Hey guys,my name's Scott and here are some photos of my recent purchase,a 5/95 build EF Gli Falcon.It's a 5 speed manual, has just over 154000km's,and i got it for a good price with 12 months rego.It did require a bit of work,such as a master cylinder,rocker cover gasket and thermostat gasket.Future plans for the car include a full 2.5 inch exhaust system with extractors,fit the lowered springs i have and fix and buff up the front panels and undertray. I will be adding photos as i do things to the car,cheers...Vito

Hey guys in regards to the exhaust system i want to fit ,im thinking of having the extractors and ,high flow cat ,but in regards to the 2.5 inch sports exhaust system,i want to intergrate a hooker muffler[headers] just for something different,anyone have any opinions on this?, i think it will give the 4.0lt 6 a very nice rumble,plz let me know guys, cheers.The extractors i want to get are a set of pacemaker extractors,that i have seen on a xh xr6 ute, i was told thay are saloon car spec anyone happen to know the part number of these extractors? thanks guys...Vito

hey mate with pacie extractors as far as i know 4499 are for pretty much stock engines and give good improvement in torque at low revs and 4480s improve power torque at high revs (above 3500rpms)...

looks really nice...

my AU has a redback 2.5" system, high flow cat and4499s.. im happy with the sound but it'll require a after market CAM to get a bitr of a rumble

How loud is it and does it give out nice crack and pops when decelerating?

The exhaust was on my EA,It's a Lukey glass pack muffler,i found the hotter it got the better it sounded.It had a nice deep sound,with slight crackle on down shifts,it was only a cat back exhaust system,no extractors oh yeah its a 2.5 inch system.Should sound good when i put it on the EF.

Here is a photo of my EF and my now retired EA and a couple of photos of my XE at Powercruise i just found on my laptop

Okay i thought i'd put some more photos up,since i last put anything up ive fitted the cat back exhaust system,putin some slightly lower springs front and rear.The car was also in a accident,idiot sideswiped me and pushed my car into the kerb while driving down the road,now new,freshly painted r/h/f guard,now gotta spray the rest of the guards to match

Recently i took the car down the quarter mile for the first time,witha best time of 16.2@ 85mph,was a lot of fun and plan to do it again soon.Here are some pics.
