Re: EB performance ideas???? pls help!

Read my sig :)

Seriously though, absolubtely THE single most effective mod short of a blower is a manual box.
Failing that, try a few wreckers for s/h extractors etc, you can usually pick up some good ones cheap - around the $300-500 mark for a full system...
EF intake is another good one, even if you don't use the BBM function.

Re: EB performance ideas???? pls help!

there are heaps of threads about this type of thing..

but most of em say.. Exhaust, Air intake, Cam, Manual, MPFI (if not already), Then you start getting into money country - Turbo or charger

Either go to herrods and check out some of their stuff, or Mocks -DEV kits

Re: EB performance ideas???? pls help!

Couple of ideas, Ipicked up my s/h extractors and sports exhaust at the wreckers for $160 and installed it myself. If your car is a EB GL maybe a falcon S computer, don't know how much it cost or the benefits cos haven't tried it.

Re: EB performance ideas???? pls help!

Oh yeah I didn't read that :)

A manual for an 8 is rare as rockinghorse shit mate, that'll set you back a fair few $$$.
Other than that, intake manifold and extractors/exhaust I'd suggest, but am not a v8 expert
