So decision time for the first real upgrades.  I had MT do the following a few weeks back in readiness for when I do the IC and turbo back exhaust upgrades which will be in a few weeks time:

 

Pre Dyno Inspection 1.00
Fit supplied injectors 1.00
WALBRO 460LPH INTANK FUEL PUMP 1.00
ZF SERVICE 1.00
UPGRADED BILLET OIL PUMP GEARS 1.00
• Bottom End Gasket kit
Timing Chain Kit HD 1.00
CROW CAM RACING VALVE SPRINGS FITTED 1.00
ROCKER COVER GASKET SET BARRA 1.00
WALBRO 460LPH INTANK FUEL PUMP 1.00
Cam Shafts 1.00
GENUINE SPARK PLUGS 1.00
VCT Connector 2.00
Engine Mount 4.0l Barra fitted 2.00
 

I'm kicking myself a little as I called up mid Monday morning to ask about fitting the oil pump backing plate too but they were too efficient and had already done everything else.  I was only going to do it for extra piece of mind, I don't expect to go over 450KW's on 98 although as a servo with e85 has opened up less than 5 minutes away, I will get an e85 tune too at some stage.

 

Apart from some cylinder 4 & 5 misfires that the injectors have fixed, the car is going strong at 335,000, so onto the next two things.

 

IC wise I'm going the Plazmaman stage 3 kit https://plazmaman.com/product/fg-stage-3-intercooler-kit-1000hp/

 

But the hard decision is the exhaust, looking at options, the X-Force 4" has the runs on the board but the Ultrex 4" is cheaper and is also getting some good feedback.

 

Are there any negatives with the Ultrex?

 

I'd like to see if I can get a single tip the same as the OEM for the sleeper look, there's plenty of SS Commondore's and HSV's around here I could have fun victimising, along with plenty of dual tip Turbo's.

Any exhaust shop can change your exhaust tip on any exhaust you buy :) I'm a fan of the stock exhaust tip, too, as it leaves your car in "sleeper" territory unless you have a big shiny FMIC haha
