Re: ehat do i do now

depends how much u wanna spend. how much power do u want?

if youve got around $8000 to spend on the engine, get it turbo'ed and youll have at least 200rwkw. If you do a lot of research and learn about complete turbo systems/conversions you could do it yourself from $4500+ buying parts (mainly turbo) from the US as youll save heaps.

Other than that JMM have some pretty good gear and so they should from the amount of R&D they have done.

you've got the right idea here mate. lowering increases handling so much. and with an AU (which was designed/masacred by a woman) which sits so high to begin with, it'll be normal height after.

Re: ehat do i do now

Im a mechanic as well champ First thing u want to do is extractors and 2.5 inch exhaust with a single mufler and a cam, u will notice heaps with these 2 mods, u have an auto im guessing so stage 2 crow or wade 1004 would be the highest u could go cos for stage 3 stuff u need better valve springs and the head needs to come off, when it comes off u should port it out whiles its off, also with stage 3 stuff u will need a stally if its an auto. Get the tickford air intake (front snorkle) as it is much bigger, u can get this from ford, u should get a K&N air filter with it as well. I have one on my mums EL futura. Thats pretty good for a start

Re: ehat do i do now

think about all the time and money you could spend on cams and headwork then throw it out the window and just bite the bullet and buy a blower kit - It might seem like a big outlay but u will save in the long run and u will have a very fast falcon

Re: ehat do i do now

Im pretty sure that you can get 200rwk out of a dev kit - and thats safer than turbo. And if down the track you want to turbo put it on top of this and go psycho!!! But id probably buy another motor to put the turbo with so that you dont ruin any of your dev gear when the motor self destructs. People have different opinions, but my thoughts -It would be more of a sleeper if it didn't have a turbo; everybody can hear it and expect it to cane.
