Ride: EL Fairmont Ghia

Location: Brisbane

Long story short... I had a silly accident in my Gold fairmont... hit a stump surrounded by grass in an alley way next to where i lived to, so i bought this one.... $1200 regd... ( STILL A RIP OFF) ended up quite a s**t!

So far ive done...

Replaced the whole interior
Fitted Digital Cluster
Fixed the ABS
Fixed the Smartlock (wasnt starting every time)
Replaced all 4 discs and Pads
Replaced Upper and Lower ball joints
Replaced Steering rack, Steering wheel

Performance wise:
3" Exhaust 3" Cat Pacemaker 4480 3" Straight through muffler
Stock Auto, Stock stall goes to 2500 on launch! - Shift kit
EL Diff with 4.11 LSD -Z Bar link on diff is lower improves handling!
AU XR6 Motor rebuilt, Head flowed to 360HP, Shaved/Decked to 10:1
Compression, Camtech stage 3 cam
EL Fuel Injection, No tuning! ---- Yet
New leads ,plugs,dizzy,rotor, EL Alloy radiator, EL thermos

Exterior:
Stock Sleeper style

Performance:
Timed 0-100 in 6.2 Seconds

The video is not totally conclusive, the speedo is slow which is annoying and you cant tell by pausing it in the youtube vid but in windows video maker i timed 6.2 so im pretty stoked considering i havnt had it tuned.
it will go to willowbank soon....
