Just thought id get a rough idea how much power you guys are making to the tires and what quarter mile times anmd mph?
My vk calias 308 is preety slow at a gues it would be around 90 rwhp and around a 16 sec quarter
My Rx4 made 240rwhp (13b bridge port n/a) and did a preety piss poor 13.9 @ 98 mph desperatly starving for fuel. The motor im buildeing now is a 13b peripheral port and will be putting out about 300rwhp and looking for low to mid 12's.
So what kinda power are you guys making in your commodores with wat motor and modifications, im keen to try and get this vk moving along a bit better

I would say Im making at least 160 rwkw possibly up towards 170 once I give it a tune with the aftermarket EFI in my VK.

Engine is a fully rebuilt, balenced & blueprinted injected 304, high lift cam, ACL race series rebuild kit, pacemaker headers, exhaust, after market injection & ignition computer with 4 coil packs to be installed once the car is finished & drivable.

its yet to go into the dyno or down the 1/4 but it should be pretty quick

cheers
Scott

my std ( except for 40thou pistons ) brock vk made 175.5rwhp while blowing smoke. had stuffed rings at the time but have since rebuilt the motor, still basically std just new. havent been able to take it to the strip yet but my old vl 5.0l did a 14.9 with an open diff, std trimatic and street tyres. the brocks manual with lsd and feels quicker than the vl did so at a guess id say a mid to high 14 for it.

173 over here and stock is what 73KW? so with 2.5" exhaust "advance" extractors and new leads id say 80KW as well... i like mine looking pretty and comfortable before going fast... with only 104K on this engine i aint gettin rid of it any time soon and it feels fast never driven anything more powerful so no comparisons yet

Stuff knows how much the old girl makes!. Factory it made 125 flywheel kW(168hp). So using the old saying say 20-30% drive train loss it would make 90-100 rwkW(130-140rwhp). But the motor has had a tickle, ported heads, mild cam(i think towing type cam) redline single plane manifold and 600 Vac Sec carby. Also extractors/sports zorst. I haven't had it on a dyno yet. One day i will get it on there.

I think the blue 173's had like 76kw at the flywheel.

I'm rebuilding mine with a few goodies (nothing hardcore) and I'm hoping to get around 80kw at the wheels.
