low 14's geez

try this thread, some good ideas there :roll:

http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=51477

Seriously though, might work out cheaper to turbo it, rather than doing head work, cam, internals etc. to achieve that figure.

Converting to a 5 speed might help get you close if you havnt done that already

i still say turbo, im pretty sure it will be good enough for a low 14,
last time i spoke to snort they were in the middle of their 5L kit for the falcon / fairmont / fairlane
http://www.snortperformance.com/

would be good to see a turbo 5L FBT crusing the streets.

im sure itll blow the pants off thoes 2L turbo jap things
even with the extra 500kg being hauled around

Supercharger. I wouldn't touch the engine or anything else being an FBT. If you had a charger you could whack it on and take it off whenever you like. Turbo would be a lot more fussy.
