Re: Help Don't Know Sh1t

if getting s/low's, it may be to low for mr Plod, but thats your call, you will have to get shorter shocks as well, basically a must.

get extractors, and 2.5 inch straight through exhuast, as well a k&N panel filter

should get you started for a small amount of $$$

Re: Help Don't Know Sh1t

is it manual or auto, but idle should be around 700rpm, if it doesnt stall ever, then dont panic too much is my motto.

Re: Help Don't Know Sh1t

Whats the fuel usage like, how many litres per 100 are you getting, or how many k's are you getting on a tank, and is mostly highway or city driving.

Re: Help Don't Know Sh1t

Probably about 400k's out of a full tank i drive about 70k's to and from work, half city and half highway so its a bit hard to judge properly.

also can you clear this one up for me... when i want to leave a few black marks she wont rev past 2000rpm (with foot on pedal brake) i can feel the ass end lift and get ready to start spinnin but it wont go the extra bit for it to happen??? the old girls got a 97 EL falcon GL s/wagon and that used to do it without a problem. and i really don't want to rev the piss out of it and dump back into 1st cuz i know that causes problems (thats how i f*cked the EL what can i say i was a learner) :p but yea do u think its because of the LSD on it or could it be it doesn't have the power to spin on the spot

Re: Help Don't Know Sh1t

Should have the power, but LSD and ABS are probably conspiring against you.

Re: Help Don't Know Sh1t

how much would it cost to have a 2.5 inch exhaust all the way through with extractors or what would a nice setup be with some estimate prices cuz i really don't know anything about exhaust systems
