i have a ef falcon on gas (non tickford), and want to get some power out of it.
i have been told by a few auto gas shops that gas runs at an equivilant to 105~108 ron, and due to this, the car can run higher compression.

i am hoping to get a alted stage 2 or 3 cam(when they come out), but would i have probs with clearances if i get the head shaved???

at the moment i have a venturi style mixer, would i be wrong in thinking that a GRA gas carbie would give me better air-flow into the motor, thus iliminating the "gas intake restriction".

what would be the best (cost effective) way of tuning my ignition maps to better run with gas.

i know there are some good gas cars here and i would like to hear the sugestions you guys come up with.

thank you.

with the ef you can't adjust the timing. best way to get your ignition maps to suit the gas is to find a Factory Ford EF ECU for a car fitted with the Tickford Gas System, but good luck doing finding one seem to be rarer than XR6 ones.

Also run the XR6/Tickford spark plugs. And make sure your ignition leads are up to scratch.

I dunno anything about the GRA gas carbie, but I once saw on yonks ago now and I regreat not buying it to take a closer look, a full replacement intake manifold with a build in mixer and that.
