what the Turbo can really do

okay... this is what we are looking at....a siler XR6Turbo, with the standard 17'' wheels, standard exhaust, breaks, pretty much everything, except......
the boost in the turbo has been turned up...from 6psi at 3500 rpm its now 9psi, and from 5000-5500 rpm its gone from 5psi to 7psi.... and thats not all....it also has a Unichip Engine control unit! Now if this doesnt tickle your fancy....listen to this
the power out put is now 295Kw's, the 0100 is now 5.39secconds and the 0-400m is a woppin 13.61@178.8kmph.....
that leaves the HSV GTS Coupe with its 300kW's for dead!!!!
and u can have all this done for...$1590 FITTED!!!!
if u have aturbo i urge u to get this!

Re: what the Turbo can really do

Does the Unichip cause the severe radio interference on BAs like it did on AUs?

Some interesting numbers there. Like the XT V8 with 4rwkw more then the Clubsport. The GT made some power!

Man I wish I had the cash to get an XR6T! I reckon I'll wait a couple of years and try and get one then!
