I've got an EA...

Hi people,

I bought an EA S pack in December last year. It's my first car as I am only 17. It's a 5 speed manual, Single point injection with no mods. I have heaps of tools to modify it myself but was just wondering whether there are any small things that can be changed that could make a big difference overall to the car. It's got 205/65 tyres on standard 15 x 6.5" rims at the front and 225/60's also on standard rims on the rear. It squeaks a lot and I have replaced a lot of parts since I got it as well. These include: Rear Brake Discs Machined and Front Discs replaced with brand new standard discs (DBA Kangaroo Paw ventilation pattern these are excellent), new set of spark plugs, diff bearings, the 225/60's as mentioned before, rear calipers fixed up due to ceasing and the handbrake not working, new battery, new ignition coil and module, new hall effect sensor, new sump (due to the old one being jacked up on and bending the oil pick up), a new oil pump and pick up, new engine mounts, new rear main seal, new timing chain set, and new front wheel bearings. I also have some spare doors and bumber bars and various other bits. This is also my first time on Ford Forums so I just thought I'd introduce myself.

Thanks

Re: I've got an EA...

Welcome mate im sure you'll find this place interesting (to say the least).

Certain exterior mods such as colour coding / adding clear side and front indicators make these cars look really nice (so does a bit of window tinging). Also lowering never hurt anyone

If your looking at making her go a bit harder than you really cant go past a MPI conversion as these will set you up to gain the most out of your other mods. Once thats on chuck on a nice 2.5" exhaust and a set of extractors. After that try a K&N panel filter in the MPI airbox which should get it sucking in air a bit better.

Then you can go to things such as a cam / a bit of head work (and then even forced induction...the list just goes on and on)

Changing the diff to a set of 3.7 or 3.9 gears should get it picking up quite nicely.

Hope that helps!
