What should be different on the XR6 turbo?

i was just wondering what you guys think should be different on the turbo to make it stand out from the xr6 n/a.....
i think that bonnet scoops like that of the EF/EL would look good and people would know it was a turbo! what are your suggestions?

Yes, some bonnet vent's like those on the EL XR's,could let out some hot air as well.

They should put XR6T on the side skirts instead of just XR6. At least then when you look at it from the side you know its not a stock XR6, and bonnet vents would be good.

I think something on the bonnet for sure. XR6T on the skirts would also be sweet.

Re: What should be different on the XR6 turbo?

i think the should leave the side skirt xr6 badge as it is, but have another turbo badge just behind the front wheel arch, but before the door. i have seen this around and thought it looked great. im thinking of doing it myself. i seem to remeber seeing the turbo badges going for about 70 buks perhaps??? can anyone varify the price of the badges?
thanx

Leave it as it is, i love the sleeper effect....


Actually on second thoughts, it should have Brembo's peering out from behind the front wheels. That would do me :)

I believe they should use more distinct headlights on the xr6t and maybe a few more "turbo" badges here and there.
