I am Stoked, I own one quick XR6T!

Background
*********
Over Xmas I decided to sell my EL 5.0L Fairmont and the $18k odd of brand new engine bits including supercharger kit that I had brought for a new engine for the car. Main reason was that with my job I would never get the time to put the thing together.

I decided to buy an XR6T for the simply reason that standard they are quicker than an XR8 and nearly as quick as a GT. They were also cheaper. The icing on the car was that I also wanted an APS Stage 2 kit fitted to it. This appealed to me as I simply drive in and drive out. Car is off the road for a few days.

Anyway, enough waffle, I have had the APS Stage II kit fitted in the last couple of weeks and tonight I went to Calder to see how quick the car was.

Tonight
******
The car has significantly less then 5,000ks on the clock, still has the same air in the 17" rear tyres as the day I picked it up from the dealer.

I drove off the street and had to wait for probably 1 hour becuase of an oil spill. First run was:

13.159 @ 108.61mph 60' was 2.262
I didn't not stall the car much, just basically floored it.


Second run was within about 10 minutes of the first run. This time I stalled it up to 2,000 rpm:

12.919 @ 109.62mph 60' was 2.122 (I am now in the 12 second club)


I then let the car sit for about 30mins and did one final run, again stalling it to about 2,000rpm:

12.586 @ 113.00mph 60' was 2.120
Wowwwwwwwww

XRFPV8 witnessed this run as he was racing against me!


I do not recall any wheelspin in any of the above runs. Just goes to show how easy it can be to get your XR6T sedan into the 12's on factory 17" street tyres.

I have also had APS do the auto mod (line pressure increase), fit a trans cooler and upgrade the valve springs.

I could not be more happy with the quality of APS's work and I think the performance figures speak for themselves.


Cheers,

Mick

Mate, Well done. Any car in the 12's is a f@*king fast car. What did it set you back after all the mods? Bet you still got a huge grin on your face

Re: I am Stoked, I own one quick XR6T!

Thanks guys,

boss 8, the total cost for the APS Stage II kit, auto mod, cooler and valve springs was $7390. This includes fitting and tuning obviously.

Cheers,

Mick

Well done Mick, it goes to show the potenial of the T's and the bang for your buck for the mods.

Any thoughts on upgrading to the APS Stagelll kit and knocking off Mark's (100%) time of 11.9 in his ute?

Big Mick, A fantastic result you must be stoked with your time. That is if I am not mistaken the quickest time for a xr6t on street tyres. Congratulations from all at APS.

Thanks Rodderz,

Yes 100%'s time is fantastic for a daily driven street car, however I have no intention of running anything other than street rubber on my car. I have only ever raced my cars in EXACTLY the same condition I drive them on the street.

Where that takes me to next with mods I don't know yet, however I think I have little or no chance of 11's on street tyres.


Cheers,

Mick
