Gidday, Nice work there. And good to see most of it was done by the owner. Just the way we like it.

Re the GRA carb, pre turbo, was it a beneficial mod? Am considering one for the Wagon.

Cheers
BenJ

Nice car mate, Are the side skirts off of a BA? If so was it a hard job making them fit?

Is the turbo fitted on extractors or is there a manifold you can buy to suit bolting on a turbo?

Car looks good white, but yeah green looked good too

Cheers

Josh

on a naturally aspirated 6... not overly.
i mainly did it in prep for turbo, i gained a little bit of power going from my old setup, but the car was still a slug on LPG.

it only managed a 15.9 with 2.5" exhaust, pacey comps, wade 1004 110 cam and 3.45 LSD.

Fuel economy wasnt as good as the old setup either.

however.. in saying that, Petrol was no quicker so most likely not the GRA carb's fault :P

Yeah, BA XR Side skirts.
Pretty easy to make them fit.
they need to be shortened about 20-30mm, and a little bit trimmed along the top so they side against the guard properly.

There are a few turbo manifolds available to buy these days, Snort Performance is probably the most popular.
Check ebay every now and then as they do come up.

No idea exactly.
I never looked into it.
Perhaps contact www.dwcustoms.com and see what they say.
They were developing a kit for the front of late model falcons.
