As some of you may know, I have been planning for the last three months to buy Venom XR's old SI 5 Spd CFI EA. Well, last Friday I took the 12 hour trip to Sydney by bus with my cousin to take delivery of the beast.
Well to say the least, I am extremely happy. The car made the 900km trek down to Melboure with no hassles at all. We cruised at an average of about 130km/h all the way using about $100 worth of petrol.
Anyway, what I have done so far is :
*Waxed it twice (damn Venom! did you use a scourer to clean the car??)
*New centre console
*New roof lining
*Detailed the engine bay
*Changed the oil and spark plugs
*Replaced the gear knob
What I am doing very soon :
*Installing new 10 blade fan and clutch (old one's rooted)
*Getting the MPI conversion (Already have the parts)
*Changing the dashboard
*Upgrading the door trims to SII cloth ones
*Installing a new head unit
*Pod filter :s5
Today I picked up all the MPI stuff I need pretty much. Does anybody know if the CFI and MPI fuel pumps are the same?? The person I bought the stuff off said that he checked with a dealer service department manager and a friend who works at Ford and they both apparently said fuel pumps are the same.
Another thing, I had taken pictures of the car but the stupid disk aint working so I'll put some on later.
