Rick and Inliner have been making progress on their sixes, so I had to get something done over the weekend! Exotic sixes! Sure make 5.0's look pretty common!

The Crossflow and T-5 are in. They fit like they were made to be there! Still a lot to do. The radiator is not mounted yet, the clutch master cylinder is still laying on the fender, and the fuel system needs to be finished, along with a ton of details. But I'm making progress on my 220hp Australian six.

This engine is originally from an injected XF Falcon. A few internal changes though. Total seal gapless rings, more compression (9.4:1), a slightly larger cam than stock. And SDS EFI is running the injection system, so there's no longer a vane air meter either.

Where did you here about the Auz Falcon and how did you get hold of the donk?
If you're interested I'll try to get you some info on the XR6. FTE is making them breath fire here. Quite a few of the worked XR6's will give the XR8 a run for their money.

Got them from a firend in Perth (Swanview). We shipped over a large crate full of stuff last fall and I've been gathering parts ever since. We've got several Aussie engine projects going to include this one by Rick Smol.

Next up is another Crossflow with a holley 4bbl which is going into another Mustang coupe, and later this year a 4.0 OHC (possibly a Tickford) to go into an early fastback.

You guys can't keep all the good stuff to yourselves!

Truely awesome Jack! Say, if you want another intake manifold to start modifying let me know. The garage is getting a bit crowded... Speaking of which, did you ever send off my fuel line? Later,

John
