I've just picked up a 5.4 litre 220kw BA falcon and am wondering who to trust to get the exhaust, extractors and edit done by. I've got a year and a half of factory warranty left so as soon as that's over I'm booking her in for some work. I'm in Melbourne and would like to know of any recomendations and a rough price tag.

You've got 18 months to wait?
Come back in 17 months and ask lol.
But anything you need go and see Paul at Professional Exhaust in Airport West.

Seriously mate, go and see Craig at Aussie Car Enhancements at Melton. He can turn an 5.4 XT into a 13.2 sec car for a package price of $4300. That includes a full di fillipo exhaust, a new intake pipe and airbox and finally a bluepower flash tune.

What do you mean Flash Back, I know in the event of an accident, it is nearly impossible to figure out if the computer was altered or not unless they tear it out and look into it closely, but my local Ford dealer was adament that anything that isn't factory fitted voids the warranty. I think I might talk to Ford directly for the definative answer.
