Ride: EF XR8 5spd

Location: Newcastle
NSW, Australia

Had my car dynoed yesterday and made 162 rwkw's my mods are listed in my signature below, still running 19lb injectors the air/fuel ratio was 13.5 which is getting a bit on the lean side, do you think there is more power to be had if I fit my 24lb injectors with a 73mm c&l maf calibrated to suit the 24's???

Should be lots more there. Sounds like you need a flash tuner put thru the ECU. Chrisreddens au has the same cam etc and it is up near 200rwkw

I first made 161rwkw after fitting the 2030 to my otherwise stock AU XR8 (185kw series 1), so sounds about right for your EF.

I was running 14.5's (with an automatic) all day long with that power. I would expect your EF is lighter than my ute??

13.5 seems pretty lean. Fit the MAF and injectors, and if you can afford it, get a custom chip from someone like Chiptorque to suit. SHould put you closer to 180-200rwkw depending on the rest of your combo...

i have a touch under 160 (158.4) and i'm still running e7 heads. they are ported but i would've thought you would get a bit more power than that with the gt40p's. i have a crane cam but don't know what as i haven't done any of the work to the car. i am running microtech though so i reckon if you chip yours or run aftermarket ecu you should get a nice improvement.

Did the dyno operator measure your injector duty cycle?
