This would be a good upgrade but add xcal4 with tune and you will be looking at $3500 give or take, add another 700 to get valve springs installed worst case scenario

Yes they are stronger, but still not strong enough. Probably enough for std even if there old but turn the boost up & that extra pressure will reveal any weakness. Best to budget a spring change & maybe head studs while your there?

Hi forum, new buyer of an Xr6 turbo FGX. What would be the first few modifications I should look at? I would love a nice sounding exhaust. Obviously a better air filter wouldn't go astray. Any ideas on which exhaust to get? With extractors and the catback? Should I look at the muffler delete for the time being?

Cheaper than 10 years ago that's for sure.

Good time to be getting onto it I reckon.

Asides from the cars being a bit tired, but you get that with the years on them.
