  • Dead End....Ideas needed

    Hi Guys,

    I would like to do some mods performance wise to my VXR. The only thing i have currently done is lowered it on DAp R's. Can anyone recommend what to do next as it is completely standard? Stage 1 maybe?

    I have no idea about this sort of thing so ideas would be good.

    Thanks in advance.

            Get a bluefin and Forge and youll invalidate the Courts warranty on the exhaust and engine...

                Ye i think a stage 1 remap and a panel filter be good. Can i give you some advice that if you decide to do this, take the time to go too the tuner and get it set up properly rather than these plug and play things.

                    Thanks guys, I already have a panel filter. Dont see much difference apart form slight whoosh, lol.

                    Tempted by stage 1 to be honest. I want a louder noise though too, not too loud but just a nice grumble. can I do anything to my standard exhaust to get this?

                      If you have a standard exhaust the easiest way of getting more grumble is to fit a remus Thats if your worried about warranty...

                      If your not and your looking at remap later along the line then choose your tuner and get their full exhaust system; this will then let you go straight to stage 2 when you get the tuning bug... lol
