Good aye fellas, ive been readn the forum for a while and only subscribed a while ago. Im a cabby and been involved with the brand for years but need some advice. How can i make my EL XR8 roar, and I mean roar like the old XE 351's or even the EB/ED range.
Welcome to FordForums mate!
It depends on how much you want to spend. Aussie Pete, Laminge, Grunter,XR9UTE and probably XR8Chic are the best qualified to answer. Look at some of the old threads in The Garage for some info for starters.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
Hmmmm good question.. If you want grunt , well there really aint no way of doing it without new heads.. But if you just want a growl go for a twin or single exhaust system with extractors... Everyone here has their own opinions on twins & singles, I personally run Genie ext, & a full 3" system custom made & for me does the trick.....
Have fun deciding!!!!!
FORD.... "POWER TO THE PEOPLE"...
how much in way of performance can i expect out of a EL XR8? i mean on a relatively moderate budget. As it is stock im havin fun wit it but occassionally run out of legs at high revs and through 4th and 5th.
Full dual system, decent mufflers (I use Lukey) in the right position, a small length of larger diameter pipe at the exit of each muffler, and no resonators (no I don't suffer ANY drone either). Hear it growl!
If you like I can post sound bytes of my baby.
