2.5 will make it louded maybe little faster, put a set of diff gears and a mini spool in it, if you want fun.

You will kill yourself with a mini spool if you don't know how they work, i don't recomend a mini spool for everyday driving. Goodluck parralel parking.

Get in the ute
Goodluck parralel parking.
hehe:

1) *stick nose of car where you want it*
2) *bit of brake and gas*
3) *watch out for clearance between gutter and wheel closing quickly*
4) *back off gas when you are completely parallel*

... getting out is a different story all together, though.

Start with a really good service if you just got the car...

K&N air cleaner...CIA (Cold air intake)... new 8mm leads...plugs... then start with exhausts and stuff.

wont kill your self with a mini spool, allittle common sense and ull be fine dont boot it mid courner and ull be sweet, round abouts and **** are still the same, if you can put up with shuddering and chriping of tyres get one.
they are worth about $110 for a good solid one.

block of metal with a few holes in that goes in the centre of the diff lockin the two axels together, they hop and skip around sharp turns, dont wear out good for burn outs and sliding, bad for bushes tyre wear and they arent total legal.

bigger TB (65mm standard V8 which is a direct bolt on) or get your bored to 70mm and make sure it opens 100% as per greenfoams excellent thread. good leads and plugs, full service including fuel filter. get the Holden VS SC cold air intake and K&N filter. headers and 2.5" zorst all you need for a standard engine for street use, LSD and shorter diff ratio(3.08 standard) for better take off, stay away from the spool if you drive it daily and don't wanna be replacing your rear tyres ever 3 months and an axle every six months (read: spools only good for skids and drags etc) if you wanna go a little further maybe try a set of YT high ratio roller rockers
