Re: New mags BA XR6

LOL...not after he spent that amount of dough on the extractors, exhaust and all...it'd all just go to waste. That's exactly what I did before I drove my XR6 into TSA for the very first time, learnt my lesson the hard way.

Re: New mags BA XR6

mal - Don't worry about that - that's nothing compared to the cost of these wheels! And he could always sell those bits on here. It NEEDS to be done. A car that looks that good, has to have the go to match the show (as you well know).

Re: New mags BA XR6

Good to know that you've got the dough to back up the mods Shane. Didn't imply that you don't but if I did, sorry.

Yes, bring on FORCED INDUCTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Words of a wise man!! Good stuff.

I'd be interested to see how many companies will do aftermarket blower kits for the standard BA 6s and how effective they are.

Re: New mags BA XR6

NICE Blueprint beauty there, nice rims, I've been thinking of similiar ones for our Phantom beast.

I do have a question though......

OK, The SS Inductions Snorkel? Is it really worth putting on an N/A? It's definatley a benefit for the XR6 TURBO I was told not to bother by several sources for the N/A as they will not improve performance in an Naturally Aspirated motor. Some actually get squashed down once the bonnet is closed. My XR still has the standard XR6 N/A snorkel.

Unless you are doing 180+ everywhere, it doesn't matter how much air goes through the opening, you still have the same sized opening at the end of the hose. Correct me if I'm wrong.....Hell If I am, I will probably get the XR6T snorkel for approx $35.
