Hey guys, what are some (cheap) performance (or any) mods for my wagon?

At the moment she's a stock '92 Aussie import, with the front bench seat and column shift auto.

All I've done since buying is put in a decent stereo and alarm :P

Im guessing its a 6?...

Extractors, 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust, cam, basic intake mods should give you a bit of a decent kick. Then get a good set of shortened shocks all round with lowered springs, wagons dont handle too well in stock form lol

Dude they are aussie made!..

Manual conversion, shorter diff gears lowering blocks in the a**, shorter springs in the nose.

this will get it moving a bit better for you. Find yourself an EA box and 6 bolt flywheel, better 1st gear ratio for getting the wagons a** moving.

Hmmmm, what can you do to an EB Wagon.

Click on my Wagon build thread in my signature for a idea or two.

For the price of a set of extractors you can get a cam for it. A cam would also provide a hell of a lot more difference than a set of extractors. As the saying goes, Timing is everything.
