i want i want i want :D id love to have the au offset with irs, get bigger better rims, more traction, better brakes and handleing and go lower

all round a worth while modification im my eyes


do you think you would be able to do the same with a ba instead of au. put all the ba front end an drive line in an e series, i mean with the ba engine and everything or would it still be to big for under the bonnet?

very old post I know, but I have finally gotten the car engineered :?

No dramas at all, he was very happy with all the work, said the front rails were heaps stronger than factory as the are fully seam welded, mentioned the heat treating to him and he hadnt heard of it

Thats excellent to hear.. I've looked at your writeup at one of the other ford sites many a time now..

one thing I've been thinking about alot lately is the AU ECU and associated electrics in the EL merged to the AU loom.. did you do that yourself or was it a shop job ??

I've been wanting to do that for ages to take advantage of the sequential injection....

If you did it yourself, how hard was it and did you happen to record wiring details?

basically I am running the AU looms in the dash and in the engine bay. Also all of the engine bay is basically AU, ABS, booster, master cylinder etc. then it was a matter of merging the loom for the rear end of the car, which wasnt too hard. All the work I have done, the only hjelp I eneded up getting was for the central locking. Ended up using after market solenoids to get it to work.

f**k me, i wanna move to NSW, ive pretty much canned my cortina project car because the engineers down here wont let you change s**t without getting stuff tested and having computer analysis done on it, apparantly "heaps stronger than original" doesnt cut it (probably because there isnt any money in it for them that way)

Cool, so essentially you have most put all the AU stuff in and just joined up the rear looms..

looks like I have to add sourcing a trashed AU to the list of things to do when the supercharger is done.

how did you go getting the au facia to fit and do you have any photos of it? I don't believe I've seen it in the writeup.
