Hey all, im bored :D

So im jumping on the band wagon and am showing what ive done to my Tickford EL XR6

I bought the car march 2003, and at the time had the wheels that are still on it, 2.5" Walker (now called Lukey) and tint. Looked nice and tidy. i promised myself at the time that all i was going to do to it was put a cheep set of extractors on it and leave it as is...

Image

From a stock 215fwhp, it aint a bad car form factory. Now with 315fwhp with some mods, its way more exciting to drive :D

ImageImage

The main go fast bits that were used were a custom intake manifold with twin E-Series 61mm thrott's, a custom ground cam done by Sure Cam and a EMS 8860 ecu to run it all. So basicaly i blew my promise when i got the car

With this setup, response is instant, power/tourque is on tap and fuel ecco aint too bad
Not bad for a N/A taxi anyway, and shocks some ppl from the lights too. Along way off being "quick" but isnt too bad on the street.
Has not been down the 1/4 in about a year, but last run was 14.62, but should be a mid to low 14 now *fingers crossed

Image
The exhaust is something cool that i havent seen on a late model falcon yet, it dumps before the diff :D gives it a nice note ;)

The suspension has also been upgrded with Koni's and king springs. Also bushed up with Nolathane and next on the list is a F/R Whiteline sway bar's. For its weight it handles good and it should running on P-Zeros (235/45/17). It runs DBA cross drilled/slotted disc's up front to give it more "Woahh!!"

The alloy tail shaft i had ballanced dus to im scared that it will break at high RPM, bloody falcon one piece shafts :dry:
the gear box an diff have never been opend, even tho the box needs a rebuild asap(T5). With a HD clutch, is good on the street and still driveable in carparks ect...

Along with a nice stereo and some body/interior styling (IMO) it looks n sounds ok.
Ive done most of the work myself, its not that hard to figure out s**t, just gotta read stuff and ask questions.

The next step is a nice lil turbo set-up which is under planing atm (400rwhp, still streetable but quick)

Image
With a GT35/40 and FMIC should be sweet :D :lol: :lol: :lol:

If all your work comes out looking as good as that twin throttle set up then thats motervation enough to put a great fat turbo and more chrome piping everywhere. Top job mate . :D
Ps. can you make some more for the rest of us invalids :wink:

cool looking car mate.
i've been trying to work out what the red sticker is on the drivers door then relised its a reflection of someones jumper lol.
personally i think that the bonnet scoop would look better with one being a vent. but that's just individual taste
aside from that that really is a wicked looking rid! and i hope my wagon matchs that sorta quality work in another year!
tiop job and well done!
