Since it's been bloody hot down here in Melbourne for the last week or two, I've been cruising down to Elwood beach a fair bit for a swim and to check out the cars. If you want a good place to cruise to of a night then it's not bad. Tuesday nite went off! The car park was full and most of the cars were modded. There was this white van there full of Kicker subs that was providing the tunes, while a heap of other cars were going spastic doing burnouts to keep the crowd entertained. The weird thing was that I didn't see a single cop car or undercover all night. The carpark didn't even close like it says on the signs...I was there until about 1:30 and it was still full!
Went down again last night but too early for all the cars....but when I was leaving this white ED with 17" AU2 wheels followed me out (clearly on purpose lol) and as I pulled out onto the esplanade he flew up next to me wanting to race. I dropped two gears and *just* pulled away but only by 1/2 a car then backed off cause speeding is a no no Was talking to him at the next lights and it was an auto (stock) with 4.11's and some engine work. Said it had about 160rwkw's!! Has anyone seen this guy around? It was a bloody nice looking car and had a sticker of the performance joint on the back window (didn't see what it was tho).
hay sphell i no the guy your talking about lol You were telling me about him at my work that night. Ive talked to him on mirc b4 he clicked on me he was telling me he has about 160rwklw as well. might have to give him a run one day hhmmm
Hey ive just read ur post so i deceided to join the ford forums internet has been down lately but yhe. The sticker on the back of my car is preston automatics & differentials. The boys from there put the 4.11's in and there currently making me a shift kit. Ur car is really nice sphell, uve had an accident yhe is that why ur bonnet and front quarter panels are white???
LOLOL u werent beating me by half a car length!!! That nite i dragged 2 other cars a black vs ss commy which i beat by about 2-3 carlengths when i pulled up at the lights i said what happened mate?? and he goes my "power button wasnt on"!!!! watta toss lol then i go yhe six cylinder mate and i sped off embarrasing in front of his mates lololol The other car was a el xr8 manual which i suprisingly beat "just" and it wasnt stock either.
ey dude, nah haven't had a stack, im respraying the car.......just doing the primer bit by bit till i go on holidays. It looks pretty dodgy at the moment. what u mean I wasn't in front of u LOL, seemed to me like ur bonnet was next to my passenger door Have to do a proper run sometime too risky along there man, cops everywhere. Hey so what have you done to the engine? And how much power has it got....fkn quickest auto I've ever seen man....top lookin car btw!
hey thanx man! well basically ive got a jmm dev5 kit put on my car along with 4.11's lsd although i opted for the jmm race series headers instead of the 'scavenger" ones also got a k&n pod filter but i left the standard snorkel there to guide air to it for now until i make my proper cold air intake system.
The dyno graph showed 160rwkws but i was hoping for a little more still cant compain though excellent top end power. bottom end is silightly more powerful than standard but not by much the cam kicks in at around 3800rpm sorta like boost lolol neway how much u rekon a manual conversion would cost?
