Definately go the Unichip and high flow filter. I think the Stage 1 kit now requires new injectors to get 300kws, otherwise you can only get 280kw on the standard injectors, so it might be more than $1250.

I'm not sure about whether this is correct or not, but I do know that he is talking about 2k......

Re: 2K to spend... What first!

the same Sundeep :)
red EF did me well... loved that car..
still not attached to this T as i was to the EF..
some good times :)
i've come to a few meets with it.

this one, i've only brought out to the APS day last weekend.


Got a xr6t earlier this year... hell of a lot faster..
and the put.put.put.put sound is orgasmic :)
heheheh

with the mods.. there is alot that can be done.. i'm just trying to determine which one is best for buck.
i dont really have a budget. but i'm willing to spend up to 2k or abouts.

the bug hasnt bitten with this car yet.. if it does.. i'll spend more.

Sundeeps XR6T is a stock auto and went 188 KW on the dyno, and had a torque curve higher than Joe Cocker....nice numbers

Re: 2K to spend... What first!

Go the stage 2 kit and the bug will bite hard!!! It's a round $4-5k but....
For the money, you can't go past a stage 1 kit. You'll be doing mid 13's all day.

Hi Turbo6i. Have a look HERE at what i have done. If money isn't an option i'd go for either the Nizpro or APS kits. If, as in my case money is not in over abundance, you could do similar to what i have done. My car has the runs on the board too, have a look at my sig.
If you'd like to have a chat about mods PM me. If your near Chadstone let me know and i'll show you my car.

Geea.

Yes, as Geea mentioned there are other alternatives if you wish to take a more hands on approach and save some money. Have a chat to him first, I'm sure it would be worthwhile.
