Hey guys, i currently have an EL Falcon with the hybrid motor (au head and crank). i was wanting some of your input on what other modifications i should do and prices. I dont want to turbo it jsut yet.

I currently have a lukey exhuast, extractors, high flow cat, mild cam, pedders lowered suspension, 18" BA GTP Wheels, and a sound system

Cheers

What sort of cam do you have at the moment?, if its mild id go with a short diff ratio, something like 3.9 and a bigger cam

At the moment i have a Wade Camshaft. i sent my original camshaft in to be modified and i simply told them to mofidy it so it can still suit my standard engine managment.

Ok cool, i had that cam in my car aswell, it works good down low and has a pretty strong mid range. I have a Wade 1671AU cam now and it works really good.

Yeah diff gears to 3.9 and LSD
a J3 chip from Ti performance
and a bigger cam from wade

That should make a pretty big difference

Ahh sweet. The Camshaft you have in your car at the moment, does that run on standard engine managment, or does it require the J3 Chip.
I am going to buy the chip, but im just not too sure if it will make a difference.

The camshaft will work with standard tune, but can get pretty lumpy and hunt around if its an auto. The J3 chip made quite a big difference to the mid range power in my car as well as response and fuel economy.
