i got an XE and my mate got a VL...
he keeps on sayin his car is faster, which it is in a race, but he has got 3.5 gears, in his...
how can i quickly cheaply add more rwkw to stop his sayin that a holden is betta than a ford, and for him to start respecting my car?
also 2 more things...
1 when the auto is cold, will it show that its got more fluid than when its hot? after i warm it up, therei s nothing on the dipstick, but if the car is cold, its overfull?????
2 where do i start looking for a rev limiter? i wanna limit it to 5000.. 200 above redline....
We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!
XE Fairmont Ghia... Silver/Grey Met over black, soon to be v8, cant wait till i get another v8, after 3 LONG HARD YEARS
i have a vl. vl's are slow. if you want cheap mods.. do the usual shit like build yaself a cold air intake. new gears for the xe shouldnt be too expensive, try getting yourself like 3.9's or 4.11's or something like that which is near the 4's. maybe even an lsd unit from a fairmont? alot of people will say not to do this because it takes off the topend speed, but then again, how often do you go topspeed?
you could probably pick up a stall converter relatively cheaply as well, try 2500 or so.
