hmmm pretty expensive to mod the early windsors... but if u have the dosh theres plenty of potential... decent exhaust would be a good start then maybe after market heads and manifold to aid breathing... the list goes on! dunno bout power outputs...

First mod is exhaust and extractors which should set you back just under $1k. Then try and get hold of a set of GT40P heads and Explorer intake from an AU V8, hopefully cost around $1500-$2000. This will give you somewhere around 200kw and provide a good base for other mods.

save your money BEASTFORD cause once u get one mod done you have to keep going, then u reliaze that you just spent thousends of $$$ for nothing, money that could go towards your next car!!!

But if you want any mods just do your exhaust and leave it at that!

Im currently saving my money for my next car instead of modding it, cause your never going to get the money u put into your car back when u go to sell it!

But its up to you :) thats just my 2 cents!
