hi people
ive recently started polishing my manifold alternator mount,
powersteering mount and i have a head full of ideas on what i want to do to
my 5lt to make it stand out, if you have modified/created anything in your
engine bay show it off i want to see what people have thought of, doesnt
have to be the 5lt it can be anything as long as you have made an effort.

As mentioned before, plans are lotsa chrome/polished metal. Gunna be hard gettin the manifold polished because of it being a daily driver, but it will be done! Also gunna be difficult hiding the gas set up, I have friggin hoses and wires running everywhere :twisted:

Messy, but functional. A typically untidy E series windsor engine bay:

Nah mate, the only AU stuff is the inlet manifold and throttle body. How many amps does the AU alternator pump out?
