Im after ideas on how to make my el quicker, so far ive done
5 speed conversion with extreme hd clutch
345 lsd
Boxed pod filter
Pacy 4480s, 200 cell cat and 2.5" exhaust
Port and polished tickford head with 30 thou off
Crow 2549 (stage 3) with hd valve springs
J3 to suit
Thinking maybe 3.7s, bigger fuel pump and injectors then dyno tune?
Anything else that needs improvement?
Ive still got a year and a half until im off my Ps, so gotta stay NA
Thanks

Worked for me

From what i read your saying.. it hasnt been dyno tuned yet? With those mods perhaps theres a fair bit to be made with a decent tune?

Otherwise as said.. wait till Ps are over and boooost,

or DOHC the girl :)

Yeah when im off my ps I was thinking built au bottom end with my ported el ticky head. Not real keen on doing a barra conversion, is it worth doing a bigger fuel pump and injectors before a dyno tune? Was going to get a bosch 044 but notbsure about injectors. Will later model falcon injectors go straight in and make a decent gain?

If you want to use other injectors, just use the AU 20lb injectors. BA 29lb will be too big for your application and will need to be cycled back with the J3 anyway. Larger pump won't hurt but probably won't need to unless your old one is on the way out.

They won't give you a performance increase but they have a better spray pattern.

I felt noticeable difference in idle, defininetly improved with the AU ones,

but didnt feel any increase in power,
just seemed to rev out easier/smoother, which would be caused from the better spray pattern

Yep, definitely smoother. And possibly a little better fuel economy and lower emissions too (for anyone who worries about these things :| ).

No one would have any idea.

depends on engine condition, geabox condition, and diff condition, and how well your engine responds to mods,
no 2 engines are the same.

get it tuned properly with au injectors and go from there. the package you have should make decent power.
