Mate, have a look at the dev kits on offer from Jim Mock, http://www.jimmockmotorsport.com.au. Pretty much anywhere can do the kind of work you want if you know what your actually after.

Re: Engine upgrades for ford six cylinders

Re: Engine upgrades for ford six cylinders

Depends what you want to do and how much you want to spend.

If you want to spend say 1000 dollars, your best options would be either 5 speed conversion or extractors and an exhaust.

For cheap mods (I've mostly only done cheap ones), thermofans are a good start. A different cam is useless without extractos and exhaust. A BBM manifold, while good for daily driving, doesn't do anything for top end power.

Re: Engine upgrades for ford six cylinders

don't go jim mock.. 2 grand for an exhaust, cam and filter is bullshit.

source the parts from different areas it would be much cheaper.... ****, probably more powerful too.

Aren't my 'reject' parts good enough for you, Kerry?
