Thumbs up bang for your buck.

Aiggggggghhhhhh!!!

Trying to convince a mate of mine which are the best goodies to fit to his EA II cfi auto unit. He is no millionaire, so i suggested the following...

1. Extractors- HM or Pacemaker?
2. Exhaust- 2.5/ 2 3/4 or 3 inch?
3. Manual Tranny- always helps when the tranny is up to the motors task, so to speak.
4. Cam- crow cam , anyone know the results?
5. Blueprint OHC goodies....- for a bit more poke.
6. EFI update- problem getting all the parts in good nic + new air filter, cone type.
7. Some mags- I only said 15" as their more than enough.
8. Better suspension setup- helps handling....
9. Powerchip ?- dunno if its worth it
10. Supercharger- premuims will go through the roof!

I recommended him a 2 3/4 zorst (who need 3 inch?) and some pacemaker headers ? Wonder if it makes a big difference, well it should i wreckon anywhere from 4-6 kw gain and top end power will increase. I got both the headers/zorst from a mate for 500 which is a bargain I must say, fitted as well. Wonder any other ideas to unleash the OHC beast?

I'd say you've covered everything - the manual would probably make the biggest difference though.

My opinion on the matter.
Best results with the least $$$

- Manual conversion (Best by far)
- MPI conversion. (Extra 19kW & 24Nm Torque)
- Diff change.

Oh, did I mention that I could sell you almost everything needed to do a MPI conversion for around $100? *hint* *hint*

Brent, if you lived near me, I could probably find ya one for around $650 complete, but it's a little hard with you being soo far away.
