Just hoping someone here has any ideas for performance mods for my Falc, Ive read the posts--alot of it is expensive, I have three kids, not much cash to blow........but love my car (prolly like all of us here!)

electric superchargers are the worst, its like a computer fan on your intake...those chips that go for 20bucks on ebay are also useless, it says this in the stickys at the top

go to ur other thread about electric superchargers and read my post there about cheap performance

a regrind cam from Wade Cams, will set you back $135 exchange, add a few bucks for extra shims. Although you will need some exhaust and intake mods to make the most of it.

There's your problem, you got LPG. How big is the hole in the gas mixer??? Not much bigger than a single throat Stromberg carby off an XD Xflow???? Can't breathe

EBII had either 3.08 or 3.23 or 3.27 diff gears. There is a tag on the diff to say which one is fitted.

The early EA's ( prior to 4sp auto's), had 2.77 or 2.92. Usually the 3sp auto had the 2.77's and the manuals had the 2.92's. When the 4sp auto's came out, they started to use 3.08's.
