Ride: 98 EL xr8

Location: Brisbane
QLD, Australia

hay all

newbie to ford but been a ford fan since as long as i could remember..

my name is Matt and i am 23 from southside of brissy
and my ride is a 98 EL XR8 and love it..

its got 140 ***ks on the clock
auto
sound system
3" exhaust with pacemaker extractors and no resanators
some wheels have no idea came with the car :roll:
K&N panel filter

after owing it for 4 weeks its spent more time getting worked on then drivin :evil:
first thermo housing cracked so i replaced it with a new one and a new thermo and gasket
after doing that i noticed it leaking from bottom header tank in radiator so i replaced the radiator with alloy headers. after that it was still leaking so replaced the water pump and changed hoses and new radiator cap... after that no more leaks :lol:
then the idle was stuffed it kept stalling so i looked everywhere at all the sensors and found the maf sensor was full of crap so i have cleaned that out and so far so good...

plans...
darker tint
change of wheels i think :?: :?:
and change the red moulds as they are all starting to fade to a pink colour :(
thats about it...

its just a daily to get to point a to b but have some fun on the way..
well this is my baby

looks pretty neat, fairly low kms for a el xr8. id get some new wheels, the moulds come up on ebay fairly often so just keep an eye out for them. I'm also becoming a fan of of the EL tail lights (amber indicators instead of clear EF ones) although alot of people go the clear

Cheers Cam

as for the stroker kit i thought about it but not 100% sure kinda happy just with the cruiser look i didnt buy it for the v8 power but just for that v8 noise...
