Hey boys,

I am doing a project Cortina with a TICKFORD AU XR6 Turbo Engine in it.

I am looking at trying to get about 350 to 400rwks... What is needed to get this.

Can it be done with:
no head work
Turbo from Ba Xr6
Bigger injector's
and alittle bigger cam

If you want some 500HP then turbo, dish top pistons, and a well ground cam are a good start. That kind of power would require a decent amount of boost and the XR6 turbo might not be that good. It is also highly possible that some head work and manifold mods will be needed. Injectors get into the territory of more than a little bigger too.

Meh, if I were you I'd research what NizPro were changing to get the 4.0 up to 900+ with the standard bottom end. They'd be the experts after all. I'm just pointing out that trying to lift a 180kW engine into the area you want isn't going to fall into your lap without some care.

A quich look at Nizpro's site shows they have kits (http://www.nizpro.com.au/cobra_kits_main.html) available, it makes for a good read.
