Welcome vika

Good start would be to check the modification guide and FAQ stickies at the top of the workshop.

Hi Vika, welcome.

Start with the little things, uni-filter or K&N panel filter.
AU tickford snorkel.
few months get some decent catback exhaust.
few months down the track get some extractors.
few months get cam/springs/vernier cam gear.

The reason I said a few months is its easier to evaluate the differences in performance, you'll appreciate it. plus easier on the hip pocket.
rushing in & start doing everything at once only end up disappointed due to higher expectation.

Hope it'll help.

Mate there's no cheap ways that'l burn ricers, if u set ur sights on being faster than turbos ul be up for alotta money! Little stuff as suggested like exhaust, intake then cam etc. are the cheapest ways to get a bit more go into her!!! :D

gotta remember proky E-series falcon VS light weight POS Jap-o import with Bolt on sick turbo power and alot of stickers. yeah they are a quick car.. look side ways at holdens as your enemy and just stir the jap cars up cause you will get your a** handed to you if you mess with the wrong guys.

Crushing commies is fun.

er hem.
POS?
Don't aim to beat turbos, they're faster. An exhaust and extrators will keep you ahead of civic, lancers, etc.
Aim for commodores, no point setting your sights to high.

i knew a guy who had an ef wagon and gave me a drag to 60 just down the road in my stock el

the wagon is 600kg heavier then the sedan and he had four guys in there. so lets say he had a tonne more.

a stage 2 crow cam and a set of pacey 4480 stractors and he kept up with me. ive got the pipes now from it but im trying to offload the cam cause it doesn't fit an au head
