What I've done to my EB.....

Hey all

my first post here, i've been a lurker both here and at eafalcon.com since i bought my car over 2yrs ago, and since getting it (stock white GLi Auto Poverty pack) have done a fair bit of work to it :) this is a bit of a log thread, and to show the inspiration i have gotten from this forum for doing all these mods :)

First up, i changed over to clear indicators and side indicators, grabbed some of these ultra-blue narva globes for my headlights, and got the car proffesionally detailed.

I then had a car which was a little different,... but my thirst for mods grew :

Next was an exhaust system, Lukey Extractors, with std CAT, 2.5 inch piping and a singe hi-flow lukey muffler, i now had a nice little boost to performance, and a sweet sounding machine :)

but i still wanted more!

Next, comes the big kahuna, i bit the bullet, and bought a whole other car!
This little baby was very tired looking outside, but had a heart of gold. This car was an EBII, so has smartlock, it had cruise control, and a lovely cute lil 5 spd that was begging to be yanked from its home :D

after getting both cars home, i sunk my teeth into what turned out to be a bit of a job. The gearbox changeover was fairly easy, this included fitting a BA-Spec Heavy Duty Clutch, which is so much better to drive than these lil light pussy things :D but the wiring wasnt as simple. We ended up swapping the whole dashes over between cars, for 'easiness', Then fitted the cruise wheel and cruise module to my car.

The computer needed to be changed as well, and with that came smartlock. After running a few signal wires for the door locks, we had remote entry up and working, and it was all ready to screw back together.

Last but not least, i still wanted more :) and it got the better of me

A good mate of mine that works at one of the local wreckers, found me an EBII Smartlock S-Pack dash, and after fitting that, my baby is just the way i like it :D

With good news comes sad news, and the car is blowing some greyish smoke, so while i am selling my other auto car now, i will be doing the rings on my car, then i should be right for a little while.... that is, until i get the itches for some more performance :D

Hope my first post wasnt too boring and long-winded! cheers again guys for all the first hand accounts, it made the unexpected when doing these mods much easier!

Enjoy!

PS - I will upload some pics of my baby soon....
PPS - The 'we' refers to myself and step-father, who was a mechanic for ~20yrs before taking a desk job the lazy bastard :p

Re: What I've done to my EB.....

Cheers for the welcome :)

the main reason for not swapping Engines with the other cars, is because it has 380,000 clicks on it. The Gearbox only had 100,000, so it was low Kms, but i dont feel confident using that engine, when my engine has only 153,000 on it

the rings are a big job, full weekend, but something i would rather do and keep my engine
