Leave everything as is, except dump it, manual, spool, XR6T motor, front mount jammed in behind stock front bar, off the shelf 10psi tune, no BOV.
Then drive past taxi ranks dosing flatout, theyll f**k love it.

Need to ask what in hell made you buy an EX taxi FFS.

That things had more ks on it than all the pros that walk the streets in sydney all year round.

But you could change the color and put a nice set of mags on it and tint the windows and put a wing on the back.

They should pass a law that makes all taxis once they are taken out of service that they should be crushed.

Reason is they are driven into the ground and they do s**t of K's and are unsafe.

look at the a taxi's here in sydney, its nothing to see 600 or 700,000 Kms on the clock. allot of sydney taxis are lucky to be turned off, most never get turned off unless they have to refuel.

yeah it may have a few kays, just clicked over 800,000 but this thing moves, I mean really moves, will light up both back wheels when I flatten it off the lights!!! and thats on LPG!!!!!

put the C2R grille and lights etc on it yesterday and its starting to look pretty good for what it is.

and for all those knockers out there, if you find the right car... any car that drives as well and goes as well as this you would buy it too. Car only cost me $1700 and it had 6 months Vic reg. Already has passed our testing over here (drove it there as soon as we got back to Adelaide) and it passed no problems.

thanks for the ideas guys, keep them coming :)
