Hi guys,

Just after some info - im in the nmeans of turboing my falcon and have heard how much potential can be gained from forced induction setups on the EF/EL 4ls

But no note of an 8cyc .... :twisted:

So why not have both ???

Ive considered still going turbo but on an EL XR8 motor so just asking for any pros and cons....im guessing i might lose a little power with the extra weight but wouldnt it be more torque ?

Thanks

The extra weight shouldn't cause you to loose power. Wiehgt doesn't effect power.

What do u mean weight doesnt effect power ... thats where the power to weight ratio comes in :lol:

it will effect the power to weight ratio, but it will not effect power itself.

its deffinately a good idea.
there was a TT EL XR8 around a while ago, but the guy sold the turbo setup and the car.
