Woah, attack of the pre teens.

Look at the title. I'm 16 and need power. What does that say to you? Obviously this guy has exercised every single kiloWatt from his car in the most brutal fashion and it no longer satisfies him.

And how should one act after reading pages and pages of threads just like this one. Should I encourage and harbour this mentality? I think not. I was 16 once too and had the exact same mindset. And you know what brought me back into line? Being told to shut the F$#K up by older members of the group I hung with. Don't you guys have any mentors in your group or are you the ring leaders?

It seems with you guys these days if people aren't supporting you 100% then they are dead set against you. Haven't you ever head the tag line "Its for your own benefit"? Or do you guys think to yourselves "so and so says that cause he is jealous" every time you hear that line.

First things first. You've only held your license a handful of months and probably have less than 1000kms driving experience. Learn to drive first and get to know your limits real well. Then and only then can you search for power. I'll stand by those words till the day i die.

Oh and has anyone seen our mate jonny's attitude change slightly towards the end of the thread. First he appeared slightly gutted when advised he should not think about power and now he comes across as claiming he started the thread merely to see how many bites he could get. At least when i form an opinion I stick to it.

Depends if you do the work or pay a shop to do it. Could be between 2 and 4k all up.

Manual conversion is 1250 drive in, drive out at Olympic Motor Wreckers here. And 3.45 LSD is about 600-700 at the same place.

Then what the hell was that second pm about. Where you have had so many years with karts and you know many 16 year old females who drive 12 second drag cars therefore you know your limits,followed by several expletives and suggesting i masturbate on a regular basis. I don't think you took my advice on when you wrote that pm. You can be such a two faced immature little b**ch sometimes.

Guys... stop bickering.

I don't agree that a 16 year old needs any more power than a Falcon already has. But the raw truth is that he asked a question and the only replies he should be getting in this thread are ones that answer his question... If you don't agree with what he wants to do then just don't post. It's simple.

And that price includes a second hand T5 box and all accessories. It also includes a 3 month warranty on parts.

And to be honest, I've never driven a manual falcon. Only autos! I've heard that manual falcons feel like you're putting the power to the ground a lot better. But autos are still about as fast. Even faster if you install a hi-stall converter and shift kit.

But from experience, LSD's are worth it.

just throw a 5spd and a 3.45lsd in, it wont increase kwts but it will feel like it has more power. once you get used to that then start the search for more power. you will be pleasntly surprised how much diference a manual will make.
