New rims look awesome mate. Still needs to go lower in the front though IMO. I'd just go for an a/market strut set-up, like my Bilsteins, and have the height dropped on them.

I wouldnt bother changing the headers they look like an aftermarket item like Genies or the likes.

Im guessing your diff gears are 3.45 not 3.55 as im pretty sure 3.55 is a Salisbury ratio. 3.45 is a good all round ratio but if i was you i would have stepped up abit further to 3.73 or 3.91.

What are you going to be looking towards for your next mod? Go or show?

Jeff

The diff bloke said 3:55, He said you wouldn't want any higher and and whatever is in it feels like heaps becuase theres not much in 1st and 2nd anymore. Next mods are 3inch exhuast and spoiler removed. My car sounds awesome now but the muffler has a knock in it so i mayaswell upgrade. I've been quoted 600 for the cat back. I don't really know a lot about the 5L engine and am still learning on what bits i need and whats a good price in regards to building a stroker engine with cam to suit. I'll post a video of my exhaust on here if i can work out how to do it

For your exhaust, if you want the best performance while still having an awesome not i reccomend going for a twin 2 1/4" or if the budget cant stretch that far a single 2.5" will be fine. Just make sure you use a name brand muffler/s like magnaflow, hooker, luke race etc.
Theres plenty of ways to get decent power out of the 5.0 windsor without stroking it, do a search of the V8 Workshop forum and the build thread of my ute and you find alot of info.

Yeah I read your build thread religously lol. I really wanna get her going a bit quicker. Wanna back the plates up a bit more. I was told twin pipes wouldn't fit under an e seires, especially if it was lowered.

Put the supers up front not long ago so waiting for them to settle a little first. Yeah they are E-series offset, but still if they had a look at the tyre placard then at the wheel size i could of been in some strife

Well if you do go single system i'd reccomend staying with 2.5" wit one muffler. A mate of mine had that on his EL XR8 manual with Pacies and hi-flow cats and it sounded great, was nice and torquey too with no drone at cruise RPM.
