More power needed.... Which way to go
« on: August 11, 2013, 13:33:18 PM »
Thinking of going for more power out of my 24v v6, this is it on track on Friday there before power steering oil leaked everywhere

Currently running standard engine with air filter and custom exhaust. Had it on a rolling road on Monday past an it made 181bhp 235 lb/ft
If I went to different tuners rolling road it would have been 190bhp the tuner told me, he said he has his set more accurate as most like to put the figures up a bit.
So my question is what route should I go?? The car is used for drifting so needs to be suited to that good torque and high reving. I had thought stand alone management of some sort, throttle bodies and cams, but for the cost involved I do t know if the power gain would be worth it?
Had also thought on super charging and twin turbo's. I'll not lie I also thought on taking the easy route an fit an sr20 Nissan engine.
So all advice welcome please
I am strongly swaying towards the twin turbo path tho 2 td04 turbos and a stand alone management because of cost to power gained...

The other one I have been thinking of is a 3.0 duratec engine as with driving a st220 mondeo daily I like the power of them.
But go with the jaguar version as its rwd layout and higher bhp as standard with water pump at the front. Also lighter than the cossy lump.
What power can be got from these with fitting a set of throttle bodies and cams?
Might be a better path for me so I can stay N/A

Been lookin through few websites an have seen a few jags for sale at reasonable enough money. So could be the new heart plan. Nice modern engine.
Is there any good websites for tuning the likes I these engines? Maybe more so in America?
What about the v8 jags?
