EB XR8 Sprint yes, it's an EB sprint

I went to NSW and found this black EB XR8 with full leather and all the fairmont stuff inside. The doortrims, electric window surround, stereo surround and auto surround are all EB GT woodgrain items.
It had a set of sprint rims on it, a genuine set of ED XR quadlights and some aftermarket bodykit. Also has the original rubber bootlid lip spoiler. The bodykit has now been removed, and I have fitted the Sprint seats now.
Next on the list of things to do is install my original engine and steering rack from the Sprint. I already did the exhaust, diff and twin thermos. The 4 speed auto has been strengthened and I have a 2,500rpm hi-stall for it to go with the new engine.
This is a couple of days after it arrived, with the blue Sprint before the swap started...

This car was for sale due to building a new house, but I convinced the boss that it wouldn't be worth selling it, so I have been given approval to continue!! :)
I'll post some more pictures as I get more things done...

My missus gave me one of those looks <_< when i mentioned to her about the difilipo headers so i'm gunna go for the paccies and high flow cats. Still not sure what is going to go after that. I'll have to check out your magna flow muffler and see how it sounds.

Good photo chop too, could you do one of the 6 into the blue one?
NO!! I never want to see that Sprint shell with a 6 in it, even as a photoshop! And don't try and use my car thread to start this argument up again... :)
We all know you're putting my brothers TE50 engine in it, and that'll be fantastic with it! :)

I bought a Vortech V2 supercharger kit and some 42lb injectors today... :D
The head unit apparently has a T-trim upgrade, and according to the Vortech website, that involves changing to a larger impeller and volute.
The kit was previously on a stock EF XR8 auto, and it ran a 13.2, which I'd be very happy with!! And with my larger heads, cam and 2,500 stall I reckon I'll get there!
I'll post some pics later...
And thanks to Jeff and Nic for not whoring out this thread... yet. ;D
