Car looks great with that background. Getting very good fuel figures too. I get about 14-16/100 in my V6 without getting the rev counter over 4000 ever

mate nice car u got there, my parents have had one for about 4-5 years now and its great...definitely get a decent chip upgrade...it should be made law to upgrade the chip lol, we drove to summernats with a full load and did 14-15 litres/100km...while there we bought a PWR chip and fitted it, on the drive home we had the same gear in the boot plus some sets of speakers and general nats stuff and we got 11-12 litres/100km.

heaps snappy gear shift too...made a world of difference.

its tuned by the company PWR, it was the proper replacement chip that sits in the engine bay under the cover behind the air box. i suppose its the engine management chip.

Im getting good fuel figures too. The last 2 days have been spent in peak hour and im getting 13.8/100 which is better than i thought. The fuel gauge is pretty ratty though. 0kms to empty = 15lt in the tank

id just about kill for figures like that atm lol.
