:wink: Hi There,
I am new to this forum so thought I would introduce myself.
"DamsEL" here, with my 1997 EL Falcon Sedan.
Pretty much stock in the engine bay, and the only mods I have been able to do are cosmetic.

Before:
Image

Winders to Front Power Regulators with non-factory switches

Rear Courtesy Light, Clock and Head Unit.
Image

6" Kicker Splits with Crossovers (Amp and Sub to install)
Image

Exterior Door Handle LED's

Lowered (SL's and SSL's)
Ford 16' Rims with 16x7 225/50 R16 Supercats

After:

Thanks for watching :)
Cheers
Damsel :wink:

Welcome!
The EL looks good as is!
Do a search and you'll get a good idea of what other mods you're capable of performing!
Best of luck :)

EL's are a good start :).

Yellow is definitely different to the usual red and blue.

How do you find your aftermarket electric switches?

Took a bit of time to fit, but once they were in they were very easy to connect and the regulators work a treat. :D

For another simple add on mod.

See if you can get hold of an intake pipe from an XR6.

The one that goes from the top of the radiator to the air box.

Tickford ones have the T wings embossed on the top, that's the one I have, im not too sure what exact other models had it too. Maybe XR8s too..

If you can get one it is heaps larger than the standard one. Allowing more flow without altering the intake setup from the factory look.

Looks good otherwise tho. I love the XR 16s.. Probably the best factory wheel design Ford made.

CAI upgrade sounds like a good idea. Thanks I will do some research. :)
I was told not to increase the intake till after the exhaust was done. Is this true??
