Re: 182kw Barra BA Ute v $5000 more

Reside in Queensland.
Any cheap idea's to squeeze flat 15?
Been on this site for a day only. Sounds like exhaust and diff ratios
are some of the ways, but I woudnt call them cheap.
Please excuse my ignorance. Iam a novice at getting cars to go hard,
let alone driving a Ford Ute.
My selling point to Ford v Commy was of course the extra grunt.
Hope you can help

Welcome to the site buddy, good to see the bug has bitten and you're already trying to mod it before you pick it up.

Good luck and let us know how you go.

You could always start with the air filter and a larger intake, it is early days for the Barra 182 yet, and most attention has gone on the Turbo & Boss engines.
