Wild-EL - No mods to trans tunnel except to extend to hole for the shifter by about 20mm. No computer mods either. I could have done with a diff ratio change (from 3.08:1) but it wasn't terrible so I left it. I did the mod a while ago now, email Mal Wood themselves and they'll give you the full price breakdown and options list. Be sitting down when you read it.

thanks for the info mate appreciate it.

ok misleading when ive seen it done to an au ute mate.no stuffing around with anything other then what you see.whole ba front end bolts straight onto an au. i wasnt saying it would look the best but would look a hell of a lot better then the ugly front they already have on them (unless its an xr)

None of the inner panels on a BA/F even remotely resemble an AU. Every thing is a different shape.
Sure you could bastardize some ugly s**t under there and get stuff to look kind of right from the out side. But I'd rather drive an AU that looks like an AU then to be try hard.

Anyway, how did this thread even get on this topic?



Now back on topic.


The sump was sitting next to my office door today after having the two -10AN fittings welded on.
A mechanic i've known for while was in to pick up some parts, he simply said
Quote:
When there are two oil drains in the sump, you know it's going to be cool as f**k.

hate to burst your bubble champ. Taken from someone who HAS done the conversion: quote-"It is definately NOT a "straight bolt on job", that's the reason you don't/won't see many around. The list is long, but the most difficult thing is modifying/replacing the rails, rad support/skirts are also completly different, bonnet hinges took me a w/end alone as they are bolted to the car in a different place..................& so on & so on......."

and yes back on topic.

Happy Easter everyone.

New base car is happening and I'm pretty f**k excited to be honest! :D Going to go and pick it up on my next RnR from work, so about two or three weeks away.

In the mean time I've done some work on the EF.

Makes me a sad panda to go back to NA, but I know it will make one member on this site extremely happy. I'll give you a call in the next day or two Sean and sort out how we make the next step.




On another note I'll be having a bit of a garage sale once the new car is here for all the EF gear. I've got a fair bit of cool gear including a genuine EL XR body kit with all the skirts, bonnet and front bar; a set of genuine EL GT wheels; a bunch of new old stock parts including EF/EL rear quarter windows and a bunch of the other exterior plastics; as well as a bunch of random pieces as well; hell, once the new car has the new engine in it I'll probably even try and sell the EF as well.

If anyone ever seriously wanted to do up an EF/EL I've got pretty much everything they'll need including the base car.

When I'm ready I'll put up a For Sale thread.

So nick, It seems like you need to start a new build thread.
This time you get to start with a nice tidy AU.



Come with a price for the manual gear out of it too, you never know it might just find it's way into an EA.

I figure as much... but he is being a little lazy in putting up a pic of the newer car since he picked it up.

Settle down Cliff, back from work now. :lol:

Brad, I'll drop in and see you tomorrow with the AU and about the gearbox.

I'll put up a new thread on the AU in a few minutes. But for now the poor old EF has been relegated to out on the street overnights. :( Poor old girl. The supercharger has arrived at it's new owners home, AusEDWagon. So expect him to be enjoying the torque-any-time-you-need-it of the supercharger some time soon.

I've got to get the 6 speed out of it soon; I should be doing it this weekend, but family stuff is going to stop that from happening; so probably next break instead. The MOMO steering wheel and gear knob will come out of it too and then that's it; the journey is officially over.

I'm kinda sad to see it like this; but I'm excited to have something new and better. :D Onwards!
