Also there is a bolt right at the back, near the firewall, it can be a b**ch to get in an EF, so i would assume it is the same in the AU

ok so im nearly there. was hoping to have her done by end of feb. but due to working at a winery. vintage has kicked in early and is punishing me a bit. as far as time goes.

but here is where im at. i have purchased new EV6 injectorplugs to suit rather than my dodgy wiring job i was thinking of doing. i will have them spliced on top my old injector loom. im trading the EDIS setup with terrorist ghia. so i will have better crank balencer etc... all front end acc are changed over minus balencer.... waiting on my BBK 75mm throttlebody to rock up from bpt motorsport. then i will put the intake manifold back on and send it to adelaide to be dyno tuned... also waiting on a responce from choco as to whether i can trade my old box with 3.73 gears... getting so close... i cant wait to hear it idle... vroom vroonm...
