Re: My BA Mk2 XR8 Ute

Fitted a single 3" exhaust from Y-pipe back with a dump pipe just before the diff.

Sounds tough as. Took it for a run through the national park near my place on Sunday to bed the new clutch in... it sounds great and with the suspension mods (30mm front sway bar, sports gas shockers all round with adjustable height fronts) it is really a great ute to drive.

Just a few pictures of the XR8 at Powercruise in February at Sydney's Eastern Creek Raceway.

Had mega fun out on the track and doing some racing.

I figure someday Ford will resurrect the Ranchero in the states.
