Saw you driving the beast in Lincoln last weekend along Tasman Tce, think it was Sunday but might have been Monday. She looked the goods and sounded nice too!

Because i love my car and ef/els in general, thats why. They do look quiet good for their age and if you cant see that your f**k blind. Now enough spamming alfy's thread. If you got anything else you wanna say PM me.

well, looks like the auto has started to s**t itself sooner than i thought.

on the highway doin 85-90, boot it and it changes back to second, but theres this massive grinding sound coming from the auto and it takes about 2 seconds to kick down :lol:

and it clunks like a b**ch when stationary, foot on brake, going from R to D and back again.

looks like the manual might be going in sooner than i thought :D

well, i now know what a prick it is to own a lowered car and live in a town with lots of steep driveways and bumps in the road.

my extractors have a nice crack in the join to the cat, sounds like a f**k farm tractor :lol:

i tried to slop a blob of Maniseal on it to try stop it, but it lasted about 10 minutes before coming off and sounding like a John Deere again :lol:

is there any way of strengthening all the joins on my exhaust so when i bottom out it dosent tear all the welds?

get the exhaust hung higher if possible, get better shocks/struts.

your car doesnt look low enough that you would have issues like this
