Probably APC in Wangara. Thats the closest one I can think of.
I don't know if they are any good with the accuracy though.

Got any recommendations?

I'd use MCE in wangara mate, just as close and a bit better with their setting up etc.

Have you got an idea on price? About $60 or so for a power run with AFRs.

I paid $80 for a power run through MCE before i did all the work. For that you should be able to get one printout with AFR's and one with torque.

HAHAHAHA.
Yeah. Shes getting a polish all this week. A couple of panels a day as it takes me about 1 hour per two panels.

Shes going to look clean and go fast.

I'll need to chat to you about MSD ignitions. Get that all sorted.
Might even get a set of nice shiney valve covers.

Mate, i'd just go for an MSD Blaster coil, MSD cap and rotor kit, MSD Leads and a set of new NGK's(If not already fitted). That should pretty much do you for now. I have never gone as far into MSD dizzy's and ignition boxes etc, so i cant advise into that, but i dont think you'll have any dramas running the above.

Give Dave @ A1Hiperformance (BOTTLEDUP) a buzz, he'll sort you out and know exactly what your looking for.

Cool. Thanks I'll do that then.
Will be able to make it today just after 4pm if it suits you to pick up my clutch kit.
I'll give KEC a ring and see if they have my flywheel in yet.

Get a Crane Hi-6 and PS92 coil or an MSD digital 6 and matching coil. The old analog MSD6A is an unreliable piece.
The crane setup will be cheaper to buy.
Make sure you grab a set of 3 piece underdrives from BPT if you haven't already.

Yeah I've got under drives already Pete.

Crane Hi-6 and Ps92 coil. Check. Are these just plug and play? ie bolt on and drive away. Don't need to get a tune or anything?

Thanks.

Only thing I should be after now is a 65mm TB as the 58mm is maybe a touch on the small side.

Yeah they have instructions on how to wire them up...it's easy. You can even get a Ford 5.0 connection harness for it. Yes a 65mm is good for that combo.

Spewin mate, you should of snapped that one up i had here, it got sold last week. Should be able to track another one down.

I may have to look into those above reccomended ignition systems by Pete.
What sort of differences do you see with them Pete?

Yeah and the flywheel came in today.
Hopefully I can pick up the clutch kit from your tomorrow (sorry about today, I hate screwing people around) and then go to KEC and pick the flywheel up. Bomber has sent out the billet short shifters so next week I can line up the clutch and shifter install.

Then within two weeks she'll hit the dyno.

Also the EL GT MAF should arrive soon.
