EB 5.0 mods

ive just bought an EB falcon V8 and im wanting to mod the beast.
its already got extractors and exhaust. ive got around 3 grand absolute max to spend, keeping in mind i cant do anything myself so it has to be done at a shop, so what mods can i do to the windsor for 3 grand including getting fitted.
i was thinking cam and heads, i dunno.

Re: EB 5.0 mods

Easy.... Heads & cam...
Or just do the heads as you wont get any change from $3000 ...
Save your $$$ then get another intake manifold, the next bottleneck

Re: EB 5.0 mods

is it auto??? if its auto then get a manual conversion for sure as they are so much quicker.... a 4spd would be half clagged to begin with... my i6 was pathetic with the auto like they all are.... as soon as I put the manual in I was being told constantly my car runs like an 8

Would people buy a commodore if it had a BTR-95le?
Would anyone be safe if the falcon had a THM700

Re: EB 5.0 mods

you'd probably get as much improvement from doing

airflow meter - $450-500 approx
65/70mm throttle body - $500
1.7 rollers - $500
underdrive pullies - $250
manifold - $1000

you should be able to fit most of these yourself...

Re: EB 5.0 mods

the t/b and maf won't do anything especially with the ho manifold. You'd need to do the manifold

I'd be inclined to do the manifold and the heads..... but it depends on how much you want to spend on heads (if you wanna go that way)

Yeah the manifold is the biggest restriction of all glowing only about 135vfm per runner. The next in line are the heads which flow around 150cfm. I too would be doing intake manifold, underdrive pulleys and probably roller rockers first, and then save up for a head and cam swap.

Re: EB 5.0 mods

I got some manifolds, throttle and maf for sale! Gotta go! Did the same thing to my car and it gave it a nice boost particuarlly at high rpm. Pity the heads are so crap though. It also lost the ashtmatic engine going to explode feeling at 5000rpm. Now revs to 5500 with no drama's

edit if you buy em install will be free youll be leavin a happy man at 5000rpm

Re: EB 5.0 mods

Free install means: drive your car too geelong, we rip your old manifolds off, instll new ones, adjust the TPS to the correct signal, ru the diagnostic tester over it to check for any error codes etc. Too easy.
