AU 5 Litre Donk prospective....
OK guys, just gathering ideas. **will say nothing at the moment**
The engine in question is the 175kw basic falcon/fairmont AU V8 how easy is it to unleash more power? My knowledge isn't too great about V8's at the moment.
I know from 175kw to 185kw Tickford put a free flow exhaust and computer tweaks.
I'm wondering where would i go beyond that, or is it a waste of time. Keeping in mind my current EF puts out a healthy dose of power like over 115kw at the wheels. Will this V8/Auto combo be much more punchier than my Manual 6.
What heads does the 175kw have and if i say want to build it to 200kw is it achievable with a relatively cheap budget. Do i have to start mucking around with GT40P heads nad upper and lower intake manifolds.
To sum it up i don't want to go backwards in power from what i have now.
Thanks in Advanced...
