bbm.... el ecu...
runnin the el engine with ea manifolds & ecu is like runnin an ea with an el head... will go better than an ea but not as good as an el.
the el head is made for the bbm, the log manifold is made for 3.9 heads with stupid 'pre-ignition' hooks inside the chamber.combination will make better power but same if not less torque.
i have a bbm on ea eec IV locked on long runners & was pretty impressed with the improvement in torque from log to bbm but power seems to be the same & top end lost. next step up for me would be eecV to incorprate the bbm switch & the tune for the bbm.
finish the job & you will be rewarded whilst sticking to a budget.
if your budget is bigger go the cam c.a.i & extractors. the best first step up from stock.

A diff ratio change will help too, as will a hi-stall convertor.

no point sucking in hot air either stick with what you want to do kostah.

best bet would be to get a cam ground for low down grunt. or call a few places n ask them what they do down low. the people who sell the products are actually more helpfull than the people on here baggin them out because they put a e series cam in a hybrid motor etc.

after you've done your own homework then ask for people opinions on the product, try to include part numbers etc.
otherwise people round here won't want to help you, theres a big ego gang on here that know everything n will be glad to tell you so. other longstanding members on this website actually know what they are talking about n if you can sift through the p00fters to get to the usefull people your doin well.

(doesn't claim to know everything just tries to h.e.l.p)
