As most of u know i have a smiko white '94 model ED falcon. There are quite a few mods done to it already including:

Molded ford symbol with flames in the roof lining
Crow cam stage 2
4 wheel Disc Braking and ABS
6 Stacker Alpine unit and head deck
2 6x9s in back parcel shelf
ED classic mags wit madisons 225x45x15
sway bars
T5 Gearbox
2 1/2inch s/s exhaust, turbo genie muffler and hollowed out cat
genie extractors
Chipped ECU
White face plates
Trip computer
Blue footwell neons
Neon washer nozzles ;)
and alot of other random stuff that i cant remember.

Anyway to cut a long, boring story short... Today i bought a new ride...
Its a diamond back Joker lol, best BMX u can get ;) haha not realy but it will do me. I have committed to riding everywhere this year in an effort to keep my license and do up the old ED.

What i want to do is make this the best god damn ED in the country and now im pushing it everywhere im not spending fuel money lol This is the plan for the ED so far...Please give me suggestions on what else could make this an insane car...

1. Body kit (GTO kit from Canberra Car Stylings im thinking)
2. Respray (Pearl Black with the body kit being painted the same but with a lava effect airbrushing)
3. King Spring Ultra Lows
4. New head unit (pioneer possibly with DVD screen etc.)
5. Lether FPV bucket seats and rear seat.
6. Black interior (All plastics, carpet, rooflining)
7. Car computer in center console
8. 19 inch rims (no idea what ones tho yet, suggestions?)
9. BA Bonnet bulge
10. Engine Bay Detailing and resprayed pearl black
11. Full engine rebuild (pistons, rings, bearings, headwork etc.)
12. Polish the engine metal parts
13. General engine clean up (Braided hoses, etc.)
14. Pacemaker Extractors
15. New exhaust (no idea about the best so help please :S ....)
16. Turbo/Twin turbo??? (Absolute novice in this area so please help)
17. New cam (RPD? CROW?)

Thats about all i have planned at the moment. Any advice, tips, brand namesn suggestions u have please let me know. This is going to be one massive year so ill keep u all updated with the progress and LOTS of fotos!!!

sif earlier e series didn't come in black.
you clearly have no idea. either choose NA or turbo otherwise you buy stuff and keep changing it.
best to save up all yo money and do the turbo engine, and owrk everything else around it.

i think u need to set a budget and a more specific goal.

u can say best god damn ed in country but if u only have 10g to spend impossible to get all that stuff, seeing as most people in the forced thread section state don't bother attempting a turbo if u don't have at least 10grand to spend just on that setup. sure it can be done for less but its a ballpark figure for a novice.

as i said set your goals a bit better, basically
Body/Looks - $???
Interior/Sound - $???
Performance/Mechanical - $???
total $???
and put them in priority order.
then it will be alot easier to work out what exactly u need to buy.

as u seem to have a fair few mods anyway probably easiest to reuse or sell to upgrade them.

If you like washing your car every weekend then paint it black if youcouldn't be stuffed washing it then paint it white. My ED is pearl black and if you live in the bush like I do then you will be washing it every weekend just like I do. But pearl black does look s**t hot when its clean and polished just don't scratch it.
