While many (most?) XT or XT6 owners would consider it â€œblasphemousâ€ to spoil the carâ€™s unique original lines, you certainly could install a ground effects kit if you wanted to. The only kit ever mass produced was by Kaminari, and while not in production may still be available with enough searching. Yet another possiblility is to modify a kit intended for a Honda Prelude from 1988 - â€˜91 (interestingly the same years of production for the XT6). The Prelude has very similar dimensions and a similar layout so a modified kit might be able to be installed by a competent professional.
At the time of this writing (June 2007) XT6.net discussion board member â€œX35â€³ (or Steve, as we know him) is currently fabricating a set of XT / XT6 body kits based on the Kaminari design. Further information on specs and pricing can be found in the XT6.net discussion forums - there you can also post questions regarding the kit.
It is worth noting that an â€œaerodynamicsâ€ package might actually adversely affect Subaruâ€™s extremely slippery aerodynamics which yield a 0.29 coefficient of drag. While it is most likely that adding ground effects would be for appearance purposes only, it is also worth noting that the XT and XT6 are easily head turning designs unto themselves.
