Umm ... here's one possibly worth consideration .....

Given that it is a twin cam head .... try altering the LOBE SEPARATION ...

Dial the exhaust and / or the Intake cam a little closer .. if you have access to the dyno guy for little outlay this mucking around may pay dividends ... Just a thought ...


Cheers

As I said, D&T Performance did everything on the car. Cost $1400 I think.

D & T do their dyno testing in shootout mode I believe. There figures (especially here in Adelaide) have been way higher than two other dyno centres using the same vehicle as a test bed. Take the car to another dyno centre to compare.

my thoughts exactly.
i think these are large figures for a basically stock unopened BA
although i have been told the flash tune can work wonders.

I'd like to do that eventually. So I take it there's not a lot else I can do bar selling/buying someone gruntier or forced induction?
