250 RWKW From AU II

g'day guys,

im new to the forum, admitedly im a holden man, however the purchase of an au II auto ute has prompted me here in search for answers. dont worry about the holden bit, for being a 6 ute it drives better then the old girls vx ss, well i think so anyway, heaps smoother, better gearbox but anyway thats getting a little off topic. as ive been involved with a few modded ls1's (dont flame me they are an ok donk) however being new to the ford scene, how easy/hard is it to pul 220-250 rwkw from the inline 6 ? i have seen a fwe earlier model fords runnin around with 400 odd rwkw from it, running high amounts of boost with large engine builds, but i was wondering if that sort of power is out of the question for a daily driver and how much money.time it woudl take to get it there. i know capa have a supercharger kit that pushes it to around 230-240 fly wheel kw, but really... the idea of beating a few 8's in my six appeals to me, not just beign able to sit beside them.

well sorry for the long post but i hope you guys can help me out
cheers

Re: 250 RWKW From AU II

yeah i do have a budget, 5-6g, however this could sway a few more grand if i can convince the mrs also, does the auto bos take well to getting near on doulbe the standard power ? it may also come down to THE LINE, everyone knows this line, its the line where power output is getting to the stage that when you want a little more, but its going to cost ALOT more...ie, you have 200 rwkw and it cost u 6000 to get there.. now u want more, but the box has to be done before u do, then the fuel system has to be replaced etc etc, if anyone sorta knows of what im talkin bout can u tell me where it lies in the au falcon, ie, 180rwkw for 5000, 220 for 10000, obviously i would only go the 180 sorta measure... sorry if that made absolutely no sense!!

Whatever you do don't ask Laminge, my choice would be one of the CAPA blowers.

Re: 250 RWKW From AU II

It all depends on how much you are capable of doing yourself.
As noted above by 'Laminge', there are several people who can help you achieve your goal, and achieveable it is.

As you rightly point out, the laws of diminishing returns sets in after a certain point, but 240rwkw, should be attainable for a reasonable amount of dollars.

You will most certainly need to force feed it, whether that be a supercharger or turbo, makes little difference.
NA the I6 can reach over 170rwkw without too much bother, but much over that and you may end up with a cranky engine. This can be achieved for around 5k, or less if you do things yourself.

Forced, the sky is the limit really, but I would think a practical street limit is 250-260rwkw or so.
10k should cover that IMO, and you would likely be able to do it for a lot less if you are good with your hands.

Rick.

Re: 250 RWKW From AU II

spend $2.5k to get 200rwhp NA
then $2.5k to get 100rwhp shot of n2o, bigger injectors, bigger fuel pump
and $1k to get 3.9 Lsd diff and trans cooler

220rwkw for $6k
my prices are a rough guess but that will let you kill v8s

remember you cant use the n2o on public roads

good luck,
Con

Re: 250 RWKW From AU II

I will have the potential for 300+rwkw on my EB for $7500. Although I only want 180-200rwkw initially to see how things will hold up.

So it can be done especially as the AU engines are stronger.

Buy a decent turbo, then get an intercooler and manifold cheaply.
Then get someone else to pipe it all up and sort out your computer and fuel system and you will be sweet. You may need your trans done to cope with the extra power. I am yet to see how mine will go.

cause it would cost a fortune!

so far my whole project has cost around 10k,and am hoping to get 180-200 & 14s flat from a stock block/ 8psi/ no cooler in a few weeks ,then go for the 250rwkw mark after it shits itself by adding cooler ,rebuild and 10psi

250@wheels can be done just wait for the right gear to pop up! doing alot yourself helps
