I assure you nothing has changed in any way here......

Except maybe the heads, rocker covers, intake, and a few other little goodies :s3 :s6:

Sure looking the part AP. Good to see you got it back before xmas. Almost looks stock under the bonnet.(nothing sticking through it like Gary Meyers).

Next project??? Get a good deal on back tyres??????? hehehe

Hope it outperforms your expectations.

That looks great bud! I was driving past Herrods on Saturday (about 12:30pm) and I kept an eye out for you (or rather a red XR8 with Azzurros) but his workshop and yard seemed almost empty and it looked like the blokes were finishing up for the day. Oh well, I'll just have to wait for the Tickford Day, eh!

Hmmm nice, love the upper intake manifold. Definitly some HSV beater components in there. Does it feel like 405hp's now.

I called Herrod today, My brother might do the same to his engine around the christmas. They told me around $7500 for a start, but I'm worried how much will it need more!

No. I'm very light on the throttle still. Gimme a few more kays as this engine is worth too much to flog already.

I modified the XR8 engine cover today to make it fit with the new manifold. Involved some cutting/welding/drilling of brackets and stuff but in the end it fits alright. We'll see how it goes. If it works out I'll paint it and it should finish things off nicely.

I think Pete's extra grunt comes from better Heads and Intake than the Herrod setup
