I was just using a dealer fitted system, can't recall the brand.
but it was nothing special, however the car wasnt turbo with that setup.
i swapped to GRA first then did the turbo.

ah ok I've been looking at a lovato system, so what did you swap just the throttle body or did you do the converter at the same time?

If you ever finish the spoiler, you could always make a mould. Might sell heaps, I'd definitely buy one, if its subtle like the Boxcar one.

I'm not sure if you covered this on Boosted or even know, but what are the wheels? They look to be a jap design of some sort, are they on spacers?



lol... easier to get "blood out of a stone".. sometime's mods are best kept original.. - i never ended up getting a mould of my "one off" "ef/BA GT hybrid bar"..

Man what a transformation!! Car looks great sacked with the airbags. I dont think heritage green would suit it any better after seeing it in bright white and with that kit.. Very well done! :wink:

Did you just get panels off a straight white car and chuck em on, or did u do a full respray in white? Any idea if airbags can be setup for a BA?

i swapped most panels over, sprayed the rest.

BA's can be done with airbags, but the kits are expensive.
the rear of a BA should be easy being IRS.

Front suffers a similar issue to other fords, lack of space with the upper control arm.
dwcustoms are looking into doing a kit for the front though.
