biggrin Sundeep finally has a 'decent' EA

Hey Guys,

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
*Clear indicators

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.

Thanks guys!

Sundeep

Congrats, what color is the car? How does the CFI go with the 5 speed in your opinion?

Thanks Rmyers (forgot your name buddy, sorry hehe)

The T5 goes pretty well with a CFI. Spins the wheels really easily and also chirps in to second if I try hard enough, not that I drive it or anything.....sshhhh

And it's starkers white btw

Sundeep the MPI pump is different. What he told you about them being the same is B/S

Happy to see you finally take delivery dude, I'm sure this EA is in very good hands.
Looking forward to seeing pictures...
Will be quite a beast when converted to MPI :)

i thought it was 250kpa for the MPFI pump? either way the CFi pump cant provide the fuel rail with enough juice

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted
