eek Perth Motorplex EA

A very interesting EA emerged at the Perth Motorplex, August 11. All we want to know now is what mods the thing has! Thanks to BOF for the pics:

Nice.

15 secs still aint that fast......I dont think i'd be happy FULLY until my car could do a mid 14. Thats high hopes, but I'd love to think I could do it normally aspirated....or maybe with a little boost :)

But then if i were to go with some forced induction, why not go all out and make it run 12's.

mmmm.......anyone got a T04 and exhaust manifold spare??

hehe not me.

But it looks like the EA was keeping some fancier machines honest, which is good to see. To me, 15 seconds is incredibly fast - but then it's all relative. I was at a forum once where some Commodore guys were saying 10 seconds is nothing special. The word 'perverse' springs to mind...

its sad how a ten second VL Commodore aint considered quick anymore.....

Ah well

Wait till BA turbo......it surely will become the next cult car for Ford, much like the VLT was for Holden

But I hear Holden is playing a lot of catchup lately with work on one tonne utes and turbo sixes etc.....bastards. I say they keep with the monaro idea.

They are talking fully turbo 1200kg and less cars, we are talking relatively stock, heavy cars
