XE Vs VL

i got an XE and my mate got a VL...
he keeps on sayin his car is faster, which it is in a race, but he has got 3.5 gears, in his...
how can i quickly cheaply add more rwkw to stop his sayin that a holden is betta than a ford, and for him to start respecting my car?

also 2 more things...
1 when the auto is cold, will it show that its got more fluid than when its hot? after i warm it up, therei s nothing on the dipstick, but if the car is cold, its overfull?????

2 where do i start looking for a rev limiter? i wanna limit it to 5000.. 200 above redline....

Re: XE Vs VL

your trannys low... to check the oil they should be warm, engine running, left in park... this should give u an accurate reading to the level of oil... hope it helps

Re: XE Vs VL

XE's have no limiter, you can rev them till they blow if you want.

Re: XE Vs VL

Unless you got efi on your xe rev limiting will be hard, it's usually done by fuel/ ignition cuts.

Re: XE Vs VL

You can get rev limiters that cut ignition. The phase falcons had them which people removed.

Re: XE Vs VL

i have a vl. vl's are slow. if you want cheap mods.. do the usual shit like build yaself a cold air intake. new gears for the xe shouldnt be too expensive, try getting yourself like 3.9's or 4.11's or something like that which is near the 4's. maybe even an lsd unit from a fairmont? alot of people will say not to do this because it takes off the topend speed, but then again, how often do you go topspeed?

you could probably pick up a stall converter relatively cheaply as well, try 2500 or so.

good luck with the race :D

Re: XE Vs VL

Put in a manual, LSD, Extractors, exhaust, and make sure the motor is tuned, and you should beat him no worries.

If you want more, as suggested above, three numbers 3 5 1....
