Re: Nc V8
I have the equivilant model LTD, almost identical.
is it on gas?
they put out 165kw at the fly from the factory, my LTD put out 121rwkw running pretty damn rich, so theres more there (mine has exhaust and extractors).
PLENTY of insurance friendly mods but most arnt real cheap. all of this stuff you can take from an AU v8 so its all genuine ford parts, i wouldnt bother telling insurance company but thats up to you. the intake is severly restrictive, so anything you can do to improve flow will help. heres a little list of usual mods..
Exhaust.. not sure, i guess around $500?
Extractors $400+ new
bigger maf (thats the air flow meter on the intake) around $200
bigger throttle body around $200-300
better manifold $700+
better heads 1250+
bigger injectors around $500
despite common folklore, your v8 is identical to one in an XR8.
1992 DC LTD 5.0
