so its pretty much a stock standard xr6 turbo and is keeping me very happy :-)

Then i was thinking im sorry but the windows make it look like s**t, so i had a day off work and rang around Instant Windscreens in Morrabbin got the job at 20% tint at $250.00 and could do it the same day. even let me watch him do it. great bunch of bloke really nice and will help you out as much as they can. :)

Also Buying the car i knew the diff had way too much back lash. The Crown wheel was to far away from the Pinion so i got some quotes and Northern Differentials on Cooper Street Cambellfield. The work they do is amazing not the cheapest but the workmanship is amazing. so the diff got a re-raced, shimmed out the lsd, and re tightened the LSD past factory specs so it can loosen up a little :)

Also the front pads and rotors were shot so time to replaced them dba rotors were used with Bendix c2 Pads just because they are a little less harsh on the rotors :)

(photos to come)

Future mods.
Short term
Capa Flash tune on 10psi (custom)
Lower the car
Rims
replace gear surround with chrome ring
replace cup holders with new ones.
figure out away to either play mp3's or burnt cd's in the 6 stacker.

Long term
Cooler
injectors, plenum, fuel pump, ect all mods to get to 250-300rwkw :)

Image

sorry about the poor photos they are taken off my phone as ive lost the charger for my camera :(
Thanks

Lincoln

Nice pickup Linc...I remember when you told me how much you got it for at the last cruise - couldn't believe it...I reckon you could bargain down a can of beans at Coles too :P

Got to love the sunroof also - I reckon it's like the icing on the cake...just don't push it too hard around a track :lol:

Instant windscreens in Moorabbain seem pretty good - not bad on pricing too :)

Seems a lot of ES owners are going to newer models...I could reel off nearly 10 fairly active members in the greater Ford community who have done the same thing - I guess the prices are too tempting !

Congrats again on your new ride - look after her :)

Cheers,
Steve
