the cop car comment was a passing comment from a guy at work, not a look i was going for :lol:
i'm sure "most people" will like the car with the rim's i have in mind :wink:
but everyone has different tastes, that's what forum's are for :P

LOL got to agree and who would want a car that looks like a worn out US cop car, unless your name was Jake and Elwood.

i did some power run's today, to see where i'm at before i go any further.
it's about where i thought it'd be power wise.....
it still has to be tuned, but i wont do so until i've done a couple of other thing's to it.

it's hard to say, i did want to see 200rwkw's today, but i'm not that far off :wink:
the average that i've seen in thread's tuned is around 210-220 rwkw's...
(stock motor, cai & exhaust) which is what i've done so far.
it go's ok for a big car, but like most people.... a little more power would be good :lol:

Hey man,
nice run video there. Is the revving sound from yours?

Sweet ride, I love the LTDs. All black too, as mentioned before...plenty of pimp potential.

I must admit though I had to go to a quiet area when I saw the G220 on page one though. LOL. It's crazy. Almost has a HSV look for the first second from the front.

a small update.....
a couple more part's came over from the state's earlier this week in the form of 2 new cam phaser's, or "cam position sensor's" as they say over there ;)
i was quoted $600+ each from ford here, the best i could find on the net from aust was $385 each + postage from perth.
thanks to a link to a ford dealer's ebay site in the state's from another forum, i got 2 of them and shipping to my door for just over $420 :shock:

Image
Image

i've already got the phaser limiter's (for bigger cams) to suit these....

Image

so now it's just deciding what cam's i'm going to go with and order them :grin:
also the auto is just about to be rebuilt, so a hi-stall will be put in..what size depends on what cams i go with.
the diff & gears are next after the auto so all is ready for the engine upgrade.
