More Mods for the XR8 ute

I am about to do some more mods to the Ute.
SS cold air induction and a TSI module.
Fit a set of larger injectors as well.
I have already fitted a full exhaust system, extractors and cats, 3inch system , helix spacer. and lowered suspension. I will do the chip and cold air then do a dyno run, then fit the injectors and do another run to judge if the injectors are worth the cost. Will keep you all posted.

Re: More Mods for the XR8 ute

If the standard injectors can supply enough fuel replacing them is a waste of time and money, they will not give you any extra power. Injectors only need to be changed if they cannot supply enough fuel for the required power level.

What does the 3 inch system sound like?

Re: More Mods for the XR8 ute

XRFPVV8,
I have the TSI module fitted to my GTP, cost is about $2000.00 fitted and programed and dyno runs. The reason for fitting the injectors is so we can set the module for maxium fuel flow. If ti increases the KW then they stay, if not they go. Will be a good experiment though. I have not yet run a quarter mile it is not my scene. lol. Mayeb the bpys in melbourne pulling sub 13's might like to try.

True point. With the TSI module mapping it showed a need for more fuel flow. This is purely an experiment to see if larger injectors will help with the fuel flow. A dyno run will be done before and after to see. As i said if it doesn't increase power then they will go.

hi GTP193, you do this purely for KW gain for a Dyno, no other reason...

No I take both the GTP and Ute to wakefield several times a year for a play.
A closed track day with some mates is a great day. I have not yet tried a quarter mile day. Maybe in the future who know's.
