Unless you had a car trailer & a tow car for say 2 weeks, with 2 or 3 drivers you could make the trip, only stopping for food, fuel & nature, with at least one person sleeping in the back seat... lol.

Cheers

Just completed a PAB dash conversion today, what an a***hole of a job that is. I don't recomend it to anyone haha. Wiring was there for the scarebag, you just need to remove a dummy resistor from the plug and away you go. For anyone doing the conversion, make sure you get the passenger side air ducting, as its very different to the non PAB dash.

Oh really? That sucks, i would have thought any mid/high series EF/EL/NF/NL would have had the wiring there already for the scarebag :? I did the conversion purely for aesthetics, if the wiring wasn't there i would have left it inoperable :)

It looks like a daunting task, but it's actually quite easy once you get in there. The hardest part is unscrewing the fuse and relay block from the back of that dash shell :x

hey man been watching your thread for a few weeks.

very nice man.

i bought a ef fairmont a few weeks ago and spent more time fixing it then driving it.

the old bloke i got it off did not drive it for 4 yrs so every seal is pretty much stuffed.

im trying to convince the missus to get a house with a big shed so i got room to tinker.

seen BA motors cheap as in good nic so im keen to do it.

Cheers for the inspiration

mate...first of all let me say congratulations...

it has taken me since saturday afternoon to read this thread ( on and off between painting cars and what not ) anyway the main reason i stumbled across your thread is i was googling this exact engine/box conversion myself for my ef...as the transmissions packed it in i came across a complete running gear setup for $1000...cheaper alternative than just the box...so i think...

but got me to thinking since u initially used ur old el box onto the ba motor and u had the stuff around with the wiring loom...i wonder whether it would be easier to use a complete ba harness...dash loom and all...maybe something i have to try later on lol

anyway from me u get 10/10 for originality ( havent seen that engine conversion done before )

congrats for such an agonizing but yet accomplishing build mate...ill be watching still :)

It does go actually lol. Well...it starts, idles and kinda revs. All the intercooler piping is sorted, no holes in the bodywork required, exhaust is done and all lines up, had a problem with the map sensor setup (yet again), tuning is taking it's time, the fact that if you want to make one suble change it takes you ten bloody minutes for the flash tuner to load it. Which is frustrating to say the least. As I got a good price it's just being done in spare time. Which doesn't bother me as I have my daily fun-car to play with and make faster with minimal money.

So technically, not sorted yet, yes it is dragging on and I've had enough of it, so anyone that wants to buy it and continue on, throw me a line.....srsly.
