hi guys, im thinking about doing some cheap mods to my standard windsor in my 97 fairlane

not wanting to spend too much though, looking around the $500 mark

what would people suggest?

it already has a 2.5 inch exhaust and i may be putting in an lsd with 3.7 gear ratio




turbo eb, 206.6rwkw on 7psi

Ride: EBII 220kw Tickford powered.

Location: Belconnen, Canberra
ACT, Australia

K&N airfilter
AU XR snorkel
Decent leads
Good quality plugs
Should get rid of most of the 500


save a few more $$$ ($1500 - $2000) and go for pacemaker/genie "tri-y" style headers, and all the above. Will give more power/economy depending on you right foot.



The car should be called "Frankenstien". EBII GLi skeleton, AU T2 220kw heart, AU2 brain, EF/EL for everything else.

1) Underdrive Pulleys

2) K&N Filter (panel filter is usually the most effective option but a pod filter can also be utilised providing it is shielded from the heat, still has a source of cold air, and is mounted to an apporpiate MAF bracket or adaptor.

3) Nothing beats a good old service, engine oil, oil filter, tranny oil, fuel filter, etc.

That should see 500 bucks gone and maybe a little more, have fun. :-)



The Past: EF Fairmont, EL Fairmont 5.0, HR Special, NF Fairlane 5.0, GSX 250-F, BA II XR8, VS3 Ute, VS2 L67 Calais

The Present: FG Egas Ute, ED XR8 Sprint, GPZ 900R
