i am after whatever power is possible but still to be used as an everyday car!!

from what people have said there is a possibility of reaching more than 250rwkw which is what i am aiming to achieve, or even surpass!!

OK so you will need a bit of cam and extractors a 3 inch system and maybe some headwork or a smaller pulley and you'll be close or over dude.
Is it a VCT AU?

You probably won't need pistons as long as the motor is healthy.how many K's on it.

it just about to hit 150,000, but i service it every 5000, including gearbox and diff oils along with the usual service!! It loves to have a bit of fun every now n then, but its a brilliant engine that gets spoilt come service time lol

i am gettin a new transmission for it thou as the current on is stuffed! and i just replaced my speedo gears in the ext. housing!!

Raptor

I have seen insane results from JMM cam kits, the 3HL has worked well but the JMM crew assure me they have even better things for supercharging, get in contact with them

Now, apart from the SC kit itself you should count on a WTA intercooler system, if placed as a definite order we can organise that, as of 15 mins ago I have booked in an existing customer with an AU for the WTA cooler kit, so we will have the complete design sorted for you. There will only be minimal changes compared to the EF kit you will have seen on our pages, the performance is rock solid using the long flow cooler. Please do not use an ATA cooler, I would prefer you bought someone else's supercharger system if you want to go ATA. WTA is now featuring super strongly on our recommendations.

Of course a custom tune, not sure who is good around newcastle (if any) but we can work towards that for you


I have been leaning towards JMM products only because there is a customer with the results from them, so I need to be seen recommending the products which are working. The Cresent items and Wade are likely ALL good but I don't have a customer with the SC kit plus their products so can't comment.

I will say that WADE were very quick to come forward with an offer to test a cam of theirs with our product so props to them for sure, I should have done that with them but I am way beyond trying so many little things.


The bottom end will be fine, I would not be forging anything at all, you can do some DEV 5 type porting on the head if you like but leave the bottom end stock, they are very good.

Affirmative on the AU intercooler kit

We have a previous customer booked for 15th OCT for upgrade to his AU ProStreet to ProStreet intercooled. After this anyone will be able to purchase a full WTA cooler kit for AU.

If you are doing headwork and a charger, speak to Surecam, tell them what you have done, and what you want to acheive. they will custom grind a cam that will be near on perfect for what you want.
