Okay so my mate has bought an au on petrol 130 000 kays. i have an ef on gas 230 000 kays.

nothing that is cheap. and if you need to ask, you probably can't do it yourself.

things that will work.

diff gears
a P/D supercharger
nitrous
all of the above
hook up a towrope behind a top fueler :wink:

lol well, i would say that stock vs stock and ef would probably beat an AU but yours has gas which is likely to restrict your intake and has more k's but that can mean jack s**t dads ef has almost 260,000 and it hammers. quicker than most other auto stock falcons i been in.

piss off the gas lol

yeah id say tear off the gas, but all in all the au is slightly lighter and has a smoother revving motor.

stock vs stock at this age comes down to care. 230,000 well looked after kilometers is going to (on a general basis) out perform 130,000 hard as f**k kilometers. ie my tranny is slipping like f**k lately. on a dyno itd read low, but I know it has more in it than what it would read. real world power ie at the wheels is dependant on so many factors. not the least how it is used in the gearing alone.

I would have to say lose the heavy fluffy dice, they are prob producing too much lag and adding excess weight.

I would go for more of a bobbing elvis or dog.

I hope this helps..

LMFAO.

well my car has been serviced every 5000 kays since new, i dont flog the s**t out of it, its duel fuel so i would use petrol if i was to drag him, umm yeh, theres nothing wrong with my car at all, not a single oil leak, had a reconditioned engine put in it not to long ago (out of choice not cos it was rooted). yeh
i have noticed that my mates is quicker off the line while im on gas, but not that much. and accelerating from about 80 to maybe 110 i can keep up.
so maybe i just try it on petrol and see how it goes. aint guna get my hopes up but.
and if anybody would like to donate a bobbing elvis or dog for my "EF VS AU" charity please do, it would be greatly appreciated.
cheers
