Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anybody has put the GT kits on their EB falcons and also what are the prices?

try ssv.com.au they give price for a good guide on all kits. remember freight is extra too. I was going for the GT kit on my EA. in the end the $$$ was too much, and for what was under the hood not worth it. :oops:

I read today that the EB GT bodykit reduces lift by 40% or something, was developed in a wind tunnel in England, just thought I'd sahre that.

Interesting fact


Look in the trading post regularly you will see EB GT complete kits forsale expect to pay around 2-3 grand for the kit.

ssv is a little bit of a rip off imo..
get onto awcinfo.com, those guys do them a little cheaper. Exactly the same kit.

IMO if your going to go for a GT Kit go with the bonnet it to, it looks bare without it.

i havn't got a full GT Kit..., don't want it, IMO to bulky(for me)(but orig ones look good tho), and i got another type of kit on the bottem, but if i took my GT bonnet off it wouldn't look as good, i thought about it at one time.
at the start i never liked the GT bonnets, but it grows on you after a while, makes it look tougher IMO.

But each to their own, if you like the rest of the kit go for it.

wether you get the same effect with an aftermarket is a bit doubtful

i assume it would due to the fact the ouldings are the same, im pretty sure it would just reduce lift by make the body come down more if u know what i mean and not leeting as much air in?

when i used to have my eb i was designing an under body tray to creat downforce/ minamise lift, like a f1 car got it pretty much finished in designs just had to work something out for the ducts for the fron, the back was going to be piss easy

I've seen 2 (EA, EB or ED) Falcons with the EBGT treatment - one I think was a genuine one and was a very deeeeep red of some sort (almost black) and the other was the same green as my car (Reef Green?).

The things that struck me about both was that I had to look twice to recognise them as Falcons - and also that the body kit made the cars look smaller than stock Falcon - was VERY surprised how strong that smaller car impression is.
