BA 4.0L Futura

Hey my Dad just got himself a BA Futura and he wanted me to find out what kind of performance chips there are out there for it, I have looked on a few sites but I cant seem to find anything.....In his previous car, a EL Falcon, he got a powerchip and he was looking for something simular, if there aren’t any chips yet is there anything else he could do, besides a new exhaust and extractors????
thx

Re: BA 4.0L Futura

Unichip have been doing great work with the BA and I'd highly recommend them.

Stay away from powerchip period.

I do agree with XTS220, wait until it losens up a little then see how you go.

Re: BA 4.0L Futura

It will have loosened up as much as it ever will after 2000k's, 10,000k's won't make any difference.
Extractors and exhaust will help a little.
