just bought an el fairmont ghia, my last car was an ef futura so im pretty stoked with my new car.

anyways when my other car was ran into and thus written off i removed basically everything i could before insurance towed it.

so before i go about sprusing my baby up i just want to confirm that the pacemaker extractors and lukey exhaust will fit to suit the xr6 or tickford enhanced engine that my car has, and whether the shocks and king springs from the ef will be right.

im sure they will knowing ef/el basically same, but just making sure ya know :)

also does anyone know of posts about rolling wheel arches?

anyways cheers for replies, and you will be seeing pictures very soon :D

Your EF parts should be a straight swap onto your EL,
Make sure you renew all gaskets on the exhaust system,
and check shock rubbers for splitting and cracks, replace if needed.

Nice choice =) Mad_Falcon (= but you may have to change to =) Mad_Ghia (= :mrgreen: The spring and shock rubbers should be fine as mine still are. You may find that it will sit a bit lower with the springs out of the EF as the ghia is a little heavier especially with a tow pack. It wouldnt happen to be sparkling burgandy by any chance!!
