500rwp na Ba mk1 5spd falcon hows that

I have recently seen the dyno sheets for the new cams from herrods web site getting 275kws @ the wheels I think this is a great mod IMHO if you flow your standard heads for another 15% and then add a stroker kit if there is one available(please tell me if there is)for another 15% it should come to about 500rwp with out a SC wich costs 15k to 20k fitted here in little old nz where as the na option should cost about 7k fitted and tuned any one else think this is a good idea?

The 5.4 can't be stroked because it doesn't have any extra clearance for a longer stroked crank, not that you would want the stroke to be any longer than it already is. The solution for increased capacity is larger bores, and there is a Sean Hyland Motorsport block available that can take capacity out to 6 litres.

Re: 500rwp na Ba mk1 5spd falcon hows that

anyone seen a big bore block fitted to a BA? IMO ford should be using the 5.0 (Bored) version instead of the stroked 5.4 version of the 4.6. Who know's they may just get that very thing, as the mustang cobra has switched from 290kw 5.4 to 330kw 5.0 (which is apparently easy to tune to 373kw street legal, and pushes 500+ supercharged). Maybe ford Aus will follow the trend? or mabe a borerd 5.4 (ie 6.0 as previously mentioned). This would give the competition a real headache, and demonstrate how important technology is (comparing to the 6.0 ls2).

Mr ford why doubt it they are getting 300kws out of BA GTs with new cams,80tb,cai and tuning I would like to think after having the heads worked on you will get another 15%to25% and a few more little bolt ons you should get close.
