Hey fella's, just like to say this is a great site for young guys who love Fords to do some personal mods to their cars, but im inquiring about the installation of EF/EL/AU thermos on my EBII, as i hate the sound of that god damn clutch fan. :x :x On the advice of my local radiator specialist, i was told that it was not a good idea to do so as it will dramatically reduce the efficiency of the radiator's cooling. Last thing i want is to do is to cook my motor. I was just wondering if anyone (i know Voxace has) has had any experience of putting thermos on an EBII and if they have noticed a change in the motors running temp. Cheers.


I dodn't think you'll find anyone here say that it's a bad mod. :?

I fitted el thermos to my eb2 and found engine to be alot quieter,smoother,quicker warm up and some power increase. Temp sits on quarter most of the time and rises to half when idlin in traffic for a while. Cost $270 for fans and $40 for adjustable temp switch. Also put 82 degree thermostat,ef thermostat cover housing,ef top hose and xh snorkel. No dramas so far after 9 months. :D :D :D

How does the wade cam compare to the jmm cams there is such a massive difference in price and i've read the jm cams secrets are out. Also how much should a vernier cam gear cost?

Mr Ed.

Veneir Timing Kit is about $ 180 give or take some.
Regarding the JMM cam kits, is like comparing apples and oranges. I think JMM might get a little more extra power. He has found ways of getting bigger cams into the E-series without messing up the idle too much, where others may have not. But the price is higher.

For a mildey worked car, I would go with wade.

Or seen with YobboFord's E-series wagon with Cresent Motorsport upgraded cam (stage one from memory) ... there was a 30rwkw increase with the installation of this cam alone.

Not a bad improvement for cam alone. Idle is perfect ... no upgraded ECU needed at all. And at a pretty decent price.

Was installed at the dyno day recently ... power figures were:
120kw before
150kw after.

I think on the same day/same dyno it got an extra 7 or 8 kW from just the cam swap.

I think he managed those higher figures through a bit of tweaking later on... yes/no?

It was re-run on the same dyno that was used on the day. But at Mainline's premises (the dyno used at the dyno day was a portable dyno)

The timing was tweaked a little to get the cam to work to it's optimum (which has to be done anyway with all cam upgrades).

There was an instant 8rwkw increase on the day ... a couple of days later after a little bit of tweaking it was 30rwkw more than the "before" figure".

I recently saved up some money working as a TA and was conisdering selling my EBI falcon! its ok but, i changed my mind. i found a car that had been in a prang that was being sold for 250 i'm pretty pleased its an EA. so i'm going to transfer the gas system across on to my car and work the spare engine. At the moment i'm driving a 3.9 and getting just over 10km per litre. thinking of getting extractors and exhaust now just wondering is it a good idea to buy new or secondhand? i got like 2500 to spend. i want to improve her breathing as well how do i go about that? just a bigger snorkel, what can i do aboutthe intake manifold? i want to get a high flo filter and thermos and a new cam. I live in WA if any one knows some good places to get these things/or have installed i'd really appreachiate it. My engines approaching 400,000 clicks and shes a beaut. also i want to put a manual gear box in. will that screw up my computer? is it an easy operation going from 4 spd auto to 5 speed manual?
