Any BA XR8's in the 13's??

Hi all,
just wondering if any BA XR8 owners have broken into the 13's?? If so, what times? and what mods??

If not, how close have you got? and what mods??:)

Auto or manual?

Cheers
Jim

14.26 standard auto. Now have Herrod cat back exhaust and cold air intake and K&N filter with a Helical Throttle Body Spacer on the way. Hoping to run flat 14's.

This one here seems to have hit the high 13's. Unsure whether there are any mods tho.

Hopefully after friday night i'll have a sub-14 in my manual ute. So far i have the herrod zorst, cai and helix spacer. The other week i ran a 14.1 in it with room for improvement, so hopefully yes!

13.7 seconds is pretty quick from "basic" intake and exhaust mods. This is starting to look better.


People say money can't buy you happiness.... I say they just don't know where to shop.
