Thank you in advance

got a new german hiflo filter ($50!) waiting at post office; will put old box and xh snorkel in and retire the pod.... gonna go for silicon elbow for in take as I cant find the larger EA pipe anywhere...
got noisy lifters just this week.... is xg an eb or ed engine?? will ed rokers/lifters go in???? same 4.0l i6 isn't it???


i believe the lifters are EB-AU the nason ones on Ebay so either way should fit haha


1) SOHC do not have lifters, they have HLA's - Hydraulic Lash Adjusters.

2) EA - ED HLA's are a different size to EF/EL. get the right set for the right rocker set. EF/EL rockers are interchangable with EA-ED Rockers.

ahh yea i realized that after i wrote it but oh well HLA's are just so simple to work on to me

and yea i know but didn't know are the EF/EL rockers and stronger then the EA-EDs as my EA rockers have no "springs" in them not sure what its named but my "mechanic" pointed it out to me on a ED motor vs mine

As title says

What mirrors should i go with ?

the current mirrors or EF/EL or EB-EDs

Also with the EB-ED mirrors do i need to change the upper door rubber seal thing or anything else ?

Also what is involved in the EF/EL mirror conversion to the EA to EDS

thank you in advance

Not sure on differences but a set of ba mirrors would look good and you can colour code the backing

If the ba's fit would greatly modernise the car looks really nice as it is but a colour coded set will make it glow

I say colour code your current ones. I think the roundedness off the EF/EL dont suit the boxyness of your EA...

Then go ED ones. Fairly sure they are different slightly that way no XF mirrors and still suit boxcar.
