Exhaust...2.5" $160-180
Extractors $400 fitted
K&N Pannel Filter $100ish

Save the rest its gona cost a lot to run lol...the rest u really cant get anything much for your money...make sure you get a decent oil in it other than that id say maybe get a full flush done to your transmission & band adjustment...theres a guy in cessnock that does it for about $190 for the entire thing...some people are asking several hundred for the same job...i shopped around and that was the best price i could find.

where to start ey?? well it depends...

If you want power and noise for the 2.5 exhaust and extractors and the k&n element for your filter. and there is a noticeable gain in power following this. my car has it done and i can't imagine it without it.

If you're after handling and looks get yourself some super low king springs for about $130-140 a pair (f+r) and a set of monroe gt gas (or whatever you wanna use) and whack them underneath it. it'll stiffen it up like a b**ch and you'll look at all the other standard height falcons towering over you. this transforms the handling hugely and makes the car much more fun to drive, though if you're after conmfort and often have kids etc. in the back forget you may want to consider the first option.

oh and either way as the others said try to spend some money on cooling the beast down.

just a tip

read the pre mixed coolant lable very carefully as most of them are not meant for cars built after 1986 i think it was.

for the e series cooling need the strait anti freeze anti boil and the rest water.
