Howdy ive just recently bought my first falcon, all my mates have VLs VPs etc so keen to show them what fords made of.

Ive got a EBll xr6 tickford manual. ive done 3 to 2 extractors right through but other then that nothing else, keen to do some small mods if possible to increase my performance? keen to turbo it one day but until then im wondering if theres any mods i can do to build up towards that in the mean time?

any advice would be appreciated :)

First of all welcome to the forums mate :wink:

There is a couple of threads in here on popular mods that can be done on the 6's like THIS that will be a useful read. Lots of good info in that link.

I see you have fitted extractors, what exhaust are you running behind it?

A few mods I'd recommend are improving the air intake setup and getting a mild regrind cam fitted. For the intake, either find yourself an EA intake tube (from throttlebody to airbox) or make one up using an alloy or stainless bend and some silicon joiners. You could also go as far as ditching the standard airbox and making up a custom one to house a decent sized pod filter. A good cam will give you a decent gain so I'd definitely recommend that. Maybe pick up a spare camshaft from a wrecker like Pick-a-Part and get a mild performance profile ground on to it. Places like Franklin Cams in Auckland can grind a profile onto a cam (which you will have to provide) for around $200, just tell them what you have and what improvements you are after and they will sort you out.

BTW, good to see some more young guys around NZ getting in to something other than jap imports :lol:

hey cheers for the replies..

its just straight through two inch, not really any exhuast?

whats the deal with the EA tube, is it a certain diameter? coz im keen to give it a go myself with buying some pipe cheap through work at trade price.
yeah had the cam idea in mind from a mate, went to pick a part about 2 weeks ago and could only find one EB and it was pretty well stripped haha

yeah haha not all of us out there like hondas with big bores :D

You can get a 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust from a few places, will breath a lot better and give a nice exhaust note.

Here's a pic showing the comparison of the EA intake tube VS EB/ED intake tube (taken from CJH's build thread :P )
EA on the left..

If you can find them at Pick a Part you will pay around $5 for it, so it's a cheap alternative to making up something. If you can get cheap prices on piping (3" diameter pipe should be sufficient), by all means go for it, a smooth mandrel bend will most likely flow better than an EA tube.

Also, camshafts are interchangeable between EA - early EL so if you're looking for one to send away for a regrind, you're not just limited to an EB camshaft :wink:

Not sure what Pick-a-Part branch you went to, but the one in Mangere had quite a few falcons last time i went so might be worth a look..

The early EB's got the EA 3.9 motor though so that might be why it has the EA style intake tubing. The EA tube is definitely the one on the left :wink:

just like my EB is a S1 so it has a 3.9L and the bigger tube. and the SVO is an EA so that explains that. so all i have to do on both is XH snorkels and i'm done

The tickford engines did get a revised cam profile to perform a bit better than the non-tickford engines, but it would be a very minimal difference between the 2. Besides, the Tickford models also got other upgrades along with the cam and only managed to put out a few kw's more than the standard models.

It pretty much just slots right in. Only extra thing you will need with a regrind cam, is extra shims. The shims just make up for the amount ground off the cam so you get the correct clearances, otherwise you will experience lots of rattling and tapping from the rocker gear. The person who grinds the cam will usually tell you how much was ground off the cam and/or how much extra shim you need.

You could also fit a vernier cam gear which will allow you to fine tune the cam timing, but it's completely optional. If it's a mild cam you won't have to worry about upgraded valve springs or anything like that.
