LOL, It is a lot to do. Maybe a job you want a few mates and a long weekend ahead of you to get it done.

Lol i also wouldnt have a clue how to change over the climate control to Fairmont, Ghia etc spec but it does look a hell of a lot nicer and is quite a good mod for the base model interior.

Full BA intake isnt too hard a job, a few people have done the full swap over. The inside wheel arch just need to be bashed in a bit so that the BA airbox can be mounted without sitting too high and fouling on the bonnet, as it sits a bit higher than EF EL airboxes. It does have 2 holes for mounting to the top of the plenum on the BA as does the AU and possibly EL as they had a similar intake setup. But it sits very securely without the bolts holding it to the plenum - i speak from experience :lol:. Its a tight fit and the BA intake pipe has indents for where it sits over the curves on the BBM so it wont go anywhere. So basically the BA intake piping is pretty much a straight swap, ive done it on my EF but i retained the EF airbox and it looks like this VVVV

Image

The EF airbox is big enough so the BA one isnt really required unless you're after a modern look. Using the EF airbox, the BA intake piping will fall short of connecting up so a short length 3" pvc pipe or alloy/stainless etc would be needed to join them.

Man your rocker cover looks sweet mate, I sure you have had it in your thread but I must have missed it.

Is that an XR intake pipe your using there?

Thanks mate :mrgreen:

Yeah the rocker cover and throttlebody are the latest mods on the Fairmont so far, havent put it on the build thread as of yet, still havent finished in the engine department :lol:. I'll update my thread as soon as i upgrade the cam and clean up the engine bay a bit

And yeah thats a BA intake pipe and a BA XR6T snorkel. The normal BA XT and XR6 (non turbo) intake pipes are the same. I have also been told that the territory ones are bigger or something but not to sure if they would fit under the bonnet due to clearance etc. It just runs to a 3" alloy pipe to join it straight into the airbox with a pod on the end and seems to work okay. Would love a nice HPC'd stainless intake though :twisted:
