Re: AU2 Xr8 mods advice

The crow cams have a good idle, and were designed for the AU XR8's. It will not make as much power as the 2030/2031 cams but will stil give good results.

Re: AU2 Xr8 mods advice

If Slipper's 2030 cam is anything to go by the idle is fine... nowhere near as cranky as I had imagined one would be. His is calmed by a Unichip as yours will be with the ChipTorque. Definately go the 2030.

Re: AU2 Xr8 mods advice

Yeah, the 2030 would be the safest bet for you IMO. Many people have used this setup with good results.

Re: AU2 Xr8 mods advice

Slight change in plans guys Have taken AU2XLSV8's advice on board after a couple of phone calls with him and a chat to Bob Romano as well.
Basicly looking at the sheer cost of labour on this job I would be a flippin moron not to do the heads as well should i get them ported was a question but thinking about it and na if i am going to do it I want to do it once and propally.

as it stands now

The plan looks like waiting a little longer for some $$$ to build up and getting......

A set of complete Alloy heads
Matching manifold
And the 2030 cam along with the timing gear etc.

And should be seeing around 190-200rwkw one would hope (making 160.1now)

So that would mean when the time comes my GT40p heads (complete) and inlet manifold, Cam etc would be for sale. Any one thats thinks they might be interested let me know And I'll keep you in mind when this happens...




i'm swiming in this maze of figure i tell ya

Re: AU2 Xr8 mods advice

Sounds like a great plan Andrew

There are a huge range of alloy heads out there to choose from too.

Great to see that your going to get serious with your AU. The Windsors have so much potential.
