you should see what I can do to a stock windsor V8. 310kw from a Windsor donk, hey did a mention I did not need to bore it out either......... :) Not to mention Dodge Viper like performance from a BB WIndsor stroker block.

As for your Ill6 it may make 196kw on a EF XR6 at fly that whats we got when we b/p, cam'd, mod'd intake flues and with a twin 2.5 inch zorst/ hm headers, you probably got a bit lower than that though i think your feeling the torque inprovemt which is considerable.

Long Live the EA!

Arrrrr ! Fantastic news chuBBz !

Im actually spewing a little bit, as I have spent around the same amount on my set up, and I have no idea what my thing can do, in terms of RWKW, etc !

But that sounds awsome man !

I gotta update your car on my page then Eh !

Congrats !

Sounds great ChuBBz,

Give us a rough idea on price would you please.
It's a great feeling driving your car after a significant modification whether it be just wheels, an exhaust or more performance oriented changes. You will definately be finding more reasons to take your car out on the road!

Sweet as Chubz.. Thats fantastic news!
I'd love to go for a spin in the thing at the FF meet coming up *hint hint*

Oh, just a question, did you keep your own 2.5" cat back system, or use Jims?

Thats good to hear ChuBBz . 142rwkw is quite nice coming out of an I6.
Are you going to take it down the strip at some stage to see what you get, and then take it down the sprip again after you do the DEV5?
It doesn't matter, as long as your happy with the result .

Congrates on the mods mate, always good to get satisfaction from the mods. 142kw from an E Series Inline 6 is very very healthy indeed.

Having said that it sounds like a Dev 4 or 5 would be the go for us AU owners.
