Ride: EL XR8 363 stroker

Power: 260 rwkw

What you need is...

Edelbrock RPM2 intake manifold $900
Extractors $800
Cam $350
Taller rocker covers
A set of 1.7 roller rockers $300
65mm TB $250
70mm maf $150
SCT chip $580
Tuning $600
Labour $1000
Total of around $5000 and it should put out around 200rwkw, there is no such thing as cheap power and thats about as cheap as you can go N/A, you could probably gather parts slowly and cheaply and save yourself some money.

200 rwkw? Not without some aftermarket heads.

i would have thought 5gs for 200rwkw in a 5ltr is fairly cheap.

thats not cheap^^.

If you search through the forsale section you can find all sorts of go fast pats for your falcon, capare your forgetting that doing diff gears makes a hell of alot of difference..

bang for buck you can pick up explorer manifolds cheap and a 65mm t/b, 3.9 diff gears (if auto)
3000rpm (if its auto).

Ill be honest mate if you did those two mods youd be happy for awhile before forking out bigger $ for rocker/underdrives/mafs/cams etc

You want to accelerate faster more than have heaps of power..

Yes I did read he had GT40P heads.
I said "aftermarket" heads.
If there are any people who have 200rwkw from using GT40P heads on their 5L then they would be one in a hundred as those factory heads never flow enough to guarantee you'll pass 200rwkw, let alone achieve it ( even if a dyno was generous ).

get one of those $20 ebay chips that give your car like 20hp, and those electric turbo thingy mbobs. there both cheap cheap cheap and youll have wicked power. lol

forgive my sarcasm.

find gt40 heads and get headers/ new exhaust then get a 347 stroker kit plus blower new diff ratios 2500rpm stally and away you go.
