    exhaust sounds

    i would have thought that all depends on how many revs it's going to do. 2.5" surely would be fine for 5500rpm for eg on a 4 litre ish? probably higher revs even

    exhaust sounds

    i was hoping you'd find this thread, because i was going to post similar.. extractors haven't made any sound difference i've noticed before

    XD Headlight Glass

    Hi, I can't remember how the XD glass comes off. but just wondering who's doing the headlight re chrome.. and if they do plastic reflectors also i had some done AGES ago and it might be handy for other members to know who's still reconditioning them. @SPArKy_Dave would possibly need it sooner or later also.

    Lgp dedicated ford ticks over but won't stay alive

    something you can try on LPG cars if you suspect it's converter.. is to tip HOT water Boiling even. over the converter.. this will soften up the GUNK that can build up inside.. if it's suddenly working fine.. then it's a dirty converter.. (i was told they can't be cleaned, but i'd have a go if i had one.. i had to clean Landi brand converter every 12 months in My XF)

    Weird NC Fairlane 4.0 issues...

    read Thom's post and i was wrong also
  6. would have been interesting for My Dads Leyland V8 in transit van.. but he never would have spent $4000 odd. (modified his bell housing to accept a $150 used C10)

    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    i've only been in stock 2 litre cortinas (3) and all three of them had GRUNT! (the 3.77 diff helps) but they took off quick and pulled hard and one was an auto. i'd be torn also on what to fit, (same issue with the gemini i have) open the bonnet and stock looking is more appealing. i have no idea how well the 1600 kent can go, but if it's already a fun car with 1300 it's probably plenty with some work.

    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    you can tell it's not a gemini.. because there is a boot floor that doesn't look like your spare wheel well.. the repairs are coming along fast, guessing you will have to get a move on finding a 1600 with how fast it's moving along. what was the estimate of when it will be finished?

    Rear conversion

    EA EB ED wagon diff is same as XG also. .(will be likely 2.92 from EA with 3 speed auto, and 3.23 or 3.27 also for the rest) EF EL wagon and XH can fit easily but need a bit more stuffing around with brake lines and cables. however.. why do you want rear discs? they have GARBAGE hand brakes.. and i don't recall ever having an issue with My XF ute with drums, and only swapped to discs later due to fitting an XD ghia diff (LSD wanted, but they have vented discs... unlike the EA/XG etc solid) if it's due to having mag wheels that show a drum, then fair enough, but if you can't see it, i don't think discs are an upgrade.. (would be needed if engineering though)
