Ok guys, asking for a few kW predictions!
My EF Ghia had an engine rebuild about 40,000km ago. Basically standard but with a balance, ChipTorque modded ECU and mild Crane cam, type unknown. It has the standard 2.5 inch exhaust with a turbo main muffler and the rear resonator removed. All induction is standard too. It currently dynos at 116-7 rwkW, with a nice flat torque curve. I'm guessing that this translates to around 170-180 kW at the flywheel?
I'd like some educated guesses as to how much power I realistically gain with exhaust/intake mods. I don't want to open up the motor again, bolt on gains only now! It is really starting to pull hard now despite the TALL Ghia diff ratio and I feel it has a fair bit more power hidden away!
What do you guys think? Let the games begin.

EF Fairmont Ghia, Bordeaux Purple, 5.0 Windsor, Crane cam, ChipTorque modded ECU, full XR bodykit, 16 inch XR8 alloys, 2.5 inch dropped Tickford suspension, full grey leather trim with chrome, woodgrain and lots of lights, climate control, ABS, Premium sound, trip computer, power everything
I can't get enough of this!
