Probably if I fit an aftermarket cam and on a cool night could possibly get in the high 6's or low 7's. What do you think? The weight of the Monty is letting me down too I think??

Bet the paccys and 2.5 really help open up the top end. keeps the needle swinging upwards definately. Best mod you can do for a falcon 6. really changes the entire engine. Cant wait for the day I slip some on the AU.

well it was very very hot day (27c at the time) and was still running with just over half a tank of fuel when that time was done, so a cool night with 1/4 tank runs would see that drop a lot, without mods at all lol.

Yeah the exhaust is probably the first place that should be changed if wanting improvement.

I will be taking the monty to the drags in the next couple of months.

From the clip I am getting about 138km/hr(86.25MPH) in 13-14secs, so I am hoping for a mid 15sec pass??? fingers crossed!!!!

cheers..
