I will be finnishing off the engine 2morro, but even with the cam I was running I could get close to 500km to a tank, as for the electrics yes all working, but does have the common slow/sticky front power windows, all they need is to be lubed up occasionally.
I will be doing an ecu diagnosis to check sensors etc after I give it a tune.
what I mean by finnish the engine ,I am changing the fuel pump as the old 1 is tired, and I just removed the cam & had the injectors cleaned/flow checked
so I cleaned up the engine bay while it was easy.
cheers kenny
P.S I have heaps of pics if anyone wants a more detailed look

How many kms?

Feel free to tell me to piss off, but curious, why you are getting rid of it in such a rush so cheaply if you have spent so much on it and it is such a nice car (which it looks like it is)

Kilma, i think he just wants it gone ASAP, as he is getting his new car, already ordered, and prob wants just a tad more than the dealer will give him.

it has 180,00kms, and the reason I want to get rid of it so quik is, I have decided to get a newer model with more creature comforts, power , technology etc and if I don't do it quickly I will back out and keep the o'l girl
and I have now played with windsors enough and probably wont go there again,so its time to move on & see what the modular quad cammer has going for it! and I read its based on the king of ford engines "the clevo"
so if anyone is interested PM me
it has a couple of floors, but don't they all?
by the way most of the kms are freeway ,as I travel from newy to wollongong a couple of times a week.
cheers kenny

the diff has had a bit of backlash since I bought it, needs new rear shocks ,and the tinting isn't the best.
but.... thats why it is going for this price.

Yeah i can also vouch for this car. Has s**t loads of grunt, has been really well maintained, and sounds brilliant. Like ben if i had the money and the p plate laws werent how they are, i wouldnt hesitate in selling my car to make way for this one.
Good luck with the sale kenny, hope you get what you want, and bring on the new girl.

looks like the big stripdown of fast parts is about to be attepted, the dealer won't pay for extras ,only the car, and has encouraged me to try and recoup' atleast some of the $ it has had thrown at it. You wouldn't believe how well this thing is now running now, she must have overheard one of my phone calls to the car yards!

May be interested in some of the parts if you do strip it down.

If you could put up a list of what you would be selling seperate, or PM me, would be appreciated.

Cheers
