Has anyone put one of the crow cams into their injected fou litre.On the crow website it shows testing by Herrod that it added 22 kilowats at the rear wheels to an Ef fairmont ? 22 at the wheels is quiet a bit at the flywheel. Also haw many kilowat is an Au 6 meant to have from the factory?

Hmmm I'm excited, i've got exhuast work done already (cat back only) if i add a crow cam, i'd be happy if it added say 10-15kw at the rear wheels.
**Sniffing 130+kw at the wheels quite easily**
I think subtly the AU engines have gained decent kw's even though their rating hasn't really changed since 1994. VenomXR's car makes 136kw at the rears with full Herrod exhaust setup.

Oh, just one other thing, and I know some may scoff at this.
Based on Crows formula, the breathing mods I've done, the cam, the spark plugs, the fat leads, the genies, the modified cat and the ECU and confirmed by our stop watch times, we estimate flywheel power at @190 - 200 kw.
Stage 3 Crow has made around 130+ rwkw with E.B.Latter model inlet/motor maybe better?. But make sure your timming chain tensioner etc IS in GOOD nick for the cam etc put extra load on them.. Valves hitting pistons "does" make a mess.. Cheap insurance esp with say more than 100.000 Klms on the clock...
