more power

Just gotmy EB back off the dyno and was disappointed, only 120rwk on petrol, and 100rwk on gas. Considering my mates EB XR6 with cat back 2 1/2 system made 116rwk im disappointed
wat can i do for more power, so far it only has a cam and adjustable timing gear, with race series extractors, hi-flow cat and 2 1/2 system
Whats headwork worth? Any Recommendations? the head on it is a brand new reconditioned head from hunters so im wary to toss money at it yet.

Re: more power

ok in english, you need to run straight BP ultimate and get rid of the gas system.

or you could get a larger mixer (so its not a restriction) and run straight petrol - its trying to have your car tuned for both fuels that is killing its performance.

you say you have 'race' series extractors - pacemaker or JMM? either ones are very good.

OED666 (ED futura) made 137rwkw with an XR6 cam, manual, BP ultimate+extra timing advance and a 3.9 diff - on a motor with 220,000km on it...since then we have fitted a reground cam and pacemaker race series extractors and its done a 14.7 second quarter (no dyno figures yet though)

decide which fuel you are going ot use and tune for that.
