Hi pplz. I just got my EL Falcon 2 months ago and getting a job quite soon. Was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to to do to the car first. I want to make it look good, sound tough and have heaps of power.

Cheers to all. :P

for looks... new wheels, dump it on its a** and full exhaust system.

i no lukey have some mean sounding exhausts but id recommend pacemaker headers

after that a simple sterio (decent head unit and amp) replace the factory speakers. no need to go too far out in my opinion. u would be amazed wat after market speakers can do to the sound of your sterio system.

and a sub 2 :)

what the f**k is it with ppl not searching through the tonnes of these threads?

in any case,

to sound tough, get a 2.5" catback exhaust (lukey or redback) 1 muffler, 1 resonator.

can also put on a set of pacemaker extractors which will give you some more power.

also get a new cam, wade cams have a good wrap and plenty of information about them on this forum.

welcome to the site mate.
theres is plenty you can do to an EL.
blackout the windows 35% tint is the darkest legal.
lower it on a set of superlows and put some nice wheels on it.
tint the lights.
extractors 2 & 1/2'' exhaust.
for more power get a head & cam combo.
check out CMS threads on this site.
also checkout the SA CRUISE thread, theres a meet&great cruise on soon, come say hi and have a look at what we are doing to our fords.

I am sure he has done it before so that he doesn't have to annoy people with the exact same question that has been answered plenty of times before.

But back on topic.

Welcome aboard BOB*888.

For looks wise (not so much practicality) you can lower her with super lows, but got to watch out for some speed humps. You can go low all round with some nice rims and it will be more practical in certain situations. Tint the windows and if you really want you can get a body kit for it...that's if you can find a complete kit.

For sound, get a set of extractors, a 2.5" exhaust system and for much better sound as well as an increase in performance you can get a performance cam. Those will definitely make the car sound a little bit more worked as well as having more power. If you can afford it, get it chipped with a rough cam and maybe some head work. Just depends how much money you can spend...since you said you just got a job I am thinking you don't have too much to play with for a little while.

phong =P~
