Recently however there have been a few upgrades so I figured it was worth mentioning them.
Thursday 23rd January 2003 - Not knowing the last time the automatic transmission was serviced I decided to do it myself. The parts were easy enough to get. The gasket and filter cost $45 and it was about $25 for the oil.
Removing the oil pan prooved a bit messy, but it wasn't too bad.
This photo shows the Fairmont with the standard springs fitted.
After a bit of fiddling I removed the standard red rear springs. All I had to do was replace them with the shiny new yellow ones.
After a while I had replaced the rear springs, next was the front. I was surprised that the front actually seemed easier to replace than the rear.
After more hours than I'd care to mention I had a (slightly) lowered EB2.
I quite prefer the slightly lower look.
The XH intake (seen on the right) has a better air flow than the EB2 intake (left).
Fitting the intake required cutting off the mounts on the top of the radiator, but this didn't take long and the result looks cleaner than the factory fitted EB2 intake.
