pacemaker extractors are the premium brand (quite costly)

genies are the cheaper alternative (but are very good).

can get a hi flow cat if you like (if you decide to just punch out the honeycomb centre, beware that if caught you are going to get the book thrown at you and it isn't pretty).

2.5" catback exhaust (make sure you get a mandrel bent exhaust). lukey or redback are the main brands people buy.

If you did all that, you'd be looking @ around $1,000-$1,3000 (depending where you get it from).

That's the easiest mods to do, plus it will allow the engine to breathe better which means itll rev easier so that'll tide you over for a while.

also, wack a K&N air filter in, they flow better and you can clean them when needed rather than buying new filters.

Can anyone post up a link to a site that shows how to do the home job for the cold air induction? And if someone has had pacemaker extractors and a 2.5 inch catback exhaust put on there EA-ED could you post up model numbers so i can order the parts Please

Here's what I did to my ED......
I fitted a XH snorkel
Clear indicators
AU3 clear side repeaters
EF/EL T-Bar handle
Those are just a few basic mods that can make your ED better.....And they are cheap and easy mods too.
