Now that My EF is no longer a virgin ( has had a head job ) I'm looking into keeping her for a long time and possibly modding it in the future. First up I will be overhauling the cooling system, then exhaust and headers.
I know the performance benefits of a 5 speed conversion but I'm wondering if anyone out there is getting good performance from their E-Series in Auto form. I would like to either fit a JMM Dev kit or perhaps a mild Turbo setup, LSD and maybe a BA GT induction kit.
What are your opinions? I like the idea of having an Auto because I am lazy but may be persuaded hehe
Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted
Lowered EF Futura
Black Steelies ( too cheap to buy proper mags )
Ive been interested in a GT/T3 style intake setup before, but im not too sure on how it would go on an I6. I know a few guys suggested that it would be no good simply because the system is designed for a V8 engine, so it might be overkill on a 6?
I have typical airbox-AU intake-K&N setup and it does the job fine, the only thing i am thinking about replacing is the induction piping (swapping the big EF one with an EL or AU one).
to make an auto fun change the varable pressure solinoid (VPS) for an adjustable one this will allow wheel spinage when gears are changing. ive got a cam, exhaust, chip and induction and its makin a bit over 130rwkw. All i gotta do is change my diff ratio and this thing will killllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll. plus how do ya eat a burger and drive a manual at the same time aye? with out spillin any mind u.
cam starts to work efficently at 2500rpm wheel spin starts at 2500rpm in wet, nothing sus or anything.
tell me more tell me more (like does he have a car?)
i want to get a bigger cam, and some 3.9s but keep the auto. are you saying the shift points/speed limiter/speedo correction issue can be fixed? who can tune the eecv well, given there are heaps of unichip shops?
i havent seen a thread on this before.. so if im missing something, point me in the right direction!
