Is jmm developing something for these?
I would assume there is a bit of power ready to be unlocked with cam changes and aftermarket management to allow intake and exhaust to act independently.
Ive just read about a guy getting 6.55 to 100kph in an xr6 n/a manual (im surprised!) with a standard engine.
Ok here is my assumptions: With a decent extractor/exhaust your looking at 15-20kw + computer tuning/piggy back computer another 10kw it's not hard to see 220kw out of the BA DOHC engine. Not sure about the 6.55 0-100km/h as the weight is a critical factor in 0-100km/h acceleration. I'd like to see a stock manual BA XR6 tested first.
