this is the EF i've owned for around 3years now.

quick run down on the story behind it. The original windsor that was in it didnt like my driving/treatment of it, so the crank decided to come apart in two pieces destroying the engine and block.

After a little considiration, i picked up a AU XR8 engine, that went in, and about another year later it was running, took ahwile cause i lost intrest in it and just cbf.

but any way hears basicaly what it is

Car: 94 EF
Colour: Cardinal Red
Engine: AU2 XR8 200kw
Exhaust: Twin Stainless 2.5"
Interior: AU Black Leather
Rims: Apec 19"

and the ususal, kings SL, sloted rotors, etc

The grill was needed, the factory ford one doesnt flow air, all the metal behind it has been cut out too, so now flows nicely into the snorkel :D

another AU2 part lol with the seats, good EF/L seats are hard to come buy so these went in, pretty much in perfect condition too.

couldnt help my self with the coilpacks, the dissy didnt realy fit either with the AU power steer pump to give proper movement for timing, plus having 4coils then one has to be better :D

nah the AU front seats are a easy fit, just re-use the rails from the e-series seat, and bolt the AU cushions to them. The rear is alitle more tricky, back half bolts up, side bolsters will fit aslong as you grab the AU brakets, which i didnt, so cut a hole in them so they cliped on same as the EF ones. The bottom half needs new hooks made up in the floor.

Pics of the grill as requested.
