inexpensive mods for EA

Hi Everybody

Before (or during ) my EL engine update what inexpensive mods can I do to improve
overall performance.

I guess the most obvious is a K&N panel filter are there any other easy and inexpensive things to do ? note that the car will be running on LPG most of the time.

It has been suggested that I put in a " Blank " cat, ie. one that has no internals,
any comments on this?, ( apart from the obvious "naughty" )

Regards
Prof. Rabbit

Re: inexpensive mods for EA

You'd (hopefully) get more than a slap on the wrist if caught, and I seriously doubt you'd notice an improvement.

The #1 mod I'd recommend is sourcing diff gears from a VL or Skyline and put them into your housing. Then you can look at a cold air intake etc...

Re: inexpensive mods for EA

put a decent cam in... i havent looked under the bonnet of a car running on gas. Are you able to put extractors on???

Diff gears are great too.
