Hi guys. I'm doing some mods to my eb Fairmont. I've got a explorer manifold, gt40p heads,headers, 65mm throttle body and a 70mm maf from au. I have not started putting anything on yet. My questions are:
Will my factory ecu handle this without a tune?
Is it worth getting some 1.7 ratio rockers?
My car is auto. Can't really be bothered doing a manual conversion. Should I stick with the factory Cam?

You're going to need a tune with the bigger MAF (using a J3 chip). IMO get some quality 1.6 roller rockers instead, heavier double valve springs and a bigger cam. What about a hi-stall converter?

What condition are the heads? Most people will tell you to get some aluminium heads instead of spending it on the GT40Ps as they flow better.

What's your budget and how many km on your engine?



AU2 XR8 with Raptor VL, ported Yella Terra GT40P heads, Scorpion 1.6 RRs, XE264HR-14 Comp Cam, ceramic coated Hurricane Headers, 60lb injectors, Walbro 255, 200cfi cats, 3" exhaust & Snow Performance water methanol injection
