bigger than I thought.

I originally filled out the e tax thing you download from ATO and it came to around $700 Im glad I went and paid the 88 dollars for the accountant to do it as its now blossomed to over $2400!!

Im thinking those AU manifolds look mighty fine right now!

I was also thinking about upgrading the front rotors to countract the go department.

Rims would be nice as would an exhaust....

God bles the ATO (Ill probably eat my words sometime in the future on this)

Re: Tax money to blow!

That's a pretty big difference! The e-tax program said I was going to get about $500 and ended up getting $800. It's just a weenie bit less than $2400!!!!!!!!! With that money you should be able to get a reinforced Kevlar rear bumper .

Why not price up an AU XR8 engine? There's a place in Fawkner, who are really good to deal with and charge reasonable prices, that have just had an XR8 ute come in and are wrecking it.

Re: Tax money to blow!

An AU engine might be a posibily depends on the price of this gear Im looking at. I dunno but I think extractors on an AU in an E Series doesnt fit.

HAHA, well the bumper is being done for free all of 1k worth of work there !

just rung that place and they have no AU engines only EL series 1. I might research this a bit more as the guy wanted 2200 for just the motor.

*cough* supercharger *cough*

Well, $2400 will get you a 1/3 way towards it :)

don't get el1, whatever you do. Unless your bottom end is very tired, your probably better heading towards some new heads ( 2400 would get you some nice aftermarkets I think - but need to factor in manifolds and rockers etc as well ).

Re: Tax money to blow!

Go the upgraded manifold and heads. Hopefully then we'll see a movie about a particular 6 getting owned by your 8 banger.

:D
