Mate 100,000km is just after running in on these falcon engines if serviced regularly. Don't forget some of the best performing engines are over 200,000km.

Happy Driving.

I've got 9000km's to go till I crack 100000 in the old girl and I'm dreading the day. I think it's going to be the day that shows she's not a spring chicken anymore.

Hey sparkles, it sounds sweet. I really like the wheel spin in 2nd.
I hope mine still sounds and goes as sweet with another 40,000 on the clock.

yeah i wonder why that is. the old 4.0L OHC likes to rev with 100,000 or so kms on it. I wonder if its in the computer to release all the power at a certain km interval. Would make sence on the new turbo or V8 models. ????
