Re: After Market 290 Vs 285

I think I would rather talk about what's at the rear's and I wouldn't count on the Gen III to be that far behind they do respond well to some mod's.

AU II XR8
Herrod mod's,mmmn.
XW Wagon 221-2V,
Laser a maser.

Re: After Market 290 Vs 285

Being Optimistic I get....
290 + full exhaust(30ish) + cold air induction & performance air filter (15ish) = 335kw (flywheel).

Herrod claim 15-20rwkw from full exhaust (est.30kw flywheel) and from what I have read cold air induction & performance air filter may give you another 10rwkw (15 kw flywheel).

Maybe I have not worked this out correctly, please feel free to educate me further master..lol

To be honest, KW's are great but what many of us want is speed and unfortunately the 285 Clubbie has this regardless of what the figures say. Needless to say I would still have the GT for its overall performance, looks and well...its a FORD GT.

BTW, Thanks for the POSITIVE thread.

Design for every step. www.cdaa.com.au

WASP GT - Mk2 6 speed + Herrod =
