    Default how can i make more KW on the fg strait six

    g/day guys i have a 2011 ford fg 6spd il6 non turbo and my question how can i make more power without going the turbo option. i just want to maybe boost power from 205kw on 98ron too around 225-230kw and was wondering what do you think my best options are.
    i have up to maybe $4000-5000 to play with so any idears would be great i guess extractors would be a good start so what else do you think would be worth looking at....cheers

    Full Exhaust, I think the turbo air box is a bit bigger but maybe wrong on that. Maybe the FG XR8 airbox that runs the decent size pod style filter.

    Injectors, fuel pump upgrade.

    And a tune should get you the gains you want. Find a reputable tuner that is known for good work..

    But with 4-5k you could easily turbo it....

    Unsure on the FG if theres been any significant changes, But on my old BA, Exhaust, extractors and changing to a turbo style airbox set up, made a big difference in power and economy. Combine those mods with a tune, and I would think you'd get your power gains. (Off memory airbox mods were around $200, exhaust was off a GTP $500, extractors another $500) Tune is the pricy part, but would probably make a noticeable difference!

    There was a company in Adelaide doing 2 stages 1st with airbox exhaust extractors and tune to get 235 -240 kw then cams to get 270kw but they don't do the cams for some reason anymore I have seen some others on YouTube in Sydney.
