How to get 14 secong 1/4 mile?

im thinking about getting an eb II XR6 or just a 4.0 falcon, what work can i do to the engine, to get into the 14's on the 1/4 mile. it will be a manual for sure.
is there any workshops that do packages for the 4.0 i6, i know jmm motorsprt do and their packages look tempting, the dev3hl especially, so what should i do?
what needs to be done to the engine?

Re: How to get 14 secong 1/4 mile?

You're on the right track, JMM stuff is decent. Crow and Wade also appear to be good from what others have said.

The JMM DEV3HL should easily get you into the 14 sec zone, just do a search on 'quikcorty' to see how much power you need.
He's run 14.6 with 135kw.
My DEV3HL package produces 138kw with a blown head gasket.

what 1/4 mile time do u get soxx?
the dev3hl seems like a pretty good package for 2500 fitted. i was going to get a vn v6 but id have to spend over 5 grand to get it into the 14's. the 4.0 is a lot easier to modify.

STOKEB has done a 14.5 in his EB, he might be able to give you some tips :)

I haven't yet drag raced my current car.
But I do get consistent high 6's, low 7's to 100kph, and my ute weighs 1600kg, which is heavier than quikcortys EA.

Re: How to get 14 secong 1/4 mile?

I believe the EA/EB/ED series were quite light, less than 1600kg anyway.

The T5 used in all I6 Falcons since EA is more than strong enough for a very tough I6.

Re: How to get 14 secong 1/4 mile?

if its a manual,
a good exhaust got me 15.4
then the wade cam got 14.78 with the std diff
a 3.45lsd got a 14.6

oh and the exhaust cost me $700 for pacemaker extractors and lukey system. $122 for the wade cam.
