Hi guys

I have a mate heading to the states figured its a great opportunity to pick up an rpm II. But unsure what else is needed.

Can the standard fuel rails be used ?

will be 65ml throttle body off the explorer manifold fit on ?

And lastly is there much power to be had over explorer with just bolt on or a different manifold?


thanks guys

Yes.
Yes.
and if the rest of the engine is stock you'll likely have a reduction in performance.

I have an au111 engine in an el with di fillippo extractors-exhaust and will have a tune next week also so in that regard your think there would be a change in power yes :S ?.

Also will have a cam in the next month or so. And hopefully a few other mods alloy heads and blower down the track

I have a manual EL XR8 its has gennie headers hi flow balistic cats 3inch exhaust replaced my stock HO intake and T/B with the RPM 2 and 70mm BBK T/B. In performance i went from a 0-100 in 7.8 to a healthy 0-100 in 6.9 with traction issues. RPM2 in my oppinion in one of the best after market manifolds.

Agree with matt there it basically knocked a full second off 0-100 and the bottom end torque is fantastic.

Glad the manifold and TB went to a good home, and improved the car the way i said it would.

RPMII is even good enough to support 405rwhp on my mates EL XR8 with 363ci stroker.
Obviously it and the 75mm T/B pose the only restriction at this stage.

RPM2 gives great gains from 1200 right through out the rev range. Yeah thanks Brad ill have to catch up after easter as im flat out at work atm n i get my license back in 2 weeks, how you going anyway mate? The bank balance is increasing fast atm wont be long till i have the engine done:twisted: Sure did go to a good home Brett soon ur top end will be sitting on a dart 363 bottom end so i can make use of those big chambers and start making some good realiable power :P .
