if you read the stickies at the top they are very helpful... they even go as far to tell you that the best bang for your buck to start with is full exhaust and a regrind cam :P

XH snorkel is a good start followed by clear indicators and clear AU side repeaters.

Ride: ef fairmont turbo

Power: 213 rwkw

Location: melbourne

first ild say lower the car with lows $300
then put a 2.5 exhaust $250
then put a lsd with a higher ratio 4.11 if auto probly wont have to worry to much if you have a manual it would set you back about $1000 if you dont allready have a limited slip diff. but i garrantie you itl be the best $1000 youve ever spent
for about $1500, youve got your self a car that looks,sounds and goes good

Another easy mod is changing the auto gear knob to a EF/EL one.....Super easy mod!
I think Bunter did a doco in the tech section about it.

Yay, I'm almost halfway through the pissy beginner's mods! w00t.

I'm really interested in getting a regrind and the clear indicators, etc. will come after tinting.

When you got your cars lowered, did you go with new shocks to suit, or just new springs?

always go new springs to suit the amount you are lowering by. see Joe at crescent motors about a cam, but get the snorkel on, then the extractors and zorst first. afterwards, look at manual then ensure lsd and perhaps diff gears if you need them. head work later on. dress it up along the way. clear indicators, side repeaters cause you have them etc etc

If its auto then best bang for buck mod would be 4.11 single spinner or LSD diff.

Cam and exhaust wont help much with the s**t loooong first gear. But the diff gears will make it feel like a new car

but if you plan on converting to manual in the future, then dont go higher than 3.7 diff gears
