My car's number 3 on that BPR list and it was difficult to get to 164rwkw with a Wade 1673. IMO you'll need a 1521a to get over 170+rwkw, a CMS Stage 3 (or similar).

EF_XR_96, what's your exhaust setup after the extractors? With the improved flow in the head, you might consider going to a 3" from the cat back.


There is no exhaust system at the moment, the factory system was removed and scrapped, i was going to get a highflow cat and a 2.5 inch redback or similar... do you think it is worth going for a 3inch??

If you choose a cam that gives more power in the top end, then it's worthwhile (especially if you need a new exhaust anyway). At 5000+ rpm, the engine will breathe better and you may pick up a few rwkw at WOT. Just have to keep the noise under control and not attract the attention on Mr Plod. :wink:

It's not going to make enough power to warrant an exhaust that big.

How bigger cam could you go with a comp like that as i'm assuming u have shaved the head and put a AU head gasket on. I have a similar setup and the cam is the linch pin ATM with regards to valve to piston clearance. I took 30thou off the head and put an AU gasket in with high comp pistons but missing the power as i only have a wade 1673 in ATM.
Any thoughts?
