what would a vs II 5L commo with a 'thump thump sub in the trunk trunk' run in quarters and 0-100's rough?

i've got a 0-100 of 11.5 and with basic exhaust work (2.5in w. 4480's) and a quarter without the extractors of 16 flat. dropping a cam in would make it a close one, no?

even stock auto with all that weight? i suppose your right. so how do i claw back this complete lack of performance?

i'm thinking a set of dyno runs may be on the cards. how much for a few runs and what do i know to bring / know?

Ride: BA Falcon

Power: 106 rwkw

Location: Craigmore
SA, Australia

held a vq off the line in my AU I6 to 100 kmh, he wasnt happy either. Side by side neither of us gaining any ground both flat to the floor.

Was a nice car, had nice wheels etc, looked pretty clean. Guess he was p****d off that he was almost taken by an Ex Vic Taxi.... LOL and I was on LPG!!!

only work done on mine is extractors & unifilter - stock exhaust and everything else.

dyno runs will be useless for an upgrade in performance... unless you think you car is running s**t (AFR's way out) but then again better off using hte money to replace sensors O2 so on.

Best thing to do to a auto falcon IMO is upgrade the Diff. 3.7's at least 4.11's if you don't do much highway driving - id probably go 3.9's. and LSD or Lokka.

power isnt the be all that people think it is tho....

my car is kinda a freak. Some have balls, others dont. had mine on a dyno almost cracks 100rwkw and yet I can spin the wheels off the line on LPG. Try and figure that one out. Either that or the VQ was a slow one for a 5 litre.

Just for those that are interested it has 820k on the clock and has original engine (numbers match)

but if your i6 ford has 174 rwkw and over 420 nm of torque at rear wheels those holden 5 litres are more than fair game... :twisted:

who the f**k are you talking to? Feeling delirious? In no part of this has anyone even posted that a "6 ford" can hold ground against an "8 holden". Even though they kinda can.

And saying that an ef xr6 will get blown away by a clubsport thats like freaking chalk and cheese. considering the $17,000 when new price difference you would expect that. Its like saying a VR S commy is s**t coz it cant keep up with a T3 TE50...

To put it in better perspective the TE50 wipes the floor with your clubsport, and has compareable price, $55,000 for the 98 clubby and $58,000 for the 02 TE50.- AU vs VT fair enough?

spend the $17,000 difference on an ef xr6 and you will see the match become very interesting in the Xr's favour.

use you noodle mate.

Well hes said its a VS Statesman V8
I think it gives him a slight advantage considering the extra weight in the larger car

Though my friend has a VS Grange & Senator and both haul a**
Thats HSV though, fiftyone is talking about a stock statesman with a V8

From what i remember i stayed side by side with one of them about a year ago with our stock EL, only lowered with 18's

its amazing how people start throwing in all these different cars when he asked about a VS Statesman?
Your point being???

Anyway you should do ok considering they werent built for performance
