Hey guys, i have been searching through galleries trying to look at different set ups for EF/EL's, but can only find a few (plus there are alot of pages to go through!)
I was wondering if some of you would like to post some pics of your engine bays, just to get a fair idea of what options i can do to my car.

I have a EF XR6 on gas... and want to do some upgrades to it soon. i was reading the Mods Topic (which is very helpful), but i want to know if i should be wary of anything just because i am running gas...or is it just the same.

Cheers Guys

Mines pretty much stock except for the K&N Pod Filter, I've now removed all the old intake parts (box and snorkel).

Lukey.. get rid of that POD filter as its doing *NOTHING* for your car. and those washer leds. cut that bloody cable off! lol

Oh on that note. the EF intakes really restrict, up to 7rwkw .. try get a mandrel bent, au or el intake! Better fuel economy too

why'd you remove the box and snorkel? youd get colder air to the pod with it still there!

i'll try and get around to taking a new picture of my enine bay soon, but therre's not much to worry about your LPG, i found i had to have it retuned after inatke mods as it was stalling, but everything else has been fine!

Hehe, I might hold you to that. Still got lots of bits to track down before I do anything though.

Anyways, off topic. Let's see some more bays :)
