Ok, I had an original ED XR8 Sprint, but the shell for that car was damaged in an accident before I bought it. (side impact, front impact) The shell was repaired, but over time the repairs became more noticeable to me, and so I decided it was time for a new shell.

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...

Hmm I do like those plates, my ears pricked up when you were thinking of selling yours and you were thinking of doing doing a deal for the plates. Would suit mine very nicely...
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.

On the stock 165kw engine the exhaust sounds good... But once the Sprint engine is back in the car, it sounds AWESOME!!! :) I had guy in a VZ SS ute try and drag me while the blue Sprint was still running, I was slighty pulling away from him, nothing much in it though, but when we got to the lights, he put down his window and said "man, that thing sounds awesome! I couldn't even hear my car over that!!" So, it must sound alright if he compliments me after not being able to beat me... :)

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! :)

Yeah get it going! that car has already spent far too long in my shed not running! It took me about 2 years to get it all done and running again when I got the paint and engine done... Don't take that long! That's why I'm doing this black one while it's still running... :)

Ok, now I have some updates to add...

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
