I wonder if using the EBC pads on the standard rotors is perhaps a problem, because I've actually found the complete opposite.AUGhiaV8 said:Trust me... throw those EBC pads in the bin - they'll stuff your rotors in no time.
330rwhp (244rwkw) sounds a bit bit high for that combo unless you have added a few more things. I would be counting on around 210rwkw out of a 5.0L with those parts or about 230rwkw out of a stroker package.sylox said:And Redcliff Dyno have been flat out and hadn't got the quote for me yet but ensured i will have it no later than Monday. He ran the parts and the utes specs through the engine program he uses and said he came up with a conservative (set air temp @ 45degrees) estimate of 330rwhp.
Both of those cars are members on the forums cars. Steve has only got a k&n filter & hurricane headers with a liverpool exhaust. Shayne's is basically the same but also has a unichip. Both of them are awesome cars.ebxr8240 said:

That gets everything ... consisting of 329 mm grooved discs with four piston calipers up front and 287 mm grooved discs with four piston calipers out back, teamed with Bosch three-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). It's all been 2-pak painted and cleared, and also comes with brand new EBC GreenStuff pads.
The stock convertor will be fine with the Trickflow 51402000 cam as it has a power range of 1500-5500, and I know a few people running it with stock auto's. The wilder 51402001 cam would probably need a higher stall, but even then its only rated at 2500-3000rpm.sylox said:Now Steve insisted on a stall converter to go with the cam and said that i was going to need at least a 3000rpm stall. It will still drive as normal he said untill I plant the foot and hit will just flare up to stall speed.
If i dont need the converter thats going to Bring that bill down to $3850 but even still with the other bits it wont be comming in under $7000 totalEDXR8 said:The stock convertor will be fine with the Trickflow 51402000 cam as it has a power range of 1500-5500, and I know a few people running it with stock auto's.

Also what do they do for the shift kit, most companies just upgrade the S5 solenoid to an AU spec one (which you already have) and up the pressure.
You also mention you need to get new lifters. Your current ones will be fine as they are roller lifters and don't wear, plus new ones are expensive. If they have done a lot of kms, just disasemble them and clean them out.
