Firstly how's the engine itself, still strong?
Personally I'd go get a 1673 wade cam(or regrind cam for cheaper) and a j3 chip from T.I performance. I think regrind cam and chip comes in under $400.

Yeh i think its pretty strong its done 400,000km but never had any engine issues or troubles. And always been serviced and has never really been flogged. Well until i bought it lol. Yeh thats wat i was thinking and maybe sum valve spring and biger injectors. Would a high torquqe cam from crow cams be good?

With 400.000kms id be checking compression and a few other things before dropping a cam in it.

any engine mod in anyway shape or form is usless with out a custom tune so what ever you do finish it of with a tune. take your bigger injectors idear your computer will only let a set amunt of fuel go through the system and bigger cams just confuse the ecu and end up dumping fuel. hope it helps and u get a tune

bigger injectors are useless with almost any mod on an e series unless your boosting it, i doubt your going to have 180 kw or more at the rears with your car so you wont need larger injectors.

As your car is an Auto, the Wade 1673 will be too big, and will be a pig to drive below 2600rpm with no pull at all. The tall 1st gear in the auto makes this much worse than it could be.

A Wade 1636 is designed to work with an Auto as it comes on earlier in the rev range.

I have the 1673 with a T5, which works great as a combo.

Cheers
BenJ

nope, altho if your injectors are playing up fit standard 6 cylinder au falcon injectors, they have a better spray pattern
