nice car mate, I love the look of the EA/EB's. I have always wanted to get a V8 bright red one, and just drop it on its ass, with a nice set of mags, and dark windows. They look great like that, no need for outragous kits!

nice mate

I cut that bit in front of the opening to make one large hole, then screwed mesh behind it.

In the bonnet I cut two holes in the skin at the back and put mesh in, I cant get a defect for it this way and it lets out a lot of heat!

Hi Mitch they are 18x8`s, I got em for $2,100 with tyres from a company that was closing down (My Car in Syd).
Im told they retail for about $530 a wheel, and as a bonus they cool my brakes around 70% more than stanard XR8 rims.

Looks great. Whats been done to the engine, and how did you manage to get 200kw+ with the stock intake.

Hi EDXR8,
Ive ported the heads (lots of attension payed to the exhaust)
And I opened up the inlet manifold (8hours of port work alone on this) these inlets are not that bad when they have had some work done, the rest of the internals are near stock outside of blueprinting.

But all will be changed as ive now got a 6speed box, 9in diff going in next month, and im in the proceeds of putting together a 347ci motor with 580hp+ (no supercharger or nos either) but the motor wont be ready till march as work and my family leave little time for my car.
Cheers
Daniel
