Mods for AU Series I Fairmont Ghia
My brother has just bought a 1999 AU Fairmont Ghia for $13,000. He's the happiest little Ford Driver around at the moment becasue its a keen price for an immaculate vehicle and it leaves him with a little bit of $$$ left over to have some fun. He is going to upgrade the rims, that's his preference, but he also wants to lower the car and do the exhaust and perhaps a few minor tweaks under the bonnet.
My questions are:
1. Does anyone think it is worth paying the higher price for Herrod's to lower the car over just going to the local guy, who did a great job on his EF and my old EL, and getting him to put in King Springs? (I've heard that's all the Herrod kit is anyway)
2. What exhaust work have people had done for the VCT 6? Anyone had anything done that they weren't happy with? Full system, where and how much etc?
3. Other than something like the air filter, what other things can he have done under the bonnet to make it go that little bit better? Doesn't need to be a rocket, he just doesn't want my Turbo to completely embarass him!
Any uselful advice you guys can offer would be great! Thanks in advance!
