Ill answer half of them, if your leaving the motor mostly stock, ie RPM range, then a 2 1/2" will be just fine, unless you get the ELGT extractors for a song, buy something else more friendly to work with, the guy I got mine off couldnt praise the genies he replaced them with enough.

How much power questions are very open ended......

look, what your going to get in bolt on mods isnt realy going to get you what your after. Mine still couldnt even do a stand still with full exhaust and 1.72 roller rockers.

So i saved up money upgraded heads, camshaft and manifold and it made all the difference i was after. Sounds 10x better then stock, spins tyres when you plant it off line and thats with crappy 3.08 gears and does 90 in first gear, lol. The difference between a HO engine making say 130rwk as opposed to a good breathing 5litre making 190rwk plus in an eseries is massive.

pm if your after any info

Hi mate, if your after more torque get rid of those e7 heads and get yourself some GT40P heads, GT40 upper and lower manifolds,65mm or 70mm t-body, ELGT or pacemaker headers, and see if that makes you smile!!! and if you can get yourself a nice cam that will be the go.
Have a look on ebay,BUT be careful as there is a lot of bulls**t artists out there, ( i found out the hard way!!), ask some mates for advice if your not sure.
Hope this helps you, :)
Cheers...

yes lol, and yeah i remember getting a quote from you for leads but I havn't been able to fund them as yet due to funding my pending wedding lol. I got a service and dynotune on thursday. Should yeild a bit more with manifold spacer and MSD gear and the underdrives hopefully. Those leads are all topgun spiralwounds but there is one stock lead there as you can see due to one of the topguns being burned out from previous exhaust manifold. :-( If you can do me a special price I may just splurge ;)

well going a bit slow atm due to trying to pay off all my debts so im clear an then i can start going crazy on this and pour some $$ into it
:)

also i have been offered a gas setup by a mate
all it needs is a tank and wiring
any ideas on what this is worth to get?
as there is a bloke local that can install it all an do all that stuff for about a grand
so any ideas on what a tank and wiring is worth

Apart from the mixer isnt there only the tank and wiring, its missing 80% of what you need.
Get it done free by the govt and get a brand new setup.

Im not trying to be unhelpful dude i was just saying that by the time you pay for a tank and wiring ,and pay to get the second hand gear installed.
You could get a brand new gas setup installed and get the whole 3000 back from the govt,so you pay nothing and get a brand new system.
Good luck with that man
Just a thought, are you saying that if you get a new system installed you have to pay an extra 800 on top of the 3000 rebate the govt gives you?
