im wanting to clean up the engine bay and get rid of those awful looking heater hoses behind the inlet manifold. If i just take them out then i will have no heater, not good.

ive heard about hot rodders fitting electric heaters, so im thinking has anyone ever put one into an ef xr8.

ive done a google and fordmods search but nothing useful comes up.

any help is much appreciated

cheers

arn't they like a bit barrel under the dash, pretty sure i've seen them in old cars. can't imagine much room to put one in an ef, plus i'd be wondering on there avaliability these days (i'm sure there avaliable still, but for how much? as they'd not be very common any more).

IN THE 30S THEY USED THE EXHAUST gases to heat the heaters,the electric one seems a bit small for ef interior,the rest are still water systems.
