What The Hell Is Wrong????

Hi Guys,
Heres a bit of background with my car. Its a ED Inline 6 Auto.
Engine
AU XR6 Head Rebuilt with Bigger Exhaust and Intake Valves, JMM DEV3HL Cam, Vernier Cam Gear.
Exhaust
JMM Race Series, HI-Flow Cat, HI-Flow Muffler, 2 1/2 Inch Mandrel Bend.
CAI & Fuel
XH Snorkel, K&N Filter, Ported Throttle Body, ED XR6 Fuel Reg, BP Ultimate

NOW my 0-100kms time is around 8.4ish and other people i know like a mate of mine runs 7.5's and he has a EF Fairmont with shift kit, same exhaust setup, running a au cam, and another mate that has a EB Spak with shift kit, wade cam, pacemakkers comp and runs 7.5's also so what the hell is wrong with mine?

Re: What The Hell Is Wrong????

How are you timing these cars? Have you got a chip? Get it on a dyno and get it tuned. Then give it a few cracks down at the local strip and see what times you're running.

BTW, what's the specs of the ported throttle body?

Re: What The Hell Is Wrong????

With all those N/A mods to increase high rpm power, you'd really want to have the right diff ratio.

Re: What The Hell Is Wrong????

An AU cam WON'T go in, you'd need AU head and lifters to go with it.

BTW, your diff sucks. Get something lower for sure.

Re: What The Hell Is Wrong????

as said above an AU cam WILL NOT work in an EF head.

3.08 is shocking for decent acceleration with an auto, look at 3.7 or 3.89 and get a good tune.
