Ride: EL Fairmont Ghia V8 Turbo

Power: 303 rwkw

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

Cold Air Intake
Exhaust - extractors, cats, muffler and 2 1/2" tail pipe
Cam

That should get her moving along fairly nicely and wont put too much of a dent in your pocket, probably about $1500 bucks worth of work there.

Then you could always add:
Tint
Wheels
Kit
Stickers
to make it go faster!!!!

Enjoy modding the EL

No worries. In regards to a twin cam, just buy a BA. Apparently there is a mob in Qld that makes heads for a twin cam to put in the EL's but I don't think it's worth the effort, especially if you are only going to be doing relatively mild mods and got a small budget.
Wade cams do a changeover on cams for around $120, better off doing that - and in the process, don't forget to tell them your from Fordmods.com cause they'll give you the $120 changeover which is discounted.
