Would love to know what's out there on eBay for the enthusiast/petrolhead on a budget. Anyone got any recommendations?

Found the feedback from buyers of the blower a bit vague - no-one was really saying they got any performance benefit.

yeh mate that would be perfect for you.. honestly, im in an ea and it really made a difference.

biggest difference is the cam mate.

for you i would buy a cat back new 300ish/2nd hand 100ish

extractors 300-450/140-250

cam - get it reground by wade or camtech (big big plus for camtech cam)

air intake - pod 50$ and make yourself


if you want a cam for regrinding gimme a pm, i have an ea cam that got taken out when my camtech went in, i thoroughly reccomend you get a camtech stage 1 would be perfect. no reshimming and great torque from 2k onward. Not heaps of kw but plenty of torque which is what you need, pulls sick skids :)

and no reshimming either.

i want 70$ or so for the cam, cost you about 140 to regrind it into the profile you want, i payed 120 for install (no shims required). best value for money u eva spent.
