Ok guys just about to start with the mods on My Au series 2 XR8
Ute. All the business's I used that have links will be put up here also weather or not the work they did or parts they supplied was up to scratch.
Will probally be a slow process but will give you a chance to see whats worked for me and what hasn't. Not building a street monster Like Minge, just tidying up what is already a great car in my opinion.
Where I am up to so far.
2) Ba scuff plates with xr logos
3) T-series door handles
Well I just rang up Herrod Motorsport
and ordered the following bits. (very helpful as usual)
Pannel filter (they said the pods will lose power on this model)$120
Coated intake pipe from throtle body to the Maf sensor.$150
3)T-series snorkle (not worth getting the SS inductions one apparently?)$45
Will fit them when they get here and let you all know if there was any difference in power (seat of the pants meter). Although I'm not expecting much with such minor mods.
Getting the windows tinted next week as well 10% on the back window and rear quarters and 15% on the sides. $150 (Platinum Detailing Lismore)
Next time I will be doing the Extractors/Exhaust/Chip
Extractors = Pacemaker Competition series (maybe HPC coated???)
Exhaust = Twin 2 1/2" with 2 straight through Lukey Race magnum mufflers.
Chip = Chiptorque
custom dyno tuned ecu.
Will give you dyno sheets when i make it up to Chiptorque
Oh well I'm off to pick up some Ghia bits from Ford Spare Parts now to clean up the inside a little more.
