HOT CHIPS

FORD FAIRLANE V8 (Stage I)

Standard:

The V8 Fairlane in standard form is good at transporting a lot of car and five occupants smoothly. Red-lining at just 5000rpm, the Big Ford puts in a 10.04 second 0-100km/h time and 16.47 second quarter-mile pass (at 139.5km/h).

With chip:

The Powerchip in the Fairlane improves ignition timing. On our test car, noticeable pinging in the upper rev range disappeared, and the car became more 'driveable' from 2000-4000rpm (resulting in better upper-gear acceleration). The 'big yacht' was smoother and more responsive. It

also revved an extra 500rpm (redline extended to 5500rpm) and had enough power to wheelspin of the line. This was a stage 1 conversion - the fitment of a low-restriction air filter would help times along even more.
