VR SS 5spd S2
Gday all I'm new to this forum. I have a VR SS 5spd in which the motor is around 80,000kms old. I have fitted extractors, exhaust, CAI and VT thermos are my current mods. It's currently around 150rwkw and I'm lookin at taking things a step further. I'm not sure what to do but my mechanic recommended larger throttle body and a cam. Not sure if a cam would be worth it unless other mods were done as well? Just want some ideas for a bit more performance at a budget of around 2.5k. Thanks all.

2500? fella, cam and memcal options are the next best thing id say.crow cams have options give them a ring or look the up on the net.if there is a bit of cash left over and you want a bit more torque change diff gears aswell try 3.45 ratio they arnt too bad and give the best of both worlds on the hiway and streetable use.

as above. Thats some good things to start with. Cams themselves arnt very dear. Its the tuning and paying for install if you dont do all that yourself. Bigger T/B id say so, dont waste your time.

edit - looking at the date and number of posts, this guy was just a blow-in and abandonned this joint.

index refference you crank pulley timing mark ,adjust the dizzy to 14-15deg advance at idle for everyday non ethanol 91-96 ron fuel,any more and you need to consider colder plugs and or 96ron minimum fuel
no need to connect the ecu jumper plug either,the whole curve will shift 4-5 degrees.
put some castrol r 5-30 in it while you at it too.

And another old post, I'd back my VP to run VERY near if not over 160 rwkw on a dyno and it's got basically nothing done to it!:)

As i finally learnt, my Senator, just on 140rwkw on a Dyno Dynamics dyno, but have whooped other 5 litres due to having a fair whack more torque!

I used to think power figures meant all, but torque wins the race!
