Lazy man seeking advice
Hey ppl, im new to this place so i'll just give you the rundown on what I drive so you can get the overall idea. This may be a bit boring but if you dont wanna read boring crap about my car skip to the part of this post where i say its safe to read on.
1990 EAII S-Pac Falcon
3.9ltr multipoint, 5spd manual
Red, lowered, sunroof, red/black sports steering wheel, red leather gear shift knob, baby-eater exhaust tip, rear FPV spoiler, superman carseat covers :s6:
Audio: Clarion headunit, kenwood fronts and rears, 1 x P.O.S amp and 1 x 12" sub.
Bit of history:
My parents bought me this car when i was 16.. (im 20 now) for me to learn in, at first I was peeved coz I wasn't keen on the idea of driving manual.. but dad told me a manual EA-S was pretty hard to find (not sure if this is true) and said it's a good thing.. so I learned and I love the manual now..
Everything mechanical in this car has been replaced since i've had it, except for the LSD diff, that just keeps on kicking.
I've put the new steering wheel and gearknob on myself, and I did upgrade the stereo.. unfortunately I forgot to upgrade the security when i did so and now my stereo has been seriously downgraded.
What I HAD in it was: everything I mentioned above except instead of the crap amp and old sub, I had 2 amps (1 x Alpine V-Power and 1 x AudioLine), the alpine ran 2 x 600W 12" Pioneer new series subs, custom mounted in black carpeted box which basically was a wall directly behind my back seats with 2 big silver subs staring at you..
But thats history now..
SAFE TO READ ON
Well the reason im here now is because i'd like some advice, I was thinking of selling my car and buying something new (possibly even a BA) but debt doesnt appeal to me.. im a young man, and im sure you all know what im craving.. a sexy fast car.
The said mobile (my car, NAHSED) has seen 215km/h but top end speed isnt what i'm after.. i want a bit more 'umph' off the line.
So what im asking, is someone to tell me the easiest ways for someone like me (mechanically impared) to boost performance a bit, whether it be something I can do myself.. or something I can pay someone else to do.
Engine aside, my plan is to completely re-do the interior of the car, take everything out until its just a shell.. clean it up, tighten some bolts and get rid of any rattles.. I was thinking maybe a respray and some panel work coz i have a small but noticable dint on the rear corner of the car.. also I have a rust hole on the boot which I want to fix..
Once i've done this i'll put in new carpet.. not sure on if im going to go black/grey or red (i was thinking maybe cream but it'd get too dirty)..
Dad is looking around for me for some late model seats to put in my car, AU, BA kinda era.. and I might either replace the dash or just clean mine up a bit..
Once all of this is done, i'm going to put the best security I can find in the car, even if I have to hire someone to sit in it while im not there.. I dont care.. (j/k) and do up my stereo again, this time using better knowledge and more money than I did last time.. resin moulding things and maybe even a little light show.. Depending on how nuts I want to go, I could get someone to get rid of the back doors and take out the back seat, make the car a 2 door and have everything behind the front seats decked out with audio and lights.. But thats just a distant dream to me..
So here's where you guys come in, if you're still reading..
Can anyone provide me with any hints/tips? Even a thought on turbo?
After im done i'll be happy to meet up with people and show off the results..
By the way, if you happen to live around Melbourne, particularly the west of it, you might notice me if you see the huge "nah... said." sticker on my back window.
