Exactly!! There is too many variables that determine the time you run down the quarter. MPH is the figure you're after when talking about how much power a car has.

I remembered reading on here a while ago about a guy who ran over 100mph in his modded AU, can't remember if he had any sheet to prove it... I'll see if i can dig up the thread and post the link..

EDIT: About 3/4 of the way down the page, username is stiddy.. Power out of an NA six

The weight of an AU and his 102MPH backs up his claimed power.
untill other people start posting MPH i'm not inclined to believe some of these power claims

25thou off the head shouldn't even bring comp ratio up to 10:1 more then likely it already had bearing problems and he just flogged it to death

and i very much doubt he made that power with those mods. again back it up with MPH, I'm willing to bet it never went faster then 91MPH

this tends to pop up that many times on forums it gets beyond a joke .
Ive seenn and heard so many stories that now i only believe it if i see it or see a video.
Because to me anyone can put ever they want.

My new setup (quick Tune-Pump gas) at springnats 2009 got 228 rw hp. ( 170) - (mikes dyno) this was after i got 169 on hallam 2 days b4 -
And thats with standard bottom end .
This is what my car runs at now Mine has made 176.9 previously .
Best time on old setup was 14.19 -

I have heard that many people tell me that they have made 200rwkw but still yet to see it .
The only person that ive seen get close has been xrchic ford forums 198.7rwkw at kpm and g and d .(does a 13.89)
there are a few dohc in sa up towards high 180 and low 190 too.

I shouldnt see a problem making 200kw out of one of these motors however it comes to how much money and how driveable that you would like the car,.

Also i can tell u right now that jmm 13.3 was in a fully stripped out car. There was next to nothing left in that car .

If you want best times for a na 6
13.7 grenchie
13.8 oed -
These guys have proof .
Both are in the 170's in power too once again with proof

25thou from head wont bring 8.8:1 upto 10.5:1 it would have been lucky to even get 9.5:1 from that. even the 9.35:1 tickford engines won't get 10.5:1 from a 25thou shave
