XR6T - 299rwkw

Hi all,
I am a new member and would like some advice/opinions.

I am extremely interested in buying a 2003 XR6T manual. This car has a dyno proven 299rwkw and 650nm, so it is a beast. The mods are as follows.

Larger injectors, fuel pump and intercooler
Premium brake package
Colour coded cam cover
Leather interior and wheel
Lowered on Herrod springs using K-Mac adjustable caster/camber kit – results in a very controlled smooth ride
Herrod Bi-Plane spoiler
SS cold air induction with in-airbox pod filter
3" exhaust system
Motec computer
Premium sound system with infinity speakers

It is running 10psi.

I know that the engine is running great and there are know problems there, but what I would like to know is whether or not the gear box, clutch, drive shaft, diff etc would hold up to all the extra power. There seem to be know problems with them at the moment, but is something likely to develop in the future, and how the drive train will handle this.

Your help is much appreciated.

Cheers

Re: XR6T - 299rwkw

I'm not sure I believe the output. Did the dyno chart show only 10psi on it?

I have seen 285 rwkw on 10 psi with a graph to prove it. This is in NQ so it is quite possible to get 299 down south where the temps are 10 to 20 degrees cooler which can add an easy 15rwkw or more.

im not sure about turbo cars,but with a bigger intercooler and injectors and motec comp i would of thought that 10 pound would easily achieve 299rwkw

Yes this is all dyno proven.

Any idea how the running gear would deal with it?

Depends on your driving style, if you are smooth with the changes and not flat shifting it everytime you get in then it should be sweet.

Re: XR6T - 299rwkw

If its a T5 manual, the gearbox won't last long at 299rwkw. It is at its manufacturers recommended limit at 450Nm of torque, so any power / torque upgrade will kill it sooner. I'd expect it must have an upgraded clutch as well as the standard clutch would have fried by now. Diff should be OK though.

Re: XR6T - 299rwkw

can you get it registered with a motec computer? I have been trying to figure out what to do with a project car, and to register it has to be running the original computer. Thats in Vic anyway.

lets get sideways!!!
