Recommendation required from members who have modded their BA XR8s....

I currently have a BA XR8 Ute MKI manual with full exhaust and air intake. I'm thinking of the next mod. What would people recommend as the best "bang for the buck" mod? Should I bother dicking around with the spacers, TBs, under drivers or should i go straight to the "edit/flasher"? I've heard all the raves about the edit, but has anyone had bad or indifferent experiences with the edit/flasher?

Any feedback would be appreciated before i fork out the $$$$$$$......


People say money can't buy you happiness.... I say they just don't know where to shop.

Edit would easliy make the biggest difference to your current setup, with exhaust and CAI already done, you need the edit to fully unlock the potential.
Here is an example of the BA Edit at work :

I don't even have an XR8 and I can safely say go the edit!! From what I've read on here from members who have done it, there is absolutely nothing that matches it bang for buck.
Have a custom tune put into your flasher and hold on....

If you are running standard brakes i'd be upgrading them first off. They are pretty ordinary but i'm much happier with my new slotted rotors and bendix ultimates pads.

True, but it came from a Ford Forum.
