what do you mean by that?
did you read what got done to the engine and the cam I am running, it being a T5 among other things it should see around 150 at the wheels?
did I meantion that I haven't got the car dyno'd since the engine got rebuilt

cheers
Barnsy

Wasn't really any difference, i found the 225 easier to tune with idle and the mixture. I will be putting on a 425 in the coming months....somehow

I managed a 144rwkw...with less detailed mods to the engine. so with his mod 150rwkws shouldn't be too far to reach...but I see there was a misunderstanding from this post...I guess he has already reached the 150rwkw mark with current mods.

I wonder what the power difference would be between the gas and petrol...

DO IT BARNSY!!! (If you already have...I retract this comment :lol:)

phong =P~

EDIT: Timmeh...I think you are correct...modded box cars can look noice.

Future mods will be 3.7 diff (long way off), full respray, humming and haring whether to do BBM conversion, convert to straight gas and remove all the emission gear.


I will dyno the car when I start my new job in the city and have weekends off.

with my old engine there was 10rwkw difference from petrol and lpg 114 (petty) and 104 (BBQ), but the gas hadn't been tuned properly.
Strangely enough my car runs better on lpg than petrol!

The 3.27 LSD works well with the T5, I believe it will hold the car back down the 1/4, but atm I am happy with it.
Down the track will grab a 3.7 out of a skyline and throw it in.

Its been a while since I updated this thread, pretty much the only changes are AU rocker cover, BA manual shifter.

So here are some recent pics with stock bonnet and boot, until I get the spoiler painted I will leave it off.
