I own a VS HSV MANTA, 5 speed, 185i
I want more power around 40-50kw

-will i need to reinforce gearbox?
-will i need to change diff/tailsharft?
-Stroker or Blower?

please give me some ideas.....anything that might help me reach my target, also inc estimate of cost if known.

Cheers Fellas

mate your gearbox ad diff and tailshaft should be fine as long as your not draggin it all the time
as for stroker or blower it is really up to you both shoud give you the power figure your chasing and your probably looking at the $5000 mark for a good complete stroker or blower setup

stroking will not make 50kw, but a blower will, you would be lucky to make 20 by stroke alone.

i thought stroking gave more than that but anyway you could even fit an aftermarket computer to give you more you will be surprised how much power you can get from a tune

How come Holden dont tune their chips to get more performance in the first place?

you would be lucky to gain about 20KW from an aftermarket ecu, we use haltec in the 5.0's
