Thermo fan and BBM to fit EB 4.0?

Have recently bought an Eb Fairmont and have seen threads on fitting the ELThermo fan and Broadband Intake Manifold which apparently gives around 30kw power increase. Am thinking about doing these mods as i have the skills to do them, but what's involved? Is it worth doing? What parts are needed for each mod and how much will these bits cost.? And will the manifold fit my exsisting head???

The thermo's are a worthwhile mod as is the BBM, but dot hold your breath on 30kw.

Re: Thermo fan and BBM to fit EB 4.0?

I’m currently thinking of undertaking the same thing I purchased all relevant pieces for the manifold and fan belt conversion for $600 (including thermos and ECU for auto).

Yes the manifold should bolt straight up but you will need to change the valve cover just as a mounting point for the accelerator cable

The only complication I see ant the moment relates to the knock sensor.
Does the sensor screw into the block???
If so is the prevision for it on the EB block???

Any info on this would be much appreciated!
