Hey guys after some deep thinkin on what to spend my tax money on i have come to the decision of POWER. i think its time to give the EL a bit of a tweak.

It has already got a 2 1/2" redback exhaust, and the 3.45 lsd is on the way in the next couple of weeks.

Im thinking of finishing the exhaust ( extractors ), cam and possibly cold air induction.

Just would like to know what companys to go and what would be the best bang for buck.

All comments welcome

Cheers

Shauno

Do a search, it's alll covered bbefore, as for what is best performance wise and what is best value for money they often are too different things. Really depends how much you want to spend aswell...

Someone mentioned crow stage 2.. uglybob had one previously. Won't run without a chip, and even then it'll stall sometimes.
If you're not worried about money too much, why don't you get a package deal from someone. Get yourself a nice discount :)

Yeah why not? He said he doesn't care about the money :P

What I assume he means is, apparently a few people in the forums have had problems with JMMs customer service, particularly after sales customer service.

I'm just playing devils advocate :P
Can't say don't get something or do get something without some more information!
Especially seeing as JMM's cams are well proven.
