Performance upgrades on BA sohc v8

Can someone help me out here, iam chasing some figures on kw and torque of a stock ba xt manual sohc V8 and what the apx figures would be after some performance upgrades.
I now have a kn air filter with the extra snorkel in the air box, helix spacer, twin 2.5" manta exhaust,pacemaker extractors.
Next step is a custom tune, i have e-mail three tuners but none can give me any apx figures, they just say 3v improves will with a edit.
Has anyone already done these upgrades and can help me out with some figures.

I still miss my EX
but my aim is getting better

Re: Performance upgrades on BA sohc v8

i saw a bog stocker at croydon racing on the dyno a few years back and it made 183kw at the wheels. i'll allways remember that cause right after that thay dynoed a new hsv r8 with 7500klm on it and it only made 173kw. the guy was shattered people making coments and laughing saying did you stick that 265kw badge on the boot? it sounds about right i've seen au220kw make between 173kw & 186kw my au1xr8 makes 178kw (it's had work done) and i've gone neck to neck with 220's in a few runs. anyway theres a starting figure for you. rgds.

Re: Performance upgrades on BA sohc v8

My son has a 220 manual BA with all the stuff you have & Spiro is expecting to gain about 25 to 30 rwkw with a custom tune with flasher. So 210 to 215 rwkw will be a snack, with a huge jump in torque. Then you can go HSV hunting!!!
