hey there guys after the lastest fordmods event at heathcort drags which was a night to remember and my first time down the strip. for a stock EA i pulled out a 16.72 witch i like for now.
i have decided to make some mods to the car as soon as i have the $$$
the mods that i will be getting are :

1. K & N filter
2. larger snorkle for better air flow into the engine
3. cam
4. Extractors
5. 2.5" mandrel bent / mild steel catback zorst that would bolt straight up to yours if you are interested - BA XR tip on the end ( that im getting off dcstraight, once again thanks buds )

if you guys thinks that im missing anything that would be good plz let me know

scrap all those ideas and get a manual conersion You should be able to get a manny for under 1k installed.

A manual conversion will make more difference then all those mods combined :D

Well said.

OR save your cash for a complete engine swap???

But yeah, realistically, the manual conversion will be your best bet :)

i would have thought you would be at least in the very low 16 to very high 15s with a 5 speed.

what was the 60ft time like?
you should be able to run closer to a flat 16 with an ea s-pack i would think.
