FG Manual XR6T Ute Mods

Recommended Posts

Hi All, after buying a ute at the end of the year, oil pump gears shattered and am getting it fixed soon hopefully, now while this is getting fixed should I get aftermarket headstuds, harmonic balancer, hd timing chain and guides? from atomic or another source? do I really need half of these? running 460hp has a few mods already, just trying to future proof it, sorry if this has been asked 1000 times... 


Maybe upgrading to a different turbo in the near future, probably a 76 G2, car will only ever see 98 and doubt it will see any track either, just a nice quick street car..


also at what power would I need headstuds done?

or tailshaft and diff? how much can they handle? and what other sources could I buy these from?


any info is appreciated. Thank you

Won't need head studs on 98
Balancer is dependent on condition. My suggestion is inspect every so often.

Hd timing chain. Yes.

Guides and lower sprocket are a good investment. Plenty don't have issues, a few have nothing but trouble. OEM or atomic is good.

Tailshaft and diff are usually pretty strong, traction/abuse dependant
