Yeah I'm meant to be pulling 143kw at the wheels, I did have 2 stuffed lifters that night so it could have affected my times.
Mine has heaps of top end now, really revs hard since the cam and picks up good after 100km, but is a bit slow of the line, I reckon 3.7:1 diff gears, stally and a shiftkit would help? and was thinking of porting the head?

but after saying all that I only did 3 runs and spun hard off the line a couple times, but my first run was good traction, so I will go again and see what happens, I also was told by adding a better induction pipe fro the air box to the throttle body I would at least gain 5kw or so at the wheels, so I'm planing on getting a JMM mandrel bent one.

5kw at the wheels seems a bit much for just a larger diameter induction pipe. A high diff ratio and shift kit should definately see you into the 14's though. Get your chip's tune checked too, something sounds sus there.

Unless they're really stuffed I doubt they'd make any noticable difference other than making a racket!
