Re: capibility of the 5L
I tend to not realy agree that the AU is best!!!
Reason..You are paying big $$$ for them..Depends on budget?
To get anywhere near 200+ rwkw you have to change heads to aftermarket or Fords SVT [even on AU] inlet, throttle body, cam and maf..The TE50's run approx 240 rwkw with good exhausts..
The block and rotating assembly is the same from E.B to AUlll..
But if you are after mild tweeks yes 180 rwkw is about it with std Ford induction.Tlll's excluded...
To run 14's ?? The Sprints with good tyres run mid 14's and they are close enough to 200fwkw.. 3:45 ratio helps...
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
