V8 Performance Packages

Looking to extract more power from your BA-BF XR8?

Here at East Coast Customs, we have spent countless hours researching and developing the best performance packages to help enhance your vehicle, from a simple upgrade to a full blown monster. We have carefully designed and selected the following upgrade packages, using only the best quality parts in what we have found to be the most modular and efficient path in our pursuit of modification, in both terms of performance and budget.


Our stage 1 Package is designed for those people wanting to get more power, torque and fuel economy without sacrificing any of the creature comforts of the standard vehicle.

Our stage 1 package is a worth while step up from your generic “tune only”, with the addition of a replacement air filter for increased vehicle breathing, combined with a new set of spark plugs to ensure perfect, efficient combustion throughout the process.

We then supply (or tune your own if you already have one) a SCT XCAL3 flash unit, and proceed to tune your vehicles ecu on the dyno to maximise power, torque, and fuel efficiency whilst providing added safety margins to the factory mapping where necessary.

We can program up to 3 separate tunes into the X3 for you, which can be changed at will in a matter of minutes, as well as the ability to re-flash the vehicle back to the factory tune at any stage with zero consequences . The X3 unit also provides full data logging ability for the user, and also doubles as a full diagnostic code reader.

Our stage 1 Package includes:

  • K&N replacement high performance air filter
  • All Associated Labour
  • Supply SCT Flash XCAL X3 hand control unit
  • 3 x ECC Custom Tunes to suit the vehicle

*Please note ZF Automatic transmission tuning extra


Our stage 2 package is for customers wanting a bit more bark and a bit more bite, over and above our stage 1 package.

This package removes the factory cat back exhaust system, blessing the vehicle with a deep, crisp exhaust note all whilst increasing flow potential exponentially.

Our stage 2 Package includes:

  • Ecc Stage 1 Package
  • HURRICANE Aluminsed Mild Steel Cat back exhaust system in your choice of Twin 2.5” or Single 3.5”.
  • All associated labour


Our stage 3 package is for customers wanting a lot more bark from your XR8, over our stage 2 package.

This package removes the factory extractors and replaces them with High Flowing HURRICANE Extractors and High Performance Cat Converters to mate up to the HURRICANE cat back exhaust system, blessing the vehicle with a deep, crisp exhaust note all whilst increasing flow potential exponentially.

This stage requires the engine to be removed from the vehicle, so we also include a regas on your existing Air Condition System as it needs to be extracted from the vehicle before the engine is removed.

Our stage 3 Package includes:

  • Ecc Stage 2 Package
  • HURRICANE high performance Extractors
  • HURRICANE high performance catalyic converters
  • Air Conditioning System Regas
  • All associated labour


Our stage 4 package is for customers wanting the traditional V8 Lumpy idle and the low down torque the XR8 lacks.

This package removes the factory camshafts and replaces them with Herrod Motorsport camshafts. This blesses the vehicle with a lumpy, deep, crisp exhaust note all whilst increasing low end torque and driveability exponentially.

Our stage 4 Package includes:

  • Ecc Stage 3 Package
  • Herrod Motorsport Boss Camshafts
  • All associated labour

Michael Mitchell (GHOSTY) said this about East Coast Customs...

"I was the 2nd customer to walk in the door at East Coast Customs many years ago when they first opened for business. Since then they have moved to a bigger and better premise as their business has grown to be hugely successful due to awesome service and quality of work. They have worked on my 180sx, sil80 and s1480, seen it through CA18, RB20 and RB25 conversions, and now my S15 which is more dedicated race car than street car. The addition of the dyno brings the shop almost to completion as far as a one-stop-shop goes. Things don't always go to plan such is the nature of modifying cars, but Rob, Ben and the ECC team are always there to fix it and provide expert advice!..."
