biggrin FINALLY - got some pics up + some questions!

Sorry i havent been very active lately . . . been so busy with school, work, and recovering from weekends . . hahaha.

http://www.fordgallery.com/showgalle...r=8394&thumb=1

Check out my gallery, i just got my rims the other day so it finally looks 'finished' cept for some lil details here n there.

Hopefully i'll b coming upto the Heathcote day . . depends on school really.

Oh yeh i got some questions . . maybe down the track i'll need another engine. I was wondering what engines (from later model fords) will fit nicely into my engine bay (non V8)? I was hoping the AU XR6 engine will fit in there, hehe . . or am i dreaming?

Also my mate was telling me its Illegal to have a pod filter . . is that true? Is there ways you can get around it?

Thnx for any feedback, i appreciate it

Cheers!

The AU 6 will fit, dunno if it's a straight swap though.

You can have a pod filter, it's just got to be enclosed, ie; in the standard airbox.

And nice looking car, goes well with the rims.

blueoval - they make aftermarket copies of the AU Tickford rims with E series offset.

I am sure the AU engine won't be a straight swap. Can't remember why, something to do with the sump? It has been done before though. I'm just not the one to ask!

The vehicle is tested to conform to EPA emission regulations in stock form, by fitting a Pod Filter you are changing the emissions level of the vehicle, you'd just have to have it ok'd by an EPA emissions test.

Thnx Blue O', i've seen some nice EB's with those rims on so i thought it must fit . . i've seen heaps of other rims i liked but none of them could fit coz of the offset . . but ahwel, this was my 1st choice anyways :>

I got em from The Tyre Factory in dandy, they're authentic Tickford rims they guy told me, i spose they are, they got the logo n everything on it . . even if they arent i dont really care, its how it looks on my car that matters :)

I paid $1800 all up for em, had to do some bargaining though to get em down at that price . . can anyone tell me if it sounds like a good deal?

Thnx for the other answers . . when my engine goes (if? its still goin strong! but for how long? eheh) i think i'll look at getting a newer/beefier engine put in :>

If i got a pod filter installed where would i go to get it ok'd by the EPA dudes?

Sorry to burst your bubble mate, but they can't be authentic Tickford rims, they just don't fit! I have copies too that came with the "Tickford" logo, but really its just an imitation. See below:
