help with ea

k i have a 88 ea s pack 3speed auto cfi and plan on doing it up(as some of you may know)anyways im wondering if i should clean it up and paint it ect first or get the new motor and mechanicals done first?
also im goin to convert to mpfi and have looked at all the post on the subject and i still having problems in knowing what parts i will need. So if one of you nice ppl like to compile a full part and anything else i'll need LIST and what to do(ie a guide,heheh) i would appreciate it. Same with putting ef thermo fans in too please. The reason i ask is i dont really have time to try work it out, too busy at work and weekends mainly taken with helping mum and dad with renovating the house. I still get some time but i would really like to follow some instructions to get it done quicker. I hope some out there can help!!!

Re: help with ea

Well your definately starting from the bottom up with the lowest spec EA there was - heheh i got one too ;-)

There's no question about what to do first - I mean if you are serious about doing a car up then think about this - I have never been three hours from home and had a paint failure causing me to wait an hour in the frosty darkness at 5am..

Also who on this forum can say they have never scratched their car whilst doing some mechanical work to it? Go the mechanicals first..

Let us know what sleepwalker asked and then people can suggest from there.. Cos there will be a process depending on budget, desired street cred, go fast needs, safety needs, etc..

Although you don't need much street cred in caboolture!

Re: help with ea

there was an eb at the extreme horsepower show in adelaide that lays down 212rwkw NA. if you are going for a full race spec engine, 150-165rwkw is piss easy just don't expect it to be all that drivable through the city. (auto or manual?). While the engine is out, take care of the body.

Re: help with ea

keeping the 3 speed auto but getting it done up a bit.
and not a full race spec(too much money)but just a bit of tweakage to the std one.

Nah mate your not dreaming, if you get it rebuilt with a nice cam, good intake / exhaust, bit of head work and some high comp pistons you should be able to make that fairly easily!

But it all comes down to $$$
