Re: Ultimate Bolt Ons

Ozzyjim, i have only done basics so far, but im looking for further ideas.
ive done so far
Batten underdrives $600
Cold Air kit BMC filter $300
Batten 80mm helix plate $240
Batten 80mm Throttle body $425 c/o

and i have noticed a substantial difference. ive done just under 3000 ks, and i will let u know what KW, and what MPH the thing does down the quarter. but im very happy, money well spent. my car is an auto.

is your car auto or manual? how many ks u clocked so far?

Re: Ultimate Bolt Ons

You missed a new one ive got. Lightened Billet flywheel, lightened clutch diaphram and clutch plate a total of 2.8kg static weight saving, Dynamically about 100kg(spinning). Has done 13rwkw but i want to do a couple more to be 100% that its a true figure.

Have you got a before and after dyno sheet? Post it if you do. That'd be an interesting one as it's probably the next mod that a lot of Boss owner will do.

Re: Ultimate Bolt Ons

Thats good if you have a manual but what can you do for auto owners. Does the flywheel fit and could it help to give more power. Just interested to know.

So let me get this straight, it's a drivetrain power gain of 13rwkw? Taking away the power that is robbed through the drivetrain by stock components?
