Re: Has anyone modded their BA I6?
Hello. Yes, I had my BA XR6 recently modded with APS unichip. It is now 200fwkw, 150rwkw and 400Nm torque. Also improved fuel economy. Had the chip tuned for PULP too, BP Ultimate (the only choice apparently) so that helped things a bit, and also got me better fuel economy - my air/fuel ratio was shite. As I have mentioned elsewhere on this site, they come out of the factory deliberately (to a point) running really rich, so they dont burn and bust warranty...and they also do not tune each engine to its own individual optimum a/f ratios.... some are worse than others - mine was bad. I assume this would apply to your 4WD as well....
Like I said, I only got the chip done, nothing else.... the mods mentioned byt he dude with the XR above (didnt reply with quote so sorry, forgot your name) sound pretty full on too - you can change exhausts fairly easily too, to get more.
My Unichip installation and two dynos cost me $1250. If you see an APS dealer wherever you are, they should be able to give you SOME idea, but they won't know more until they run it on a dyno coz each engine is different - some are more powerful than others. And I suspect it has gotta be run in FAIRLY well before they run it on a dyno but not sure about that one - basically the engine has to be as free as it can be to get accurate readings I think - the guys on here will be able to fill you in on that one....
