My mate has an ea fairmont ghia 5speed with 3.23's stock 3.9 with a cam and chip it runs 14.3, the look on the faces of commo v6 and v8 drivers when they get flogged by a pretty ratty looking ea lol its shame.

Update on my progress.I think I have found what has stopping me from going somewhere.I replaced the valve springs with a stronger set alot stonger then XR6.Instantly noticed gain.Use to wheel spin in first with the old cam now it doe the same.Went to Chiptorque and had it retuned.Eventually gained 17RWKW so now it has 157.1 RWKW on a 34 degree day.Pulls like a freight train and dyno chart shows Iam making power to 5300 and holds it to rev cut.Now all I need is a better cold air set up to reduce the 50 degree inlet temp at filter.
