What the best/cheppes way to get more RWKW??

What the best/cheppes way to get more RWKW??

I have a 88 Falcon MPFI with a T5, there has been no mod's to it as yet. I have a pod filter and am making a custom air induction for it at the moment, using the AU tickford snorkel...

I was think of getting a 4L tickford out of an EF or EL, but would it b worth it, or should I just stick with the 3.9L??

You could change your air intake & exhaust but to get real power you'll need to rebuild the engine, or buy a newer model eg EF with 157kw.

Check the workshop manuals, the high output [xr6]motor generaly have more compression and higher lift cam, higher quality valve springs pluss some minor porting, higher fuel presure.Lower final drive also....
A 5 % better quality performance wise here and there overall adds up to a good package in the end...

Why is it that people always want the best....at a cheap price?
If you want cheap..then it wont be the best. If you want the best then you will have to spend more for quality!

Try modifying your intake setup for a start then the exhaust..thats always the starting point.

save up 5k get a CAPA 9 psi blower kit and you will love it.

you wont have to bother with porting and cams and stuff unles you really want to.

and your car will kill even 'firmly' worked falcons and commos as well...

Turbo setups are about $5K as well - good for around 160rwkw or thereabouts...check out TSA :

http://www.gasresearchpc.com.au/html...australia.html

I'm going down to Gas Research hopefully this Saturday morning to go over a few things...I know i'm going to be tempted by the turbo...but hey both super / turbo have their benefits - just depends on your application IMHO. Super is good for 'on tap' power ie around town, and turbo is good for more open roads where the lag is not so much an issue. Aw well, my 2c - but hey, I'm in the same boat - which way to go - super or turbs ??? =\

Cheers,
Steve

PS, I have only driven an AU Turbo I6 - don't know what a supercharged one is like to drive.
