Yep I was after 185 flywheel kw.. (not at the wheels!!) Mid-low 15's would be really nice.
I'm getting rid of the 200SX because its just too damned expensive.
The only caryard that will let me trade down that has an XR8 wants $23,000 for a 1995 model with 110,000kms. They are giving me $41,500 for my 8 month old S15 Spec R.
If I'm paying $19,000 for this AU..I'm likely to have a few grand to spend on mods.. a cam would be cool. I don't mind if it idles lumpy, and some more topend would be great. I'm keen on going for a cam before doing the exhaust.
Here, this guy reckons he can get 170RWKw for $3500, would be more than worth your while to check it out. With that kinda grunt it should be hitting 14s easy...
We have the power for YOU.....4 litre mods...
Hello every Ford owner......
Is your XR6 or 4 litre Falcon feeling a bit Doughy, or are you sick and tired or them damn Holdens gettin you at the lights or the strip ?
WE did, so we got to doing something about it....
Jim Mock motorsport, Mildura Victoria have just completed 5 months or grueling dyno testing at their facilities. We are very proud to announce our Five stages of engine development for the 4 litre Ford engine.
The most common asked question is How much power can I get.....
Our current development on the EF to AU series brings 170 RW Kw to your vehicle. These engines are both comfortable to drive and sound the part...
The DEV 5, 170 RW Kw engine comes complete with full head mods, cam shafts, timing gears, and full 2.5 " exhaust system with newly fitted extractors and Hi Flow air filter and DYNO Testing. Cost to U is JUST $3500.00, Or to include an engine overhaul and balance is $6000...
TAKE NOTE, No Computer MODS are necessary with These engines......An added bonus.
Interested clients can call Jim or Brenden on

For A TRUE GEN 3 Beating FORD..........
1993 ED XR6 M5 (1 of 329)
Turbo on the way!!
1993 EBII Fairmont (Now wrecking, PM if you want any parts)
1988 Nissan R31 Skyline
I don't own a Ford six, however I own a nissan six and face many simular problems...
here is a starter list (not in order) for you to look into:
-headers (good type)
-Cam (oh man everyone has cams for fords!!)
-Intake (cold air, tickford box etc etc)
-XR6 or chipped computer(higher rev limit for cam, no speed limiter better mapping)
-MAKE it a manuel (auto limited top speed for reason)
-Low LSD diff (~3.45-3.7)
-Some fat low pro rubber/wheels
-Brake upgrade (pads, discs, calipers, fluid)
-Suspension (lower it 35mm)
-Removal of excess weight (spare, jack, some underbody/noise insulation, alloy crank pully)
-Body kit stuff
-Interior bits like chrome doorhandles, chrome ghia bits, leathery bits etc
My general prefence would be to pursue say a XR6 (or simular) cam, computer (xr6 or simular), Headers and a 3" exaust. If you want to go all out on a wild cam I would suggest you go on a lower something like 3.45+ diff at the same time.
However pick your cam carefully, some can be crappy, and its a expensive thing to have a crappy selection on.
I would do in order:
-Intake (cheap and quick and worthwhile)
-Extractors+Exaust (most benificial over all maybe)
-Cam and computer (pushing the last little bit and spend your time making desicion)
