97 EL mods

gday everyone.

Just recently picked up a 97 EL and would like to know how to make it a bit more enjoyable to drive. I was looking at doing exhaust, suspension and brake mods to start off with and would like to know some good products at a reasonable price.
cheers everyone

Re: 97 EL mods

i got a 97 el,and when i got her she sat a bit low and had wheels and a wing so all ive done is,2 1/2 lukey zorst,hiflo cat,ef airboxlid,au3 tickford snorkel,k&n panel filter,and a must in all falcons......an au3 xr leather wheel.i reckon the wheel gave me 10rwkw lol.no seriously the mechanical stuff made a huge difference,crisper throttle response,nice note and better fuel economy.so of ya go young one and enjoy the beauty that is an el falcon.

Re: 97 EL mods

cheers everyone.

New to ford game and never really thought about doing mods to a falcon but now i have one and will do for a while. i just want to improve on the basics and see how i go from there (before filling the void on exhaust side of engine with turbo hehe). Im sure ill have lots of silly questions in the future

Re: 97 EL mods

If you want to make it more enjoyable the best thing to do first would be a decent suspension setup followed by a set of 17's/18's with performance rubber. Not only will you have a blast around the twisties, but you also give yourself a good base vehicle to build upon I.e. it'll be ready for a monster twin turbo setup :)
