hey cuda what % of that increase could you attribute to the headers? ie would you attribute any power gain without a tune? theres two variables there but impressive gains nonetheless. I know with stock 304 and pacemaker competition series they are much more responsive and feel like the breathe a lot easier so i can totally understand what you mean. cheers
Pretty sure 426cuda used the Roto-Fab system.
Sorry all, I forgot to mention, yes I have a roto-fab installed.
I think the bulk of the gains netted so far are in the tune. Sure bolting on the headers and CAI adds a bit of power. But, until the tune is done, replacing the torque limiting OEM components doesn't change much. Because the stock tune is based on them being installed. Conversely, a tune with no other mods will provide greater benefits, than the bolt ons and no tune IMO. Of course combining both bolt ons and tune, will give a greater increase again, as the tune can be taken further, e.g. more timing, due to greater induction and exhaust flow.
I'm going to take a punt and say the next tune with hi-flow cats will see a little over 300rwkw.
It's a bloody joy to drive with the extra grunt. The poor Bridgestone 050's are copping a hiding but!
I had to replace mine at 27,000 kms.
i dont think i ever got that far in my VE.
will be hard to tell in my VF as i had to replace a rear tyre due to a puncture, so replaced both
and on a staggered setup they will no only do stearing duties
I sold my original 050 wheels with 30kkm and still had at least 10kkm till indicators. Now I got almost worn to indicator hsv contis and they are scary on the back of a ute. Trying to get 5kkm out of them before I upgrade to ps4s.
If I understood correctly your alluding to no front to back rotation right?
Currently sat on 52500km on the Bridgestone on mine with regular rotations and can't wait to get the noisy things off
yeh i got 50,000kms out of a set of bridestones 17" on a VZ SS manual ute
looks like i missed a w, "now* only do"
That's pretty good tbh wear rating considered
Love the look of your Spitfire with the power decal on the bonnet. Maybe I should of gone Spitfire over the white with red highlights......
I added the HSV 340 headers, cats and center section to my MSE and also added the HSV airbox which has the pipe going directly to the butterfly, I also fitted some marriage savers and my car sounds pretty good without going overboard.
Out of interest, the headers fitted with no mods whatsoever.
The L/H headers cleared the oil/coolant heat exchanger?
only mod that had to occur was to grind a bit of the flange down at the header/cat to create a greater clearance between it and the oil cooler. The flange was too wide.
Yeah mate. It's close but it definitely clears.
Is there black roofs on all the Motorsports? I’ve never seen a SOAG VF with a black roof.
My Director has a black roof and is SOAG.
Happy with the look? I have a SOAG Redline coming very soon. It has HF20's on it so kinda a similar look.
The redline looks good in SOAG. The Red Brembos stand out.
