Ride: 98 EL Futura

Power: 199 rwkw

Location: Lilydale
VIC, Australia

I haven't been down the quarter yet, my guess is high 14's if can take off with out wheel spin, it feels very strong on take of and just keeps pulling. It beats many cars on the streets that do 14's by the book, but that's the street and doesn't really mean much.

You'd need to confirm your current compression but with where your currently heading id say it would already be too high or high enough at present you wouldnt see as much gain for your $$$ spent.... best bet would be to talk to a performance specialist who knows there fords and been involved in boosting them....

Talk to Joe at CMS or the guys at Raptor on this forum if you are keen on their gear - they'd be able to give you a more accurate picture on where you stand...before you begin wasting money

take the head off....its the only accurate way to do it...

if its around 9.5 that should still be low enough for boost....

I'll see what I can do!

I was going to run an AU coil packs setup but I couldn't get it running, it could of worked if I had the fuel lines on the right way around :roll: :lol:

So its running the dissy ATM but I'll be getting a mega squirt ASAP! (should of taken coupe 66's advice and done it before!)

Gday i have just been thinking what else i can do to my car while still NA, I have a full rebuilt engine, full exhaust, CAI, 68mm throttle body, Wade 1671 cam, SCT chip and xr6t injectors. Its putting out 154rwkw at the moment, what else can i do to the car other than getting a bigger cam to get more power from it? I was thinking full port and polish with the head but im not sure if i will gain anything from it? What else is there to do besides forced induction?

Cheers


did you mean 1673 or is it a custom regrind?
how much did it cost you to get the engine rebuilt ?

any help will be great thanks
