Lukey, please read..

Hey man, at the next brizzy meet.. i want to get some serious mod ideas from you. The other day i was beaten by a 1.6L corolla! I was not happy, it really shit me off! Sure he had a 2 car length start but i think a 3.9L should EASILY be able to catch up before hitting 80kph. As you know, my car is stock. All i have is a $50 round air filter slapped on too the intake. So i'll be needing ideas! I'll get ya too go for a spin in it too coz i dont think its running right either. I dont want a hevily moded donk like yours... Just something that can give an XR6 a bit of a fright! Im also wanting to keep the 4spd aswell. I really wanted a fairlane/fairmont but i think i'll keep this tank and do her up big time! Gonna get a nice body kit put on her too - not many wagons in brizzy with GT fronts on em :)

Thanx, looking forward too the meet!

Hey Brent well the first thing I recommend is manual gearbox then 3.45:1 diff gears.This is a problem beause you don't want to change either of these.The next thing to do would be to fit 2 1/2 inch exhaust and a good set of extractors.Getting cold air into the engine is the next best thing and a good quality airfilter.I'l take your pride enjoy for a spin to see how it goes in reponse.Talk to you soon.

CYA at the meet Lukey.

Re: ok..

Hmmm... how much would the exhaust and extractors set me back??? Do they really make that much difference, i mean is it really worth all the noise? I got a 21/4" exhaust put on my TX5 and i barely noticed shit!
