EF mods

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

Re: EF mods

Hubcaps are a good start

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).

Re: EF mods

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.

Re: EF mods

John, yup Nicko did it, and i remember when he posted about it, thats what was said (i.e. it was a bit too good for the I6).

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!
