Been working on this project for awhile and wanted to post a pic of the engine so you guys can see what I've been talking about. This is a mockup of the first test fit in the 66 coupe's engine compartment.

There's more on the website and a ton of discussion on the Ford Six forums.

What the heck is it? Looks like a tough installation project, and a wiring field day.

Makes me miss my ol' six cylinder. I always dreamed of building a Super Six as I called it. Looks like you have. And a T5 to boot!

Hey, invite some of your Six Cylinder buddies over here... I'm sure a lot of 'em own Mustangs. Besides Inliner needs some friends /forums/images/icons/smile.gif.

It's a 250ci Australian Ford Six. Alloy head with a Cleveland-style vavle arrangement. Port injected EFI using an aftermarket SDS EM-3E controller. It's mated to a T-5 and will replace the 250/AOD that was previously in the car.

It's very similar to the US 250 which makes it a piece of cake to install, but there's a lot of Aussie-unique parts, so that's a challenge.

It's all on my webpage, with a special page devoted to just this particular installation at http://home.cfl.rr.com/mustangsix/Engine/crossflow.htm .

These engines can make 280 hp naturally aspirated, and I've read of 450hp turbocharged versions. Mine is a very mild version which will only pull down about 200hp with the cam I'm using. But when you consider that this thing weighs 10lbs less than a 289/302, it makes for a very potent car, pretty much the equal of a stock 5.0.

Just trying to be diferent and still stay all-Ford. Here's another pic of the valve arrangement.

Those are amazing numbers for the I6. how hard is it to get parts for it (gaskets, waterpumps etc) for them in the 'States?

I'm in the crowd! I'm a 'six-packin performance freak' as well. I hang at the Ford 6 Forum, but I keep an eye on you guys as well.

This is what I've done:

Have you seen the Ford OHC?

Here's a pic:

http://fp.geocities.com/amartin725/OHC.jpg

It's official, Ford is coming out with the DOHC I6. The later OHC's have variable valve timing and make 240Hp stock. You can pick up an OHC with trans and complete ECU for around $2000 US. But, it shares nothing with the US stuff. Unlike the Crossflow which is very similar to the US 250 engine.

Ah yes, Ford Falcon AU XR6, a great vehicle, great engine the inline 6 VCT. Ford Australia did not have a V8 in its line up from 1982 to 1991 so the 6 got a fair bit of development, since 91 we have had the V8 back (5.0 imported from states) but development of the 6 has continued. I would love to see one of the new XR6 engines in a stang. Maybe for my next project, yeah, 66 coupe with an aftermarket supercharged XR6 engine, puttin out more than 300 hp, that would be cool. If all you inline 6 fans want any info or stuff sent over email me, I would love to help out.
