Re: EB performance ideas???? pls help!

There is only one real cheap mod and its an auto mod, check out mechanical forums, 9psi eb it his website, cost you about $10 for the module to make and it will get your auto sideways in the wet.

IF YOU DONT TRY IT YOU WONT KNOW.

Just do a search for more info!

Re: EB performance ideas???? pls help!

Read my sig :)

Seriously though, absolubtely THE single most effective mod short of a blower is a manual box.
Failing that, try a few wreckers for s/h extractors etc, you can usually pick up some good ones cheap - around the $300-500 mark for a full system...
EF intake is another good one, even if you don't use the BBM function.

Re: EB performance ideas???? pls help!

Couple of ideas, Ipicked up my s/h extractors and sports exhaust at the wreckers for $160 and installed it myself. If your car is a EB GL maybe a falcon S computer, don't know how much it cost or the benefits cos haven't tried it.

I have something to say, its better to burn-out, than to fade away

Re: EB performance ideas???? pls help!

Oh yeah I didn't read that :)

A manual for an 8 is rare as rockinghorse shit mate, that'll set you back a fair few $$$.
Other than that, intake manifold and extractors/exhaust I'd suggest, but am not a v8 expert
