Afternoon all,

I'm having some work done on Monday, and I was hoping to elicit some opinions on how everyone thinks it'll affect power..

Current set up -

Crow EA-ED Wild Performance Cam (222825)
EA-EF Vernier adjustable timing set (CS6EA-VS)
Falcon XR6 valve springs (7739-6)
2 1/2 inch Pacemaker extractors, 2 1/2 inch high flow redback cat & mufflers (PH4499, STR110, 2T3870TP)
Ported & polished Cyl Head,
Unichip computer

With this set up, I hit 130rwkw on a dyno about a month ago.

Monday I'll be adding:

LSD with 3:5 gears
Stage 5 Crow cam set up. (2222543)

Keeping the Auto - it's only done about 20,000kms.

Car will be tuned at Fitzgerald Racing Services (Box Hill).
Typically they work with Porsche's, but they're willing to tune the Fairmont.
Unichip tuners are getting harder to find :/

So, predictions anyone?

Its probably too much cam for an auto with standard converter. I would go 3.7 or 3.89 gears, instead of 3.45's, you will be much better off, and will allow you to get the revs up a lot quicker.
