Hi

I am just posting a link to a video I recorded last night showing the acceleration to 100. The car seems to be really struggling to get off the line. Just posting the vid to get other peoples impressions so I know if I have a problem or not. The car is a 93 eb fairmont stock apart from a 2.5 inch exhaust. btw ignore the over 100 acceleration as I backed off due to trouble holding camera plus driving:P

Thanks guys, if you think it looks ok then it puts me a bit at ease. Yeah the 1st gear ratio is stupid you could nearly do 100kmph if you reved it hard enough.

If you want better accelleration, spend $2500.00 to $3000.00 on your car

Oh one last thing what rpm is the limiter ameant to kick in on a series 2 eb. Does it even have one? At about 5250 rpm if not sooner it seems to missfire as if hitting a limiter suddenly. Scared the s**t out of me.
