Re: EL XR8 Mods
I changed my upper intake manifold, injectors, ECU, and MAF all at the same time on my EL2XR8. I had already upgraded to a 65mm throttle body a while back. Still stock heads/cam/rockers, but Genie headers and dual 2.5" exhaust. The new intake bits and ECU immediately upped power by around 8rwkW near peak, and closer to 10-15 right across the mid range. Torque kicked up quite substantially as well, no doubt helped by the upper intake and phenolic spacer.
I'm pleased with the results, but I got all the parts for a great price, and I wouldn't have done it if I had to pay retail!! Good gains but not worth it for RRP $$.
Not sure about this Ford service centre bloke, basically if the heads fit the intake, and they all flow better, then how can it not be an improvement!! :)
