power from a EF

Hey,
I'm getting Extractor's and a 2.5" exhaust put on my EF Fairmont tommorow, and its getting dyno'd too.
I was wondering what power i should be expecting from my car.

Thanks

P.S. also did all EF fairmont's (non ghia) come with ABS standard?

Thanks again

Toby

Re: power from a EF

I think I would expect around a 10rwkw increase for the inline 6, which is what I approximately gained when my EF Futura received extractors, 2.5" exhuast and hi-flow cat.

1995 EF Futura - Crow stage 2 cam & adjustable gear, K&N cold air intake, AU XR intake snorkel, Advance stainless steel extractors, hi-flow cat converter, 2.5" pipe, 17" ROH RT shadow chrome mags, Pedders sports ryder suspension, DBA gold cross drilled/slotted rotors, lowered 1.5", camber kit, engine + starter immobiliser and microwave sensor security system.

Re: power from a EF

hard to guess what you will get on a dyno, it depends on the dyno and other factors, but i'd expect about 110rwkw if its in good nic :)

1995 EF II Falcon GLi: Heritage Green, 4spd Auto, AUII 17" Rims, Custom BA Front Bar, Lowered, Gas Research LPG, Clear Indicators, JVC MP3 Headunit, Phoenix Gold 6.5" Splits, Coustic 481QE Amp, Clarion 12" sub, Leather Seats, Power Window Conversion, 3.45 LSD, Pacemaker Comp Extractors, 2.5" Exhaust, Mandrel Bent Intake, High Flow Filter, Wade 1004 110 cam.

In Progress: BA XR Side Skirts, BA XR Rear bar, BA Shifter Handle.

Re: power from a EF

132rwkw? Sounds like too much for an EF with just extractors! I dont know if id trust that reading! I could be wrong tho!

yeah i did
well the 178 is actual hp
but the initial reading was 172hp at the wheels :)

and before was 152hp i think at the wheels (which sounds right for a 155kw at the fly wheels motor)
