BPT or streetbuilt racing are the 2 places in WA I would be heading to.

Streetbuilt first, Message Scaffy on these forums.

BTW, Opt 20, there is no extra power there, its just a stock 302, Opt 20 relates to gearbox "tune" and light features and what not.

But, you know who to contact now.

option 20 is the police issue.

but yea no power bonuses. just no speed limit and little things.

as has been said, BPT or Streetbuilt would be places to start.

also depending on what you want done if you are mechnically minded you can do some diy as there is plenty of info on here.

um no to sure atm but for a v8 it is kinda slow off the mark. so i think thats more gearbox and diff related then motor. but yer new cam and maybe remap the computer if it can be done? something that will give me a few extra hp. i pretty sure its only done 100,000km but i think the last owner said they had done a rebulid to it but i just didnt get repicets from him so i am un sure. the other thing i was wondering is dose b&m do rip shifters that can be fitter to the el gearbox?

Isn't it (Option 20) an auto? How would you fit the manual 'ripshifter' to that?

1st gear in the BTR auto and the stock diff ratio is what kills these off the mark. Look at a set of 3.9 gears to get it moving.

See the guys at Streetbuilt Racing in Wangara I'm sure they'll be able to assist you.
