was at my local newsagency today and saw the latest zoom magazine. there is an article on another performance company hotting up xr6 turbos. basically they are getting in the region of 400 kw at the flywheel with around 761 nm of touque. the owner of the business reeled off a 0-100 km in 5.7 secs in the rain with a ute version. they are estimating moving around 30 cars a year with full warranty and with 24 hour roadside assistance covering australia and new zealand for those who want it. pricing in the region of $86,240 for the sedan and $75,480 for the ute. anyhow trying to post pics and the full article now should have the pics up soon for you to see.
IF IT AIN'T BIG ENOUGH STROKE IT.

Oh and I should add that it's even better to see these operations emerging in light of FPV's tardiness. I reckon the aftermarket will provide some VERY solid competition for them in a years time when the FPV Turbo is finally out (an ambitious assumption really).
Personally, I hope that more of these operations spring up and force FPV out of complacency and into releasing some new exciting stuff. It would be a great kick in the pants for them (and much needed). Not everyone can wait forever for their dream turbo!
