gday all,

just purchased a lovely looking 3.9 ltr NC fairlane off my mate that had a bit of elec probs but you get that from mates. :P

Anyways looking to give it some mods when my healthy tax check comes in and thought i would ask here for some thought on what to get.

regarding exhaust been looking at a redback 2 1/2 inch exhaust and pacemaker headers,forget the code # but they arent the comp ones.

i dont want a really loud exhaust but a nice mellow humm that would suit the lane as its a cruiser not a bruiser.

already put on a XH snorkel and airbox and thats made a big diff from the s**t pod that me mate put on(had no low down power).

the car is on duel fuel and was also wondering if i could put a nice cam in preferably suited to lpg as i maybe getting a new(reco)engine in the future.any thoughts on that?

cant think of anything else so let me know your suggestions and give some if warrented.

cheers for the replies.

Guys, from experience with the old lanes, ditch the clutch fan, and fit thermos, will make a HUGE difference. Then, other options are upgraded diff ratios, bbm, and manual conversion (made the biggest difference to the car).
