I own an 89 EA falcon multipoint 5 speed, I was timing 0-100 times and was fairly dissapointed, the first time I got 8.9, second time was about 9 seconds, am I doing this right or not? I can beat vl's and vs's and my friends got a skyline R32 turbo and I can beat that to about 80 or so then he slowly passes me and keeps on pulling, and ages ago I just kept up with a AU fairmont VCT off the lights. My car has a 3.9 bored out to 4l, EF pistons, shaved head, cam, ballanced, extractors, 2 and a half inch exhaust all the way, hi flow cat moved back about 9 inches and a K&N panel filter. It doesn't go too bad but I was expecting the 0-100 time to be around the 7 to 7.5 or so, and quater mile time in around flat 15's, it has 128kw at the rear wheels with standard diff and that.
Has anyone spoke to Mick Webb? He is in melbourne and deals in SVO, he's sposed to be really good, he was the one that put a high flow cat on and moved it back about 9inches.
So I was wondering if there are any mods that garantee more power that works well with the eingine without spending heaps. Or would the best thing be to put a new engine out of the AU that would go just as good, I dont really want to have forced induction, but I was thinking a 4l and work that engine properly, basically how much would it cost to make the engine capable of mid 14's without the unreliability? I know its hard to say but just roughly. Or anything to do to my engine that makes a big difference, either way it just feels it needs a bit more pull, specially up hills cause in 3rd the speedo just moves and thats doing about 3000.
Thanks for anybody's help..
