i'd go for the typhoon take. i dont know much about throttle bodies but from what i understand they're the same as the i6??? and are pritty good. unless you are going to go some big engine mods leave it.

PH 4495 - COMPETITION HEADER from pacemaker. if not 4490's.

i wouldn't think it'd have and lsd, being optional and all but there are two ways to find out, the tag on the back (should have LSD stamped on it or something) but not sure. or give it revs and jam it to drive

and we want picks!!!

Sorry i can be more help

From what I understand fiftyone is right with the throttle body, you dont really need a bigger one. Ive heard of people getting it done for not any noticable benefit. Maybe consider it down the track after some better bang 4 ur buck mods. For now id just go the phoon intake/k&n filter/pacies 4495/exhaust and top it off with a custom flash tune. Thats the path ill be following shortly :twisted:

Ive heard good things about redback exhaust, and that they can be found at a reasonable price on ebay if your lucky

Please don't rev the thing then chuck it into gear... please :(

Jack up the rear of the car, then turn one wheel. If it's firm and the other wheel spins the same way, it's an LSD. If not, then it's either a dead LSD or just a single spinner ;)

Get the Typhoon intake, pacemaker extractors(either set), a good metal cat(Metal"Cat the best), and a 2 1/2 inch exhaust/ or a second hand XR6T or XR8 cat back. With the money saved get a flash tuner.

yeah they are a rip off mate, FTG auto salvage can sell you both the bigger mouther xr6 turbo snorkle and the typhoon one for your car

Check the tech docs out (follow the link at the top of the top of the page) for mods for your ba including the typhoon snorkle

Or if you want to find out if its lsd just lay unde neath and see if it has the lsd plate hanging off of the diff, all ford diffs and all bought are supposed to come with a tag plate that goes inder the filler hole nut.

not shabby when you think the best an e series could do was 157 new at the firewall

Nar not all BA's are LSD, the XR6T and XR8's are standard and everything else i think is optional from ford.
Please what ever you do never EVER rev and Auto in N and drop it in to D....Please dont ever do that, i mean if you want half your box in the driveway then by all means go a head. Who ever told you to do that is a dumb C***.
If you want to know if it is a LSD then have a look for a tag at the back of the diff but if u cant see it then u can either jack up the whole back end of the car so both back wheels are off the ground or u can just jack one of the back wheels up. If u do both then pull the hand brake off and have the car in N and spin one of the wheels any direction u want and have a look at the wheel n the other side and if it spins in the SAME direction as u are spinnign the wheel then it is a LSD but if it is spinnign in the other direction then it isnt.
If u only jack up on side have the car in N and the hand brake off and ir you can spin the wheel freely thenit is a NON-LSD but if you cant spin it then it is a LSD.

Have fun and i am lookin forward to hearing how the car goes

Griffo
