We can hook you up with the Xtreme XR8 package
high flow cats
Changeover diff
converter
underdrive pulleys
helix
Cold air intake

and custom tune.

You will need an aftermarket DOT radial drag type tyre to launch the car. XR8 sedan will run 12.7-12.9 @ 109ish depending upon the track, fuel economy will remain unchanged, converter is surprisingly driveable.

PM simon for further details.

What times are you getting now ? With just those mods I would have thought you'd be there already.

quickest you will see with standard diff gears and converter will be 13.4 at this stage, as the 1st gear in the auto is a 2.3:1 with a 3.46 final drive.

4.10 in an auto xr8 will still give you a "taller" first gear than a MKII 6 speed!

Why do i want a taller first gear? I thought i needed a shorter one? Anyway, i got cash for a tune and ill have to start saving for the gears.

What he's saying Jim is the auto XR8's with 4:1 gears 1st gear will still be taller than the 6 speed with std 3:46 gears, I think thats what he's trying to say. From memory the 1st gear in the 6 speed is alot lower than the auto cant rember the exact ratio.

Re: whats needed for high 12's?

Yes i think your right:) Ive decided to wait till the sydney trip to get my tune (possibly diff gears). I can get a tune for $400 from a guy in sydney but id rather one of the extreme guy's as they get the results.
