    The motor has done 227kms. It is a completely stock motor with no tune done to it. But yeah I would have thought it would have made more as well. The only this it has is extractors and pod filter.

    I got my valve springs and oil pump today so not many parts left to collect before I do the cam and tune.

    When I put the 6.0L into the Tonner it made 170 AWKW through the V6 single exhaust, sounds like you were on a Honest Dyno Chris.

    I just thought with the manual and 4.11 gears it might have made a bit more. I would rather be on an accurate dyno the one that fluffs the results.

    At least you can accurately measure the increase the mods will give you

    Yeah that’s right mate. At least I will know the increase now that I have a base.

    Diff gears will mainly effect torque.

    So I have seen a few valve spring tools and though I’d try this one for shits and gigs, but hey if it works it works. I like buying random stuff to see if it works.

    That tool looks pretty sketchy.

    Make sure you engage your safety squints!

    Shit that’s an ugly power/torque curve, anything should be an improvement on that!!!

    I was alright when it was mafless tuned. I had to get a std tune done to reset the ecu as it was locked. I can feel a big difference driving it

    If you have reverted it back to stock and no longer have the MAF it will cause issues.
