Re: bang for bucks

If its an E series get AUGHIA's parts and you'll be much happier. If it's AU a cam would go well.

Re: bang for bucks

If it's an ef1 i'd definetly go heads and inlet cam while your at it would only cost about 6-700 more and then you'll be stomping along. Those e7 and that nasty manifold wont do much for your cause even with a cam.

Re: bang for bucks

im on the gold coast, you might be right i may just upgrade the heads ive been spending a little to much and went over board with my suspension which has limited my engine funds, do you rekan i should just get heads alone or with cam? what else would be needed if i went with cam?
