Looks like I've managed to score $3000 to the car fund. I might just save it for the supercharger.
Might take a couple of years but a relatively mild 8psi might make its way onboard. BPTs Ken Bell unit.

Not really on brakes. I don't drive fast enough to warrant woppa stoppas. I've got the green stuff pads and slotted rotors. They haul me up quick enough when I threshold brake.

Supercharger was the bet when the wife fell pregnant for the second time and I knew it was twins and she didn't so I bet her a supercharger it was twins and when she had the first scan sure enough there was a supercharger....I mean twins on the screen.

I like the twin screw type chargers. Makes the under bonnet look tough as nails.

Getting a small mod done.

Got my spare 5.0 litre badge and took it to Wheel Gleam in Ozzy Park.
That'll ad some polish to the engine bay.

Who know it might make me dress the engine bay so it looks a bit better.

Will post pics when I get it back.

Nice mate, should have just done the whole Explorer upper too ;)

Some nice Ford Racing rocker covers need to make their way into there too i think.

Yeah hard to find in the normal config though.
Every rocker cover I have seen has two holes and no oil filler neck.

I was thinking that I get stock rocker covers and get them polished up and put them on.
