xr8 mods

im thinking of changing the spark plugs in the ute to the platnum type.. also bigger/better leads.

is it worth the trouble?

also, maybe a new set of injectors.. or some cams.

would i be better off spending money on a re-map or chip?

any experience with these?

Re: xr8 mods

They already have platinum plugs and because they have coil on plug ignition they don't have spark plug leads. Changing injectors won't give you any extra power until the standard ones run out of flow capacity.

Re: xr8 mods

Bossxr8 is spot on with his reply..plugs are supposed to last 150,000 klm
Teza if you change the Cams you going to need the chip, so the tuner can mix all your air feul and timing ratio's properly. You will need to speak to Rob Herrod about Cams they are doing quiet a few DJR cars lately they get there cams replaced...if you want just a chip and dyno tune i can get you a good deal on that...Before you do any more mods run at Calder on 16/4 then you can see what your new mods are doing for you...
