i want to get any suggestions about how to get more torque for my ba falcon. I am currently running 4.0 litre straight 6 with 380nm. My mods include king springs - super lows, k and n panel air filter, auIII V8 air scoop, 2 1/2 inch stainless steel exhaust with twin 3 inch stainless steel tips, limo tint on the windows. I plan on changing the brake system to new rotors and calipers with slotted and cross drilled discs. Just wanting to get any other suggestions on any mods that dont involve a spercharger. I will eventually supercharge it, but later on into the warranty or after a few more kms as the car is only 6 months old. Any suggestions would be appreciated, especially with mods involving torque.

You reckon you could post some pictures of your car up? i've recently been questioning what suspension i should get, i have seen a BA with lows, and it looks nice, but im just wondering out of curiosity about superlows? does it scrape? my BA is stock as a rock at the moment, getting sum 18" ROH's in about 2 weeks...and im going to be putting an SS Induction on and a 2.5"mandrel Bent with extractors and a hi flow cat (unsure of what brand yet) and yes i have also looked at the 'supercharging' idea, but its just 'concept' at the moment, ahahah

yeh i plan on posting a few pictures. I wish i could posty the sound of my car, cause i get compliments every where i go. The superlows are good, the dont scrape but obviously you dont reverse of gutters or go up driveways with a hump the the middle of them. Speed bumps are no problems though, thats your main concern. The superlows get the car down to just of the rubber on thr stock dunlop 16" wheels and 16" alloys from the factory. I plan on putting on 19" chromies in the next month or so. Just have to convince the old man that I need them, LOL. I will get the photos up as soon as my missus works the digital camera for me, cause i have no idea.

What about a Ford Flash Tuner from CAPA? That should wind her up a bit, without doing any seroius power mods. Just a suggestion for the time being.

I'm 19 and I also have a BA with zorst, extractors, intake and a capa edit :P And no daddy didn't pay for it.. all out of my own pocket.

A capa edit is worth it, the whole car feels a lot stronger. It'll use up a lot of fuel though, mines been averaging around 13L/100km.

How are the superlows? I'm thinking about getting mine lowered a bit, it's and XT with standard ride height but 17" BA XR's.

Just for fun this is my car http://members.iinet.net.au/~fnp/BA.wav

doesnt really matter how I got the car, all that matters is what i do to it now. I have looked at the flash tuners but am a little cautious. My brother wants to supercharge it, so maybe that would be an option. However that would mean i need to put an lsd in the car and a few other upgrades. Could be something i look to soon.
