well im bored so thought i may chuck up a build thread of the car thats replaced the falcon.

1993 ford TX5 GHIA 2.5L qaud cam V6, 5sp manual, 270,000k's but looked after, completely standard.

done so far:
cd player
seat covers
saas gear knob
removal of blocked rear muffler
removed dirt filled filter and put on a pod filter that was in the shed

to be done:
for now fit the cannon i bought untill i decide what im doing performance wise
wheels
lower
colour code grey bits on bumpers
tidy up engine bay
and what ever else is cheap

future:
i have a T3 turbo in the shed wich could possibly find its way on to this hence why im not gonna replace the s**t exhaust just yet.

pics:

how it may look when i stop being lazy get the welder out and fit the cannon

came off a R33 skyline hoping it will be big enough for 8ish psi.

thats it for now.
cheers. :P

Nice lookin car man, looks clean like my old one. Umm the cannon would look better if it was in the bumper some where and, some good mods can be done 2 these, like on mine i had deleted the orange indicators off the front bar and but the parkers in the headlight and wacked in some orange bulbs were the parkers were.

Nothing makes me laugh more on the roads then seeing a car with a cannon on it whilst the car looks stock. Funniest s**t on the roads.

Lowering would have been a better start, then mags then sell the cannon and get a better exhaust.

Sorry man if i offended you.


i dont like like cannons much either and as said above its a temporary thing untill i decide on what im doing N/A or turbo as the rear muffler was blocked and it drones like hell without a muffler.....and its not even on yet. and knowing how lazy i am i may not even get around to fitting it :P
