...except I'd NEVER let a chick climb all over my car
give us more info... what's done to it?
EDIT: I've been wanting to do that tint to my front as well, but won't till I get new headlights, that way I can tint the old ones, and only use them for show. I get hassled enough as it is in my car, don't wanna attrack more attention. That's what I've done with the back, I've got spares.
With the tinted look on the headlights, that's just some headlight covers with that "Nightshade" spray over the insides. Course you mask out the outside, make sure you do masking tape with that, cause any other tape will leave a sticky reside that's hellishly hard to get off. Bout 10 coats gave me that dark evil look...nothin but old school! This way, you can clip em on during shows, take em off when cruisin the streets.
Ok, mods to car...as you can see it's lowered massively, the small 3.3L donk was ripped out and replaced with a 4.1L with forged pistons, stage 2 cam and giant ported head. Runs on premium fuel only, with just the standard webber carby at the moment. I'm going to be completing the fuel side with a Ultraflow manifold I bought recently that came off a racing 250Xflow, and it's already ported...weee har! Ontop of that goes a Holley 750DP..mmm chrome. I also got a MSD 6AL unit to be put on with MSD leads and Blaster 2 coil.
On the exhaust side, there's pacemaker extractors, 2.5 inch stainless steel mandrel bent exhaust with unkown straight through muffler and a rice style Magnaflow 3 inch resonator on the rear.
The three speed auto was rebuilt, with a 2500rpm stallie installed.
Body work, I've replaced the two front guards and bought the last XE original bonnet in Australia from Ford, so I was a little freaked out when that chick clambered onto it. Rear guards are "pumped and flared" out to accomodate the 265 Yokohama fats under the back. Paintwork is Emerald Green with Gold Pearl and Gold Metallic Flake in it. Diff is still standard.
Ahhhhh The holley 750 ain't gonna be much when I run N20 on it....
As for the stall, well, I raced a EF Ghia (mate of mine) and it was when me car wasn't even through it's first 1000kms. tsk tsk...anywho, I kept the brakes on, revved it up to 2000rpm, lights when green, let go of the brakes, dumped the accel to the floor, and lo and behold, the 265s at the back lit up like a fat guy's fart!
However, the long necked spark plugs limited me to 4000rpm! I didn't find that out til I changed them a week later to sus out if I was over fueling. Also, that damn webber runs out of go at 4500rpm, while I still have approx 2000rpm to go to redline. Bleh.
