Ride: 1997 EL XR6

Power: 180 rwkw

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

I have an EL XR6 with only 79,000 on the clock, since owning it I have had pacemaker headers, an SS air induction kit put on and had a Red-Back medrel bent exhaust installed. However, after placing it on the dyno it only has 129 rwkw. Without supercharging or turbocharging does anyone have any ideas on increasing rwkw? I have looked into getting a J.3 chip but the power gain seems mininmal and hardly worth the money. Any ideas would be great.
Cheers.

129 is a pretty good start for the mods you've done.
The next easiest and most cost effective mod would be to fit a cam. (I think)

Check out this thread for a basic run down on what's available.
