How true that is, full exhaust system with decent tri-y extractors!
Get the best of both worlds, lovely note and decent performance gains.. cant go wrong in my eyes.
Carlos,

Should already have decent zorst i rekon, im guessing its a tickford twin pipe system with stock coated extractors..?
Depending on what cash ur looking at spending, if you want big gains what id personally do is stroke it n get it up to T3 spec unless your willing to go Supercharger.
Smaller gains, well depends what its got stock, maybe better cams n such.. the usual.
Do a search n have a look on "fordforums.com" alot of T series owners on there too. :D

Good luck n nice car, what she set u back; pics?

I would go for a cam change as that would give you the biggest power gains for the price. With the right cam you could see a 30rwkw+ improvement and it should set you back around $1500 installed. An exhaust would be another decent idea although gains here won't be as good because the factory system isn't all that bad. A good exhaust and tri-y extractors should give you around 10rwkw IMO and probably cost $1k+ depending on what you go for.

Carlos,

Well obviously..
Altho it wont cost 10k to stroke it, you must have some bigger plans.

If you do it right, would fall just under 10k, once it is all said and done.
And that's with a few things already started, well thats what i have priced the job at, but then again, im looking for a 12.5 sec pass!
Carlos,
P.S Daniel, how are u cummin along with the custom boot install? Spoken to any ppl, run any qoutes? I'm lookin for a similar job, mayb we shuld team up...
