V8 Performance Packages

Looking to extract more power from your FG 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

Troy Tesolin said this about East Coast Customs...

"I own a holden statesman V8 series II sedan and have been taking it to a genuine holden dealership for its servicing for about 4 years now. Approx. 2 years ago...I picked my car up after a service and they, much to my utter disgust and dissapointment, altered the timing to increase its' so called performance. From the time I drove it out there car yard.....my machine was never the same againg....idling rough, stuttering, choking and was literally running like you were literally driving it over a cattle grid.. To this end, I took the car back on about 5 occasions and they continuously modified / changed the timing...but to no avail...the car was very sick !! I decided to take things into my own hands and came across this great business called ECC - at Northgate....I told the manager, Ryan the history of the car and the current status with respect to its performance and what it was doing....I gave him the service records and a folder of written information by myself that he found very useful. Today....my car literally runs like a V8 sewing machine....it is so very very very smooth and Ryan is the BEST operator that I have ever had the joy of dealing with....His personality, knowledge and desire to achieve the BEST outcome for his customer consumes him....and I for one, am just so grateful that I came cross ECC on the internet. Well done mate...you and your team really know your stuff !!!!! I am now using ECC for all my servicing in the future...."
