Re: ba xr6 upgrades

Sell it and get an XR6 Turbo

Kidding ... brakes and suspension is worth an upgrade, expecially the simple upgrade of the front swaybar (Whiteline 27mm is a good option). Opening up the inlet tract is a good thing, so get a K&N or BMC or KingDragon filter (or whatever), add the second snorkel from the Typhoon (cheap enough from Ford, and you don't need a 'phoon VIN to buy one)

Seriously .... don't bother with an electric supercharger - 7 horsepower gain? Whoa nelly!

Re: ba xr6 upgrades

loop's right - get a good intake filter and brakes for starters.
Also consider getting your computer programming upgraded - there's a few places around that can increase power output on the NA 6 by a fair few KWs.

I bought a GT35 turbo (same as 'phoon one) - about $1.5k for the turbo, plus intercooler (about $300 for a cheapish one) and then all the hoses and stuff - total about $5k-6k if you do your shopping and have it installed by a fair mechanic. Heard another bloke with a Futura say it cost him nearly $8k to get his up an running with a smaller turbo - just be careful who you go to.

If you're looking for more ideas, check out the Ford DRIF6 custom drifting typhoon - even though it's a 'phoon, some of the upgrades they've done to it could be done on an NA 6.
