ive got a 1990 gl falcon. will eventually upgrade to MPI but in the meantime, wana stick an aftermarket air filter over the carb to get som sound out of it cause they sound mint without the big black tennis raquet thing. a mushroom would fit under but wondrin if its a good idea, anyone done it b4? or wats th best way to do it?
ps the pipe ive highlighted will not b connected to anything if i do this. will this fuk up th car? i think it could make cold starts difficult.
that pipe is useless! Just get rid of it, won't affect anything.
As for the filter, if you just stick something there, it will be sucking in hot air.. You could prolly get a better filter fo ya tennis racket.. dunno. Just wait till ya convert to Multi point an chuck a pod on, it would be worth the wait.
that pipe that you highlighted is called a 'Hot stove pipe' the other end is connected to the stock extractors if my memory serves me right, yeh it useless mine got taken out when i did the extractors in my car
just a bit of useless info
My Cars Stats:
30th Ann. 1990 EA Falcon Stationwagon, Rosewood Red, EB GT Bonnet Scoop, EL XR6 Tear Shaped Air Vents, 5spd Manual, CFI with K & N Round Element, Pacemaker Extractors, Sony head unit, Now with EF Radiator an EF Thermo Fans.
sweet that pipes fukn ugly neway. smthn will wrk for the filter. gotta get that sound goin ay nothn without it. cnt do it 4 another week neway, starts gettn fixd at th panelbeaters ths week. som fukn idiot on his learners forgot how to giv way :( paid 2 grand for the falco, one week later got $2300 of damage on it. guttd
naa mate, but o well. parents helpn out until the other guy pays up, and he has to. only 17 so not exactly loaded.
but on another subject, converting to MPI seems to be the thing to do to the EA's, dnt know if im quite ready to take the job on myself yet.
So how much do you reckon it would cost at a shop, parts included??? thnx
Dude, if the car isnt currently on the road, do the conversion, it actually isnt that hard(according to those who have done it).
All up, the parts should cost you around $300 ish, maybe less. And if you do a search of this forum, that is absolutly sh1tloads of info on the conversion, not to mention if you have a question, people such as NZ (Karl) should be able to help you.
RIP 88' EA Falcon S pack
