Question AU XR8 Mods

I am looking at a new Herrod exhaust (Complete) for my XR8 (220). I will also be fitting a new chip. Either a uni-chip, or a chip from Herrods that they map & supply. I am looking for some feedback from anyone who has fitted these & what they think.

Ive got a AUII XR8 220 and have the Herrods exhaust from Cats back and a Unichip, and I am getting 192rwKW and it sounds excellent, and boy does it go.

I had a BA XR6 Turbo decide it wasnt worth the shame to be beaten by an older brother.......We took off and I rocketed ahead, his turbo kicked in soon after but he couldnt quite catch me and gave up.

I think it was just under $3000 for the Unichip installed and tuned on the Dyno and exhaust, full S/S including header's and the Dyno tune again,Gained roughly 20 odd rwkw,cheer's.

Re: AU XR8 Mods

Well the Unichip supplied and fitted was $900 including the Dyno run,but that was over a year ago now,and price's may have changed since then so you really need to contact Herrod's and talk to them,cheer's.
