Well, my auto EF Falcon, XR6 exhaust, ran a 16.67 @ 83.75 mph in 38.5 degree heat. The 7 inch tyres probably helped also, but the heat would have slowed it down somewhat.

Not many mods, some of the EA 5 speeds were running low/mid 15's with only minor mods... then there was the 10 second turbo EL..... LOL.....

Cheers.......... Tim

I'd give the NL Fairlane a crack, but I don't think mother would like that too much......

What will a stock NL do anyway?

Manual EB XR6, stock except for Mock extractors and spark plugs, loud 2.5" exhaust, 16 degrees base timing, pod filter, thermofans, 50+kg stereo, running on ultimate, did a 15.505@90.12MPH at willowbank last wednesday night (5th feb)

very happy, stock new EB XR6s are supposed to do a 15.7 sec pass, mine has 135,000k on it and is much much heavier (so should be slower) due to the stereo.

next up a big cam, amybe a chip and definately NITROUS!!!!
