Hey mate,

Welcome to fordmods. There is a sticky at the top of this forum with just about everything you need to know for modding your e-series. But for ease of reading, ill give you a few tips.

2.5" Mandrel bent catback with a set of headers/extractors should set you up nicely. Prices range, if you ebay it you could probably get sorted for around $500.

Window tint (although not your power/note option) is a good one, can make a huge difference to the look and will also help with the temp inside the car over summer.

Air intake upgrade, a few of the boys here could give you more info but there is big gains to be had from this area.

Longer term with a little more cash, get some diff gears and suspension upgrades with a good set of rims and you'll have a nice looking e series.

Post a pic up.

Cheers,

Dodd

read the sticky's at the top.

A problem with gas systems is they have very restrictive intake systems. I don't think this can be helped though unless you run dual mixers or gas injection ($$$). Someone who actually runs/knows more about it can probs give you tips on using gas.

As for spending money, shop around for exhaust. Headers/cat/catback shouldn't cost more than a grand, I got my pacemaker 4480's, metallic cat and 2.5in system sorted for less than $900 although fitted it myself. Any headers should do as long as they don't have press bends.

After this get your diff gears changed, or a cam.

sounds good as what other people have said, 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust with highflow metal cat and Pacemaker 4480 extractors. You will gain 15-20rwkw from that exhaust system. Id go down to Ford and grab an XR6T snorkle for a bit more throttle response aswell, they are usualy $30-40

Good luck with it.

Hey mate and welcome,
If i was you i would shop around and get extractors, hi flow cat and a 2.5" exhaust system. As said before this shouldnt cost you more then 1000, how good are you with the tools and all that, ie can u do some work yourself???
Also from memory E series cars with duel fuel cant get the Pacie 4480 extractors, you will need to get the 4499's which i have on my old ED XR6. Just as good really. From memory they are better for the auto's, susposed to give better mid range.....

Then get a air intake, this shouldnt cost much, Max $150 i would say....

After that you would prob be better off saving your cash again and getting prob diff gears.

Hope this helps, and post some pics

The last post in this thread was 7 1/2 years ago. Don't think he should be on P Plates now (we hope :lol: ).
