Do exactly that, take ure SWEET ass time finding one, dont rush in like i did because the car was cheap... 13,700 to be exact. Low 14's i think is highly acheivable with a manual NA XR6. You just have to get the job done properly and take time in doing it.

LOL 6k? Damn straight it would blow! Mine cut out when i revved bounced around a corner and it was making FK all torque/power. Theres no point unless you increase the bore/shorten the stroke :)

Re: Making a fast ELXR6

it should do 6k no worries, and if the head/cam/exhaust are all matched it will be making good power then as well - i dont think thats an unrealistic amount of revs.

mate i think the best thing you can do is get a 3.9 LSD, manual, very sticky tyres, big port job on the head to flow like 350hp, cam to match, exhaust to match, computer tuned to match all that, and drive it like a man posessed, and you should see at least mid 14s, but probably very low 14s.
