EA 5spd, wat size exhaust is best???

hey fellow falcon lovers,
just bought an ea spack 5spd and im not happy with how it sounds. Does anyone else hate the extremely loud "fan noise" that ea's seem to have? any hints on how to reduce the fan noise? also, im bout to get a new exhaust. i need some advice on what system to get, i want extractors aswell but im not to sure on what sizes i should be lookin at. i want a deep sound but not too loud, and most of all i want a performance increase. anyone got any information on wat size etc would be best?? thanx heaps

your clutch fan is prolly buggered, my EA certainly doesnt have a loud fan noise.

Bro with the fan, remove and fit some EL thermo fans, and wire up relay and switch, temp switch.

Exhaust, 2.5inch max naturally aspirated, get extractors first, pacemakers are the one I would get, not to expensive and do the job, then hiflow cat, centre muffler, and resonator, for forced induction 3inch.

IF YOU DONT TRY IT YOU WONT KNOW.

Clutch fans tend to go at about 150000Km, i replaced mine 6months ago and now you cannot hear it running plus temp really good. Get a set of genie or pacemaker extractors, 2.5in exhaust, 1 lukey muffler and 2.5in opening to your cat, that is on my car and it sounds great.

i've got extracs, and a cat-back.. .. 3" to 2.5" w/muffler and a single res...

has a nice quiet burble at idle, but going upto your rev's has a nice deepish racing sound with a peak.. sound better than alot of ea/b's i've heard few tend to sound like they got a hole in the muffler :\

2.5" is recomended. 3' is overkill.
I had a 2.5" on my ea, with 1 lukey sports muffler and no res. Sounded pretty good i thought.

If you want it to sound nice and deep get 2.5" piping, 1 straight through muffler and throw on a couple of hotdogs, it still has a nice rumble to it but not as loud.

My mate and I are running 2.5" pipe, 2.5" cats, straight through mufflers and pacemaker extractors. They sound just about exactly the same except mine isnt as loud because of a 24" and 12" hotdog.

my Fairlane V8 has the standard 2 inch dual into 2.5 inch single with the standard muffler and the rear resonator removed it sounds pretty good for a stock system.

the wagon has a 2.5 inch catback system with a redback(i believe)muffler and a hotdog it sounds pretty wicked


2.5 is the limit i'd go on a naturally aspirated 6... 3 inch is definatley overkill and you start losing power
