Re: au xr6

I guess the first question is what sort of performance does he want and what sort of $$$ is he prepared to pay?

Re: au xr6

Pacemakers with high flow cat. If it's a VCT, leave the original twin pipe exhaust from the cats back, but if it's an XR6 HP, then upgrade to 2.5". K&N filter is also worth a shot as well as the T series/BA XR6 Turbo air intake pipe.

Other intake stuff that works well is as per your suggestion - blower/turbo.
