Just go to Ford and get the genuine ones. They don't cost too much and they work a treat. It'll be the AU style bolt, but won't make much difference. I used it and it's fine.

I have a Wade1673 which is giving a nice 144rwkws. Of course thats with the inclusion of other mods. Nothing wrong with wade that I have found so far.

A Dev5 would be nice as well from JMM. Could try a CMS stage 3 but not sure how well that would go since I don't know much about the CMS stuff.

CrowCams might also help you out if you give them a ring, though the cams are dearer.

glennaux managed to get 114rwkw out of his stock EL Fairmont Ghia...which is running the same gear as an EL XR6 I believe. So you're about right with the rwkw figures.

Even though it is 98rwkws, the automatic transmission in the Holdens have better gearing then the Ford, and not to mention they are lighter and so don't need as much power to take it as far as a fat Ford.
