Hi fellow ford modders. This is my '95 ef xr6 5 speed man that I have had for 4 years and am currently giving a make over. The car has had a couple of mods over the years, just the usual lowered suspension, slotted rotors, 2 1/2" mandrel bent exhaust, k&n air filter. Has been sitting for the last 2 years in storage, so I have finally pulled it out and am giving it a new life.

Have an ef fairmont that when it dies will be donating the little nik nak parts to the xr6, like rear electric windows, trip computer, footwell lights etc. Purchased an el xr6 front with lip kit and bonnet for a pretty good price (not aftermarket). Am debating whether to fit a barra turbo motor or rebuild and turbo my current one it's only done 136,000kms so its still pretty good. Any suggestions?

Heres a few pics
