t3 tE50 so much torque how

ive seen about 30 different mobs who offer 5.6L crate engines from the states where they all offer decent power in excess of 450hp they all lack the torque of the aussie built 5.6L how did tickford get 500nm of torque and these other motors are only making 400nm, i know its not only high power that makes a good motor torque is very important to.

Re: t3 tE50 so much torque how

They are making power and loosing some torque in the prossess.. Our fuel is slightly better imo...Cal. esp..
Add a blower or turbo and you'll find 400 nm is nothing !!!!

Re: t3 tE50 so much torque how

Are you sure they only make 400NM?? Converting from ft/lb's torque to NM is different to Bhp to Kw. My car makes almost 400Nm torque, and it's stock.

Otherwise you can get the motor changed, or have one built to your specs.

Re: t3 tE50 so much torque how

im sure you'll find the camshaft profile heaps different.

The 5.6L intake manifold was aussie designed for that application also

I was thinking this, are you sure it's not ft/lb's you're reading?
