Title: Moddifying a galaxy
Post by: Grant2012 on February 21, 2012, 06:14:05 PM
Hi gang, first time galaxy owner long time Ford owner. Just curious whos done what to their galaxy? I've done mad things in the past including an escort cossy with 460bhp and a 4x4 mondeo which coped with everything. So far I lowered the gal and put 18's on which has made a good difference but where do you stop? i'm not going mad with this one as its not the right car to be sooping up but I still want a good sound system and i've been looking at the factory bodykit. anyone know the costs or part numbers for that and will it fit the v6 as i've only seen them on dervs so far! what about the 4motion kit aswell? has anyone converted a gal to a 4 wheel drive?

460bhp? Blimey bet that shifted :)

Mines lowered and had every option fitted to it but thats about it, I did toy with both the bodykit and the 4x4 system but they only did the 4motion on the V6 and the 115bhp versions which makes me think the transfer box can't handle the combination of power/torque from the bigger diesel engines but theoretically at least it should all bolt up. Finding a 4motion for spares at a reasonable price will be the tricky thing though, there arn't that many about and you need LOTS of bits off it to swap between the two (Even the fuel tank has a different part number for the 4x4)

With regards a bodykit there are few fiberglass options. Again the price is the prohibitive thing, I got it all priced up about 3 months ago: Its not pretty!
