ive seen this before on a mates courier ute that was on gas and would get some pretty savage intake backfires.. what causes this? and is it a sign to steer clear of these cars?
ps. anybody with a EB2-EL falcon wagon on gas for sale PM me!
You'll find just about every falcon on gas has a blown apart air box. The factory fitted gas has got a different clip on the lid to allow it to 'spring' when a backfire occurs. This inturn saves the box from destruction. On the aftermarket gas fits, they fail to do this simple mod and the air box eventually hits its demise.
