Re: How to make an EF haul arse?

ummm, no you cant see it unless you have x-ray vision lol. But you may be able to hear it
, im unsure if the insurance companys will accept it if you tell them about it (but that depends on your policy
sorry


Also a tickford snorkel and high flow panel filter or a cai setup , do a search for it

put some good oil in it as well and give it or have it serviced

there are probably thousands of posts on this stuff if you do a search for it

Re: How to make an EF haul arse?

Even if you looked at a Wade cam you couldn't tell the diffrence from the standard with the naked eye due to it being a regrind. You take your cam in and they regrind it to the profile you want, so it still has all the original ford stampings on it. So unless you measure it up, it is hard to tell. But you can hear it.

Ruger, $1500 for a manual conversion, really i thought they were around 5k, maybe that's if i was looking at a new box. Is that for a reco T5?

Re: How to make an EF haul arse?

Some insurers dont like cams, i know NRMA doesnt, hence why i havent bothered putting a new/reground one in. However if i knew i could get away with it i would, and i am seriously looking at it as for the cost it's a VERY effective mod.

If it's bog stock, try to 'free things up' a bit. The standard air intakes and exhaust system on an EF are pretty restrictive - i noticed when i put a Tickford Snorkel and a K&N in there it gave it a bit more space to breathe, and an exhaust system with some good extractors will definately give it a bit more go.

However, if its not lowered, i insist you get rid of that god-awful EF 4WD ride height!

Re: How to make an EF haul arse?

the sound depends on the exhaust you have, it will just become a bit lumpier idle
