ITS HERE ITS HERE - And How will spend $

Well got the call from my dealer - THE BEAST IS HERE !!!

Brief description as ordered

1. BA Falcon XR6 NA SSS with Lux Pack, Power Pedals, Rear Air Bags, Mats, Spats, Headlight Protector, Bonett Protector and weathershield. + Interior/Exterior Protection Package + WIndow Tint

The "protection package and tint" were an added $2000!!!! -

After reading all the material on this and other forums I dicided to ditch these two options and will spend the saved $$ on some improvements.

What I would like to do
Cold Air Kit
K&N Filter
Cat Back Exhaust
Unichip
Extractors

I would anticipate about 10-15% more kws

BUT (there is always a but ) - company car --> have to keep it legal etc etc

So here it goes

Lower Grill
Scuff Plates
Boot Scuff Guard
Boot Liner
Boot Carpet
Fog Lamp Covers
Aftermarket tint ($250)
Aux Audio Socket
Pollen Filter
Dashmat
Rear Sunshade
Mobile Phone Presenter
Prestigae Plates with covers
Leather Console lid
Footlamp Illumination
Aftermarket paint protection - company requirement ($300)

Still leaves me over $850 to spend!!

You think I can get a cold air kit with filter and a catback for $850? May get a few kws

Some Pics soon after rolling off the truck

lkooks the goods, very classy in black.

as for $850, i know Falkeen put a GT style airbox/intake onto an AU XR8 for around the 300-350 mark, so perhaps you should investigate that? otherwise SS inductions make one very bloody big intake - shane3 has one (i think).

Cat back - dont be expecting major gains, but the sound will be quite noice!

Thumbs up Re: ITS HERE ITS HERE - And How will spend $

Very nice. Looks like my beast but yours is better.
With mine I want to do the alarm first (damn dodgy bastards near my work) then lower it and do the stereo. Later down the track I want to get a 2.5 catback and maybe the intake depends on what fords stance is with mods as I want to keep my warrenty.

Re: ITS HERE ITS HERE - And How will spend $

headers wont do much (if anything) on a car unless the catback isnt that restrictive, if ur going to get headers you might as well get the full exhaust...
