How do the Aussies go so fast

The Aussies have a lot more experience with these cars then we do. The attached thread to Chipmaster will give you guys some ideas as to how they are doing it - Project Monaro. It is extremely informative and gives you both dyno charts & strip times to back up their conclusions. It also kills some "myths" going around in the States as to what the optimal set ups are for NA engines.
