Citric Acid XR6 Turbo

Hi all.

All going well (ie awaiting finance approval), my brother will be driving away in a Jan 2004 plated Auto XR6 Turbo on Wednesday. He has traded up his 220 Au2 Xr8 Manual with leather, premium sound, momo gear knob and steering wheel for this turbo which will have the 18's, premium sound and citric acid inserts, oh yeah, the exterior colour is the same. It will also be getting scuff plates, bonnet protector, and mud spats (a must have).

Personally, I think this new car is slower than his manual xr8, but it's hard to tell.

One quick question, will his K&N filter from the AU fit straight into the new car?

Re: Citric Acid XR6 Turbo

BA's use a different filter and I doubt if AU type filter or anything that fit's in AU will fit. I am sure K&N and BMC make a filter specifically for the BA's.

Thanks for the reply Cobra, good way of keeping K&N in business i guess.

What's everyones opinion of the Turbo's possibly getting quicker as they are run in?

Is it a bigger filter, cause the Box does certainly look bigger to me?

You could be right, maybe it's just the sound of his Xr8 that makes it sound faster. But I honestly think his 220 goes like a bat out of hell, and if you look at the power to weight ratio the 220 has a better power to weight.

Re: Citric Acid XR6 Turbo

Any idea what the trade figure your brother got on the AU 11?

$30000. That is the highest value according to redbook, so I think it was okay. What is others opinions?

Edit: He bought it as a demonstrator and paid $42000. So he lost $12000 in just under 2 years.

Re: Citric Acid XR6 Turbo

Finance was approved today, and the pickup is set for Friday. Could have been earlier, but Brisbane Car sounds are removing the car alarm from the AU on Friday Morning.

Hope all goes well with this car.

So it breathes better I guess.

Time is going slow waiting for Friday to come.
