G'day Fellas,

im new here and a few months ago got my first car 91 NC Fairlane Ghia 3.9l. On LPG

Since its kinda heavy especially with the 85l LPG tank in the back, and i run it on Gas most of the time unless im in a hurry ;) is it worth trying to get some extra power out of the engine???

from what ive been reading on here and the 6cyl sticky it sounds like 2.5" lukey/redback exaust, extractors and an XH intake would be the way to go.

how much would this set me back (installed) ???
how much performance would i expect to gain???
what would be the best extractors???
does anyone know a good place in melb????

Cheers

Emissions laws over here require them.

A new cat will flow fine with very little restriction. But like anything they get dirty and clogged and so flow less.

Yeah had tuff muff do mine. They do really good work in there. Car line charge way to much for most of what they do but are good for cold air induction fitted. Did you get the redback system?


Nah, my car currently has a lukey system on and just looking at changing over at the moment. But will be getting the to do the pacies in a couple of weeks.
