yep....... will run AU i6 injectors, as they flow more & spray better, I've got cars out there with them in & running with the factory ECU

thx guys, that is off course after she has warmed up. otherwise its even more cranky.

as joe said standard ecu will run the au injectors without a problem, also with joes stge 3 cam it needs an upgrade to springs and valves

can someone please explain to me why leaning out at 170kph is such a bad thing? lol

I mean, hes gonna get to a little over 150kph on the 1/4 mile so it should be right? Or am i missing something here

I suggested it to keep the car in a safer state and avoid detonation. The au injectors will be fine in the car but may need a tune..I am not sure.
170kmph isnt too bad but better injectors may see the power climb slightly. Good going Joe. Kenwood Maverick your car may hit 150 rwkws yet but who cares? The track tells the real story. As our friend says...horsepower wins dyno days and torque wins races!!

good to hear and it will make a difference champ, can change where the power curve starts and finishes.


i set my cam at the recommended lift and whilst im not sure what improvement it has, i can say that there was a measurable difference in the vernier change....... ended up having to retard the cam timing by 1 degree to dial it in which goes to show the cam gear mark cant be trusted.
