Ride: EF Fairmont Ghia V8

Location: Bendigo
VIC, Australia

Hello Guys and Girls, my name is Trent and I would like to introduce myself and my ride.

First off the rank is me.

I’m 27, I was born in Melbourne and I now live in Bendigo in country VIC. I’m single with no kids (I think) and I make a crust as a property developer. Waiting for the stock market to settle a bit before I buy another house to renovate so currently living with the folks (cheaper than renting lol) enough about me time for my ride.

It’s a 1994 EF Fairmont Ghia, Polynesian Green in color (code F3, thanks for the correction Brett :D ), it rolled out of the factory with a V8 and a sunroof which were the deciding factors when I purchased it in Feb 2003.

Now time for the mods.

Exterior:
• 19” ANZ Velvet Chrome wheels wrapped in 245/35’s
• Lowered all-round on peddlers shocks
• Dark window tint
• Custom painted grille
• Clear side repeaters
Interior:
• Blue and Black leather momo wheel
• Chrome interior door handles
Performance:
• Polished power plus intake manifold
• EL GT 65mm Throttle Body
• 75mm maf with 24lb sample tube
• 24 lb injectors
• SS inductions CAI with K&N air cleaner
• BPT race underdrive set
• Pacemaker’s, high flow cats, 2.25” twin system with 2 twin in twin out mufflers
• Powerchip gold 98 chip
• Crossdrilled and slotted front rotors
• 3.73 LSD, fully adjustable shift kit
Stereo:
• Alpine IVA-W202E double din screen
• Rockford Fosgate T162S splits X2 powered by Alpine PDX-4.100
• Alpine SWX-1243 X2 powered by 2 Alpine PDX-1.1000
• Soundstream Cap, Stinger terminals, Optima yellow top battery, 0 Gauge cabling

Time for some photos, hope you like and let me know what you think :D

Been thinking about getting stock lights and tinting them, just not sure how to do them lol.

The grill was originaly covered in crappy black paint so i stripped it back and painted it in hyper chrome as it was realy pitted and had been damaged.

heres the other pics i have of the exhaust.

Yeah i think is roughly 5.6, purchased these when in discussions with engine builder, but was a bit hasty as plans have now changed and i will be getting a 427 built in the new year so these plates will prob end up on the wall of the shed :D

ALS008, no sounds files as yet, once i do one and figure out how to post it will get one on here. Exhaust was done at Kangaroo Flat exhaust in Bendigo.

MICKYYYY, yeah prob looking at 30g+ to get it build and up and going properly. BTW did you run the 347 down the 1/4, if you did what times did you run?
