OK this is a Bog standard K plate XR4X4 2.9 V6 EFI i just bought yesterday for 500 quid off some old geezer from wales.
Its done 96,000 miles with all the old mots n stuff to proove.
First thing i gotta sort out are the bushes on the gear selector cos the gearsticks all over the place! Apart from that its spot on and drives like a dream.
As its standard (its even got the original stereo) i`ve got plenty to play with and apart from the bushes i don`t know where to start???
Anyone got any performance tips for me as its only 160 BHP @ the moment and i want to start on engine mods first?
if anyones got any performance parts they wanna sell for this i may be interested so send me a message.
Also after leather interiour coz the drivers seats got a rip in it.
I took a gamble on buying this car as i did`nt even goto view it. The guy delivered it for me from north wales on the basis of it being sold. I think i done alright on that gamble as its clearly been looked after.
But now its time to awaken the beast to its full potential! lol (i carn`t afford a cossie).



In not bad nick!



That bonnets gotta be sorted!



Side (notice the slight wheelarch rust! typical!)



Me back end, lol



And standard engine frown

just put tupac onto another xr4i.

Cheers Al, sort you out Fri mate, nice motor you got there happy

Its tidy but not immaculate, got a bit of rust on the arches & theres a dent in offside sill where a jack must`ve slipped. Tidier than i expected though so its a bonus smile

Yeah, i know Mike & Dave.

Filter. zorst . chip . cams.

Bets bet it a company called topboss they know alot about the colonge engine.

BEST ENGINE TO GET AND TUNE.

Click me

Its a veryhard engine to tune 200bhp will cost alot. but can be done and the engines are VERY STRONG water pupms are a bit crap and like mine the big end shells go after a while but thats all really.

Get some alloys on it and if you hear of another one getting broken let us know need the lsd off it.
