i'm using one, but in combination with other mods. check my ride thread. good power, lacking down low but that could be the headers a bit too.

Foam is a busy person, he is also on ebay, 103rwhp sure thats right or is it rwkw, dout it would be the headers but with extractors it gives better top end and you loose abit down low, also from it being a slug off the line could also be the way the cam is dialed in aswell, wade 992a cam will be a good chose its the highest wade cam you can get custom grind for around $220ish, might aswell do head work aswell like powerslave has its also a VP. get the cam and write down everything the car has had done to it and then get foam to do you a tune for it, also another way getting to 100kph is ditching some weight is that 8.6 on the gtech or something? or just counted off the head unit :)

its 103 rwhp, and yes i use the gtech pro rr weve done many runs with both cars. my mates vn canes mine not only on the gtech but it has a much more powerfull feel, especially in 2nd gear pull. his only has 2.5 exhaust, lsd, shift kit. and is as thrashed as can possibally be, and gets 7.1 sec to 100. ive had him drive mine and he said it woz definately underpowered compared to his. ive also driven his and i felt the same as him. im going to put the stock stall back in and see how it feels? that prob will b a waste of time, but ive run out of things to check. will go the 992a, but would like to find this lost pwr before camming.
