mad Gutless Au,help!

Hey people first post on what looks to be a pretty dam good site(pity took me so long to find it)
Ok here is the deal i have a AU2 ute 6 banger auto and it is as gutless as.Got blown away by a au wagon from the lights yesterday and the ute was empty!I had a xh ute before the au,ford reacon the au is putting out 10 kilowatts more,crap!

So anyone know the best way of getting more power out of these motors?Looked at a unichip and they said 2kw at the back wheels.So im thinking maybe bigger cam or head work.Anyideas?

Thanks in adv

Bassic tune incase you have crook leads or plugs,blocked cat etc.
Do a search, its under new thread at the top of your post.
Induction,aircleaner,Exhaust.Cams are quite easy to change on them..Compared to V8..

I think you will find that the xh ute is about 1480kg while the au is about 1635kg. I also did drive a xh and have driven an auII on lpg. You can really tell the difference between the 2.

Extractors, 2.5" sports exhaust and high flow cat would be a start to help it breath better. Air cleaner element, T-series intake. Cam and chip also help increase the power alot. Manual gearbox would also make a big difference.
BOSS 5.4lt Quad cam V8 is mine
MkI BA XR8 with SS inductions, BMC air filter, Herrods Air Injection, Pacemaker extractors and cats back exhaust.
