Hi I'll just say I'm new to this site before anything else.
pic of dyno sheet here: http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu33 ... 180914.jpg

My EL pulled 147.1rwkw and thats with:

Pacemaker 4499 extractors
3" High Flow Cat
2.5" Exhaust (Single Muffler)
Wade 977B Camshaft
Crow Valve Springs
Larger Exhaust and Inlet valves
AU Steel Head Gasket
Head Ported
K&N panel filter
XR6T snorkel
Shift Kit
3.89 LSD
J3 Performance Chip & Dyno Tuned

I have paid a total of $5500 for all this including labour, only did a few of these mods myself. Picked up some of it second hand, saved a bit of money that way. Considering my rwkw figure and that my car is auto, I should run mid 14s with a good launch. Yours being manual, you may not want to change your diff, which will save you a 1g at least.

I reckon with extractors, high flow cat, 2.5" exhaust, large cam, stronger valve springs, higher flowing intake, the head ported, chip and good dyno tune you could run mid to high 14s, this setup taking you for about $2500-3500, less if you can do most of the work yourself and get some of the stuff 2nd hand.

Cheers
Callum

You can run a 14 on an unopened 4L, infact smoke_ ran a 14.6 in a manual EF GLI with 3.45LSD, Pacie Comps and a 2.5" exhaust. I ran a 14.9 in an unopened 5spd ED XR6 with the factory 3.45LSD, Pacie 4499's and a 2.5" exhaust.

It doesn't take much after an exhaust to run mid 14's in a 4L Manual falcon, Auto's on the other hand are harder to crack into teh 14's at all. It is possible, but not easy.

Ride: 97 EL XR6

Power: 162 rwkw

Location: liverpool
NSW, Australia

i ran a 14.3 in my 5 speed EL XR6

MODS:
CMS stage 3 cam
CMS stage 2 head
Extractors, 2.5" exhaust, hi flow cat
3" air intake pipe

i had 143 rwkw and 370nm on CMS dyno

you dont need an ecu upgrade or tune to run a mid to low 14, you just need the right gear and you need to speak to people that know what they are doing....

after that 14.3 run i put on a 68mm throttle body which cranked my power up to 152rwkw. If i added diff gears and had the car tuned, i surely would have cracked into the 13s... but that car is now sold!

another important thing is that you also need to know how to drive! haha

Location: Adelaide

I ran a 14.9 @ 95mph with an stalled auto EB, 3.7s & 160rwkw. Should've been a lower 14.

The auto was holding me back. It also didn't like the heat.
